Timon of Athens by William Shakespeare( Book )
1 edition published in 1734 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Karl Klein's edition of Timon of Athens introduces Shakespeare's play as a complex exploration of a corrupt, moneyed society, and Klein sees the protagonist not as a failed tragic hero, but as a rich and philanthropic nobleman, surrounded by greed and sycophancy, who is forced to recognise the inherent destructiveness of the Athenian society from which he retreats in disgust and rage." "Klein establishes Timon as one of Shakespeare's late works, arguing, contrary to recent academic views, that evidence for other authors besides Shakespeare is inconclusive. The edition argues that the play is neither tragedy, satire nor comedy, but a subtle and complete drama whose main characters contain elements of all three genres."--Jacket
