Twelfth Night is a very traditional comedy. In a very real and pervasive sense, Twelfth Night is a satire on love, at least of Petrarchan love. Petrarch in his poetry created a distance, an unworthiness, between the loved one and the lover. The female is idealized and the male should be content to worship her from afar. The man places the woman on a pedestal—an unequal relationship is implied. This makes the last characteristic of comedy, i.e. procreation, impossible. A Petrarchan lover must be taught a more reasonable, more practical attitude toward love. This is a major theme in Twelfth Night.
