Fire That’s Closest Kept Burns Most Of All [Shakespeare For You]


Julia:  His little speaking shows his love but small.  

Lucetta:  Fire that’s closest kept burns most of all.  

— Julia, Lucetta, Two Gentlemen of Verona 1-2


Julia is in love with Proteus (he), and she needs a proof that he is in love with her too.  Lucetta knows that.  

You may act Julia as stubborn, proud, and showing no love toward him.  Julia will speak her true mind that she is madly in love with him as a monologue later, so be brave to hide it.  

You may act Lucetta as kind, understanding, nice maid, nursing a stubborn child.

Try many combination.  Their ages may be quite close, like sisters.
