The Two Gentlemen of Verona
By William Shakespeare
Translation by Amelia Roper
A contemporary translation of one of Shakespeare’s earliest explorations of love and friendship.
In one of his earliest plays, Two Gentlemen of Verona, Shakespeare began exploring themes of love and friendship that became the focus of some of his greatest works. Amelia Roper’s translation focuses on how the verse sounds—the feeling of the words as spoken by an actor and listened to by an audience. This version offers a new sort of life to the play, letting audiences feel like they’re truly hearing it as Shakespeare’s audience might have more than four hundred years ago.
