Coriolanus completes the line of tragedies written by Shakespeare in the 1600s. It is the story of a heroic military commander who – when he enters the political arena – is destroyed by his inability to compromise. In the intensity of his pride, Coriolanus is not very sympathetic – not at any rate to a modern audience – but his dilemma is a fascinating one and his fate powerfully tragic.
