Quick Overview

Cambridge The Two Gentlemen of Verona

Professor Schlueter approaches this early comedy as a parody of two types of Renaissance educational fiction: the love-quest story and the test-of-friendship story which by their combination show high-flown human ideals as incompatible with each other and with human nature. A thoroughly researched illustrated stage history reveals changing conceptions of the play which nevertheless often fail to come to terms with its subversive impetus. Since the first known production at David Garrick's Drury Lane Theatre it has tempted major directors and actors including John Philip Kemble William Charles Macready and Charles Kean who established a tradition of understanding which cast its shadow even on such modern productions as Denis Carey's famous staging for the Bristol Old Vic and Robin Phillips's for the Royal Shakespeare Company. This updated edition includes a new introductory section by Lucy Munro on recent stage and critical interpretations bringing the performance history completely up to date.

Introduction: date; Themes and criticism; Structure and sources; Speed and Lance; The outlaws; Stage history; Recent stage and critical interpretations by Lucy Munro; List of characters; The play; Textual analysis; Appendix: a further note on stage directions; Reading list.
