After the exotic eroticism of Antony and Cleopatra, Shakespeare returned to Rome for one of his final tragedies, and the change could not have been more dramatic. Coriolanus is one of Shakespeare's harshest and most challenging studies of power, politics and masculinity, based around the life of Caius Marcius. The play is set in the early years of the Roman Republic. Its famous opening scene, particularly admired by Bertolt Brecht, portrays its citizens as starving and rebellious, and horrified by the arrogant and dismissiveattitude of Caius Marcius, one of Rome's most valiant but also political naive soldiers.

(Key Words: Theater, Plays, William Shakespeare, Rome, Coriolanus, Plutarch, Homer, Blood).
