In an article called “The Two Worlds of Shakespearean Comedy” Shearman Hawkins (1967) has proposed a second type presenting a number of significant variations on the original model. According to this critic, comedies like The Comedy of Errors, Love’s Labour’s Lost, Much Ado About Nothing, and Twelfth Night, are built on an “alternate pattern” according to which, instead of leaving the court to move into the green world, the characters stay put and are visited by outsiders who upset the daily life of the community (like Cesario arriving in Illyria, for instance) (ibid: 67–8).
The season of the Revels in winter used to begin on November 17 when, in a jolly atmosphere of bell-ringing, bonfires, and jousts, Queen Elizabeth returned to Whitehall to celebrate the anniversary of her accession to the throne in 1558. During the twelve days of Christmas, the court was alive with all sorts of entertainments, including plays, organized by the Master of the Revels. On Candlemas or Shrove Tuesday the court set off for Greenwich or Richmond, when the ceremony of the washing of the feet of twelve poor people took place on Maundy Thursday.
