One of Shakespeare’s early comedies, The Two Gentlemen of Verona satirizes youthful love with all of its excesses, betrayals and heartache. The play uses many of the comic devices found elsewhere in Shakespeare — a woman disguising herself as a man, an outlaw band in the forest, mistaken identity, and the outrageous actions of comic servants — all to entertain and delight.
