Who hath it? The man that hath no music in himself, Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. Viola now asked in whose country she was, and learning that the young Duke Orsino ruled there, and was as noble in his nature as in his name, she decided to disguise herself in male attire, and seek for employment with him as a page.

It would make a great gift for someone interested in the finer aspects of Shakespeare's work. Which is Sebastian? Then Prospero, after many years of absence, went back to his own dukedom, where he was welcomed with great joy by his faithful subjects.
