The Tragedy of Coriolanus (facs. 1st Folio 1623)

Shakespeare’s Coriolanus is a dramatic tragedy about a hero who is famously resistant to theatricality and performance as a part of political life. It takes on the question of whether one’s deeds should be enough to secure one’s reputation, or whether one needs publicity and popularity as well. This is a facsimile edition of the play from the First Folio edition of 1623.
