Preface, Coriolanus

Описание:

Coriolanus is perhaps the most brilliant political play ever written. Set in Ancient Rome, it remains a gripping psychological study of the relationship between personality and politics. The introduction to this new edition considers Shakespeare`sadaptation of his historical material (Plutarch`s Lives) in relation to the social and political conditions in London and Stratford at the time of the play`s composition, also offering new evidence that it was written in 1608. Professor Parker examines the play`s history and particularly its staging at the Blackfriars theatre, where it was probably the first of Shakespeare`s plays to be presented and for which it may have been written. A thorough commentary pays special attention to the needs ofactors and directors.
