When Proteus decides to leave Julia or not.
A person cannot be judged by the awkward appearance as a book cannot be judged by its cover both the boys wore untidy dress and looked shabby but the authors interest on them …increased on finding them indulging in all sorts of work given to them they were ready to handle any work given to them and completed it with full dedication their sincerity and devotion to the jobs impressed the author they did all kinds of jobs for their sisters treatment they earned much a lot of profit from the job they did but didn't use them for themselves but used it for their sisters treatment they showed maturity that was far behind their age these qualities shown by the boys made the narrator to give the title two gentlemen of Verona
The story deals with the themes of duty and devotion, selfless love, sacrifice, motherly affection and familial responsibility. Duty and devotion is said to be the central the…me of the short story. The narrator visits Ireland out of his duty and devotion. In the same way, Rose also displays her sense of duty when she shoulders the burden of the family at such an young age. Her devotion to her family members, especially to Michael, is best revealed when she sacrifices her own life for the sake of Michael. The themes of selfless love and sacrifice are also seen all throughout the story. Rose loves all her family members whereas her motherly affection towards rose is deep rooted. She even pawns the birthday gift given by the author to buy milk for Michael. When Michael is down with pneumonia she nurses him day and night, heedless of the danger to herself. As the author himself points out Rose is a little perfect mother and it is her fathomless love towards Michael that prompts her to sacrifice her own life for him. by Anish Thomas firstname.lastname@example.org GVHSS Kurumathur 9961091162
A.J. Cronin has very well carved the idea of 'selfless help' and explained the importance of dedication towards relationships in the story Two Gentlemen of Verona. The story r…evolves around the two boys named Nicola and Jacopo who do numerous things to earn money only to pay for their sister's treatment who suffers from tuberculosis of the spine. The story begins with the narrator driving down the foothills of the Alps. Here is when he first encounters the two brothers selling wild strawberries. Even after the driver forbade the narrator to buy the wild fruits, he bought the biggest basket and drove towards the town. This scene emphasises on the first step of growing intimacy between the narrator and the two boys. Next day, the boys were found shining shoes in the public square. This amazed the narrator. Here is when they revealed the fact that they did numerous kinds of things to earn money. Here, the narrator is shown to develop a soft corner for them in his heart. He finds them to be innocent, serious, pleasant and earnest. The boys are very useful for the narrator. They are very willing to satisfy all that the narrator required. They were also found selling newspapers by the narrator one stormy night. One day, when the narrator asked if he could help them in any way they said they would be very grateful if they got a lift to the nearby village Poleta. Although it didn't come in the narrator's way he took them there. The boys got down in a building and asked the author to wait in a nearby café while they would be back within an hour. Eagerness led the narrator to follow the boys up to a place which was actually a hospital. On peeping through a room led by a nurse, he realised that the boys were talking to a girl who resembled them. He did not feel like intruding and thus asked the nurse the details about the boys. This is when the nurse told him there heart rendering story about their father being killed in a war and home being destroyed in a war and their sister suffering from tuberculosis. The brothers lived in a shelter and literally starved only so that they could pay for their sister's treatment. Them keeping a secret and helping their sister showed that war had not shaken their spirit. They were noble and gentle and great human beings in their own special yet subtle way. This story distinctly talks about how true the amplification says: "All that glitters is not gold," in turn explaining the fact that appearances are deceptive.
Both stories of A J Cronin are heart touching. In "Irish Rose " he tells about a small girl sacrificed her life for her little brother who lost his mother when he was only one… month. The main character is a 14 year old girl. In "Two Gentleman of Verona" he tells the story of two brothers sacrificing their life for sister who suffering from TB of spine.
The two boys of Verona as described by AJ Cronin were very much sincere in their willingness to work. Even though they had a shabby appearance they shown up as a brilliant rol…e model to their society.This implies that "Appearances are Deceptive".

Shakespeare wrote plays, not sermons, so there does not need to be a message in every or any play he wrote. He wrote them to entertain. Nevertheless, the Two Gents does deal w…ith issues of fidelity, both in love and in friendship. Both Julia and Valentine are faithful to the fickle and treacherous Proteus, which makes the comedy come out all right in the end. A lot of people are troubled by Valentine's apparent choice of Proteus over Sylvia and, if that is what is going on, Sylvia's apparent complacency. A maturer playwright would have designed the scene better, but it would seem that Shakespeare wanted us to focus on Valentine's forgiveness of Proteus and the redeeming power of that forgiveness.
Never lose ur heart andnever lose ccourage. hard work will surely pay back. also fight the world and never surrender..
Dr. A.J. Cronin (1896 - 1981) was a well known physician and writer in English. Once, when he went to Ireland, he visited a poor colony. There he saw a 14-year old girl named …Rose Donegan carrying her younger brother Michael and feeding him with pipe water. He asked her about her family. Her mother died soon after giving birth to Michael. Her father was a drunkard who always made quarrels. So, it was Rose who handled the issues. They lived in a very poor condition. On Rose's 14th birthday, one of her relatives gave her a new set of clothes, but Rose, who was a selfless girl, sacrificed it for her family's wealth. She always went to help her father, who worked in a factory. Later, when her father stopped drinking, her family began to prosper. But alas! A sad news came to their ears. Michael was going to be adopted by a wealthy childless couple. That sad news made Rose shocked. Later, another news came that Michael was suffering from Pneumonia. Rose sake the permission of her father and other siblings for this action and went to the home of the couple. She cured her baby brother with strong will power, but unfortunately, when Michael got cured, Rose became affected with Pneumonia and died soon after. One year later, when Cronin again went to Ireland, he saw the church were Rose was buried. All other graves had many wreeths laid upon them, but the grave of Rose had only a wreeth formed by mother nature. At that time, he saw the Sun giving light towards the grave and brightening the name 'Rose Donegan' and her date of birth and death. Rose is a symbol of selfless love. I got information about this from my textbook in 12th standard. I can't say how can I express my courtsey towards my textbook.
Both the stories depict fathomless love and sacrifice of young hearts.The former towards her baby brother and the latter towards their sister.
We are not talking about the Shakespeare play here are we? Shakespeare's plays do not have moral lessons.
What are the similarities between the story Two Gentlemen of Verona written by William shakespeare and aj cronin?
A.J. Croninâ??s story of two young brothers sacrificing to care for their stricken older sister contrasts with the gentlemen in Shakespeareâ??s â?? Two Gentlemen of Ver…onaâ?? but helps define what a true gentleman is. Shakespeareâ??s friends use lies and deceit despite their status as gentlemen, whereas Croninâ??s have a nobility that belies their circumstances.
In Shakespeare's "Two Gentlemen of Verona," begins with two good friends saying goodbye. While Valentine is leaving for Milan, Proteus is in love with Julia, and will rema…in in Verona. Julia, in the meantime, is talking about all the men who love her and is wondering why Proteus has not confessed his feelings. Since it's the custom for wealthy men to send their sons on a trip away from home, Proteus' father complies and prepares to send him to Milan, too. Valentine, in the meantime, has fallen in love in Milan with Silvia, who treats him rather shabbily. When Proteus arrives, he falls in love with Silvia too. Julia disguises herself as a servant to Proteus and goes to Milan. She discovers his intentions towards Silvia and advises her that she is his girlfriend. In the end each couple is as it should be.
