Feste like Shakespeare

Shakespeare in his play Twelfth Night created a character name Feste The Fool. This character throughout the play continuously talks back to authorities and somewhat questions them and their beliefs and actions. This is similar to how Shakespeare would talk back to the queen in his plays/sonnets. Talking out about religion, Catholic’s vs. Protestants, questioning religion. Making plays that were against the norm; taking shots at the big dogs of the world.
