This generously annotated updated edition of Coriolanus provides a thorough reconsideration of Shakespeare`s remarkable, and probably his last, tragedy. A substantial introduction situates the play within its contemporary social and political contexts - dearth, riots, the struggle over authority between James I and his first parliament, the travails of Essex and Ralegh - and pays particular attention to Shakespeare`s shaping of his primary source in Plutarch`s Lives. It presents a fresh account of how the protagonist`s personal tragedy evolves within Shakespeare`s most searching exploration of the political life of a community. The edition is alert throughout to the play`s theatrical potential, while the stage history also attends to the politics of performance from the 1680s onwards, including European productions following the Second World War. A new introductory section by Bridget Escolme covers recent productions of Coriolanus, and criticism of the last ten years, with particular focus on gender and the play`s politics.
