ruined medieval castle against purple night sky

Just Like Romeo & Juliet? [Shakespeare For You]

🎭 SILVIA:  Who is that that spake?  
PROTEUS:  One, lady, if you knew his pure heart’s truth,
You would quickly learn to know him by his voice.  
SILVIA:  Sir Proteus, as I take it.  

— Silvia & Proteus, Two Gentlemen of Verona 4-2


Silvia is in her room of a high tower.  It is evening and too dark to see see who is under the tower from the window.

Which is very much like the first balcony scene of Romeo & Juliet.  Juliet cannot see Romeo, for she says something like “From the voice, are you Romeo the Montague?”  (Which means she proposed Romeo without seeing him.  Wow.)

I love Shakespeare using the same situation into varied plots and circumstances.

I can see how Sylvia expected that someone below could be her love.
I can see how Sylvia is disappointed to know that someone below is her hate.
