Coriolanus by William Shapeskpeare is the playwrights last tragedy, telling of Caius Marcius, a proud Roman General, who gains the name Coriolanus when, successful in battle against the Volscians, he captures the town Corioli. When his subsequent arrogance prevents his receiving the consulship in Rome, Coriolanus now allies himself to his former adversary, the Volscian general Aufidius, and with him marches on Rome to effect revenge for this insult. Yet although deaf to the appeal of emissaries and old friends, finally Coriolanus is persuaded to spare the city by his mother's eloquance. Having made a treaty favourable to the Volscians, Coriolanus is nevertheless suspected by Aufidius of betraying Volscian interests, and publicly killed.

John Dover Wilson's New Shakespeare, published between 1921 and 1966, became the classic Cambridge edition of Shakespeare's plays and poems until the 1980s. The series, long since out-of-print, is now reissued. Each work contains a lengthy and lively introduction, main text, and substantial notes and glossary.From the Publisher:
Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
