I'm looking at the theme of disguise in AULI, wondering if anyone has any good points they'd like to share, would be much appreciated, thanks.

When we see Portia incognito Balthazaar, in "the Merchant", or Rosalind incognito Ganymed, in "As You Like It", and, of course, there are other instances of a "maid in a man's attire", crafted by the Bard from Stratford upon the Avon River, we may see a disguise, an invention, may we not, that is, one might see, if you will, a labour of love that is devised to strike the mind's eye with an image of "the master-mistress of my passion" (vide sonnet 20) painted upon art's borrowed face, i.e., an image of the youthful countenance of his patron.
