Considered by some scholars to be Shakespeare's first play, Two Gentlemen of Verona is a comedy that tells of two best friends torn between their bonds of friendship and their need for romantic love. The play sets up many of the themes that Shakespeare would continue to use in his later works, including infidelity, deceit, foolishness inspired by love, and disguises. This special edition was published as the twenty third volume in a series of annual Shakespearian keepsakes prepared for friends of the publishers.
