Two Gentlemen of Verona is a beautiful and
touching story of two small boys who worked
really hard in the city of Verona. One day, the
narrator met these boys in Verona. They were
selling wild strawberries. When asked about their
age and name, they told him that Nicola, the
elder was 13 whereas Jacopo, the younger, was 12.
Next day, the narrator found them doing brisk
business in shoe-shining. When the narrator
asked them the reason for changing their
business, they told him that they did many
things. For the next few days, the narrator found
them shining shoes, selling fruits, hawking
newspaper, conducting tourists round the town and
so on. The narrator became eager to know why
these small children worked so hard. He even
realized that despite their hard work, they never
spent money on themselves. Their clothes were
dirty and they usually ate black bread and figs.
He teased them by asking if they had plans to
emigrate to America. To this they replied in
negative saying that they had other plans. Then
Jacopo requested the narrator to help them reach
Poleta, 30 km. from Verona. The narrator agreed
and took them there the next afternoon. In
Poleta, they drew up at a large villa and rushed
inside. He later came to know that it was a
hospital where their sister, Lucia, was under
treatment for tuberculosis of the spine. He asked
the nurse about Lucia. She told the narrator that
a bomb had destroyed their family and these boys
grew to hate the Germans. After the war was over,
there was peace all around. But not in the lives
of these children as it was at this moment that
they discovered Lucia suffering from the deadly
disease. But after the treatment, she was
recovering. He was further informed that her
brothers made the payments every week for the
smooth going of treatment. The narrator was
touched by the devotion of the two boys. He could
see the ray of hope for human society. Then all
the three came back to Verona.
