    To a large degree, Shakespeare fails; one laughs, but neither with gusto nor joy. The audience in that time, and today would rather hear that everything resolved in the end for these characters. This section contains words approx. They sacrificed education, youthful pleasure, and desires for food, dress, and shelter and the tenets of their childhood for the sake of their sister.

    They went beyond their age and showed extreme diligence and determination to get what they required. When Valentine is exiled, he becomes a chief of the thug gang of other exiled people, but their violence is left offstage. Valentine asks for clemency for the outlaws, and suggests that his marriage to Silvia and Proteus' marriage to Julia should take place on the same day. You both look rather tired. At first, all the characters are driven by their primal instincts: saving their life, searching for their beloved, pursuing the rebellious woman. The author found the guileless kids in their dark earnest eyes.

    Marriage was pretty important too, but male bonds trumped everything. Although some people may argue that Shakespeares plays were not so well writen in the beginning of his career, there can be much said about his earlier plays like The Two Gentlemen of Verona. The side characters are also deep and meaningful. If the author and his friend required a pack of American cigarettes or seats for the opera or the name of a good restaurant, Jocopo and Nicola proved handy to meet their needs. True; and thy master a shepherd.
