Description

Full Length Play

Drama

Bertolt Brecht's adaptation of Shakespeare's play. Coriolanus is about the Roman military leader. Brecht emphasizes class struggle rather than what he calls the bourgeois theatre's depiction of Coriolanus as a hero and of the plebeians as merely comic figures. For Brecht, Coriolanus's tragedy rests mainly in his belief that he is irreplaceable.
