Too Fair, Too True, Too Holy [Shakespeare For You]

🎭 Already have I been false to Valentine,
And now I must be as unjust to Turio.
Under the colour of commending him
I have access my own love to prefer.
But Silvia is too fair, too true, too holy
To be corrupted with my worthless gifts. 
  — Proteus, Two Gentlemen of Verona 4-2


This monologue is a confession of

1 what he has done
2 what he is going to do
3 what he is suffering.

Shall I play this as a villain without no remorse for his betrayal of his friend?

Or, rather as a kind of victim who feels as if he has been driven by some unnatural force, and doesn’t know what is going on?

I may like to play the latter.  But I need to see the whole frame of the play, to decide which is more dramatically interesting whether he is bad or not so bad.
