About the Title

The Two Gentlemen of Verona by William Shakespeare are Valentine and Proteus, both "gentlemen" by virtue of their rank and wealth. Each, however, resorts to some ungentlemanly behavior in pursuit of the woman he loves. Valentine plans to elope with Sylvia and then becomes a robber chief when his plot is discovered. The two-timing Proteus woos Julia with promises of love and loyalty but abandons her abruptly after meeting Sylvia, whom he courts by fraud and flattery. The play begins in the Italian city of Verona and ends in Milan.
