Item description for The Two Gentlemen of Verona (Arden Shakespeare: Third Series) by William C. Carroll...

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Two Gentlemen of Verona (Arden Shakespeare: Third Series)?

An early romantic comedy  May 24, 2007
This is one of Shakespeare's earlier plays, and so it is not as sophisticated or as polished as some of his later ones are. The play is about love, and the major cause of discord is the two differing varieties of love that are portrayed. This is one of Shakespeare's shorter plays, and certainly worth reading if only to see how far Shakespeare went from where he started.
Arden Is the best  May 12, 2007
I always get the Arden editions of Shakespeare. They are very detailed and user friendly.
Being one of Shakespeare's early plays the plot is a little inconsistant. It seems in the last scene that shakespeare just wanted to finish the play and therefore everything happens in a few pages that makes it a little unrealistic.
The play does have some lovely speeches though, and is quite comical and an easy story to follow.
