CONFLICT

Protagonist: Valentine is the protagonist of The Two Gentlemen of Verona. He falls in love with Silvia, the daughter of the Duke of Milan, and plans to elope with her before her father makes her marry Thurio. When the Duke learns of the elopement plan, he banishes Valentine, who flees to the frontier of Mantua. Silvia follows her beloved to Mantua, where Valentine rescues her from the evil intentions of his friend Proteus. In the end, the Duke gives his blessing for Valentine and Silvia to wed.

Antagonist: Valentine's antagonist in the play is obtaining the hand of Silvia in marriage. During the play, Thurio, the Duke, and Proteus stand in the way of Valentine's plans to wed Silvia.

Climax: The climax occurs when Valentine rescues Silvia from the hands and evil intentions of Proteus. This rescue clears the path for him to marry his beloved Silvia.


Outcome: The play, with its contrived finish, ends in comedy. Valentine rescues Silvia from the inappropriate advances of Proteus, and the Duke recognizes his valor. Because Silvia obviously loves this man, who she has followed all the way to Mantua, the Duke decides that it is not appropriate for his daughter to marry Thurio. Instead, he blesses the union of Silvia and Valentine.
