The Two Gentlemen of Verona

The Two Gentlemen of Verona


by William Shakespeare

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


We're giving this play an "R" rating because Proteus comes pretty close to raping Silvia in Act 5, Scene 4. In fact, the threat of rape is a running theme throughout the play, which you can read more about by going to our discussion of the theme of "Violence."
