The Two Gentlemen of Verona

The Two Gentlemen of Verona

  

by William Shakespeare

The Two Gentlemen of Verona Act 5, Scene 2 Summary

  • At the Duke's court in Milan, Thurio asks Proteus to tell him what Silvia thinks of him. Proteus says that Silvia doesn't like it when Thurio opens his mouth to speak but, other than that, she seems to be warming up to him.
  • "Sebastian" stands next to Proteus muttering insults that only the audience can hear. (This technique is called an "aside," by the way.)
  • The Duke storms in and announces that Eglamour and Silvia have run off to find that loser Valentine. Everyone should grab their gear and horses so they can help track down the runaways.
  • Thurio says he'll go along but only to punish Eglamour – he's not really into Silvia anymore.
