Title: A Comparison of Six Adaptations of Shakespeare's Coriolanus, 1681-1962 (How Changing Politics Influence the Interpretation of a Text)
Author: David George
Abstract: Coriolanus is the last of Shakespeare's Roman plays, a genre he returned to several times during this career. Like many of his countrymen, Shakespeare seems to have had a real interest in Rome, and the Roman plays allowed him the opportunity to focus on two areas of interest in the same play; politics and the nature of tragedy. Moreover, in Coriolanusm he seems to have presented the nature of politics and tragedy as problematic, food for thought for those in his audience willing to ponder such things.
