This is book number 4 in the Arden Shakespeare Third series.

This Roman play is one of Shakespeare's last tragedies, best known for its political and military themes. Its hero, Coriolanus, is a proud General who does not hesitate to show his arrogant and outspoken contempt of the Roman rabble. The Tribunes banish him and he raises an army to take his revenge on Rome. He finally concedes to the pleas of his mother to spare the city and leaves only to be publicly killed by his former allies.

Peter Holland is a former Director of the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford-upon-Avon and President of the Shakespeare Association of America. He is a pre-eminent international scholar. His comprehensive introduction and commentary notes open up the language, themes and ideas in this complex yet richly rewarding play for the student and teacher.
Peter Holland is the McMeel Family Professor of Shakespeare Studies at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana. He was Director of the Shakespeare Institute, Stratford-upon-Avon (1997-2002) and President of the Shakespeare Association of America (2007-8).
