Abstract:

Raised to the heights of power in recognition of his bravery against the Volscian army, Caius Marcius Coriolanus finds himself betrayed by Brutus and Sicinius. Exiled from Rome and seeking vengeance, Coriolanus allies himself with Aufidius, a general in the Volscian army. But, as Coriolanus discovers with tragic consequences, treachery begets treachery. Coriolanus is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, written between 1605 and 1608. The play is based on the life of the legendary Roman leader, Gaius Marcius Coriolanus. Although a lesser known work than his other plays, it was famously praised by the poet T.S. Eliot as being superior to Hamlet.
