Timon of Athens (The New Cambridge Shakespeare) - Shakespeare, W.

Karl Klein's edition of Timon of Athens introduces Shakespeare's play as a complex exploration of a corrupt, moneyed society. 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.

SELECTED DIALOGUES (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - LUCIAN (Translation by COSTA, C. D. N.)

The Greek satirist Lucian is a key figure in later Greek literature, and was immensely influential on later European literature (Shakespeare used him as a source for Timon of Athens); he invented comic dialogue as a satiric tool.

The introduction stresses Lucian's importance in his own and later times, making his writing of interest to students across a wide range of disciplines, not to mention TV sit-com scriptwriters. The range of characters in Lucian's satires, from philosophers to courtesans, make…
