"The Two Gentlemen of Verona" Paperback / softback

Edited by William Carroll

Part of the The Arden Shakespeare series

Paperback / softback


Two Gentlemen of Verona is commonly agreed to be Shakespeare's first comedy, and probably his first play. A comedy built around the confusions of doubling, cross - dressing and identity, it is also a play about the ideal of male friendship and what happens to those friendships when men fall in love.William Carroll's engaging Introduction focuses on the traditions and sources that stand behind the play and explores Shakespeare's unique and bold treatment of them.

Special attention is given to the strong female figure of Julia and the controversial final scene.
