Description

The plot derives from Plutarch and may be Shakespeare's last tragedy. It takes place in the early days of the Roman republic. It deals with the instability and constant upheaval of the republic, the downside of popular rule and democratic extremism, and with Coriolanus's tragic flaws in which his nobility is outweighed by his lack of political realism and tact. The attitude to the competing forms of governance is ambiguous. Coriolanus is honest, lacking tact, out of fashion, unwilling to appease the expectations of the people. He has been taught a code of death before dishonor by his domineering mother, she can never be satisfied even though he presents his war achievements to her as love offerings. He is defeated by her overriding ambition for him.
