Part of: The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (The Oxford Shakespeare) Coriolanus

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 edition comes from the 1916 Oxford University Press edition of all of Shakespeare’s plays and poems.
