Tips to learn the Character sketch of the Narrator of the Two Gentlemen Of Verona

  1. Kind-hearted – As soon as the narrator saw those little kids selling fruits, the first thought that occurred in his mind was to help them by buying the fruits they were selling.
  2. Sensitive – The narrator is sensitive in nature as he felt pity and sympathized with the situation those kids were in.
  3. Supportive – He wanted to help those children more so he offered to drive them to the place they were going to, which shows he was more supportive afterward he understood those kids’ situation.
  4. Respectful – When the narrator decided to keep the secret of Nicola and Jacopo safe we witness that he is respectful to them as those kids never wanted anyone to know about the problem they were in.
  5. Selfless – Narrator’s behaviour and his actions towards Nicola and Jacopo showed his selfless nature.

The narrator of the story is a kind hearted person, and we can see that when he looks at those boys he feels pity for them because of their shabby look. Despite his driver’s warning he still buys the fruits from them to be able to help them. In this incident we witness one more quality of the narrator that is, if he wanted he just could have given those kids some money to help them but he didn’t do it which is reasonable. He helped them by buying the fruits they were selling, which is the right way to help the people in need. This implies that the narrator wants to help the people in a reasonable manner. He is a wise man too as he decided to not let the family secret of those two little boys out. When the narrator helps those children further that shows how selfless the narrator is as if he would have wanted he would have chosen not to help them any further.
