Oliver has fallen in love with Aliena at first glance, and he tells Orlando that she has consented to  marry him. He vows to give to Orlando his "father's house and all the revenue that was old Sir  Roland's . . . and here live and die a shepherd." Orlando approves of the marriage, and it is then  scheduled for the following day. Rosalind, as Ganymede, enters and tells of the whirlwind courtship  of Aliena and Oliver in which they "no sooner looked but they loved." When Orlando confesses his  own "heart-heaviness" because he is without his own true love, Ganymede tells him that  he,  Ganymede, is knowledgeable in the art of magic and says, "If you do love Rosalind so near the heart  as your gesture cries it out, when your brother marries Aliena, [then] shall you marry her [Rosalind],"
