See The Wonders Of The World [Shakespeare For You]

🎭 I rather entreat thy company
To see the wonders of the world abroad
Than, living dully sluggardized at home,
Wear out thy youth with shapeless idleness.

— Valentine, Two Gentlemen of Verona 1-1


Whether this play is the first written one or not, it is certain one of his earliest.  

Putting that in mind, “To see the wonders of the world abroad” must be young William’s great desire, for he repeats this idea in another earliest play “The Taming of the Shrew,” and as we know, he traveled many places in his imagination all through his writing history.  

So, say the line “to see the wonders of the world” with fully positive excited energy like you are about to go to your dream pop-rock concert or baseball games of Dodgers.  

Then, put a tone of disgust in “dully sluggardized” and “shapeless idleness”.
