The Life of Timon of Athens.

By William Shakespeare.

(7 x 4.25 x 0.5 inches). xxxviii, 239 pages. Edited by Maurice Charney. Language: English. Weight: 5.7 ounces. Mass Market Paperback. Reading Timon of Athens was like discovering a huge diamond in your backyard. I'd never heard anyone talk about it, never seen it alluded to, and yet, here it is, oozing with opulence. I loved loved loved this play. The plot is delicious, the language is fantastic, some of Shakespeare's best insults can be found here, and I really enjoyed seeing the vast change in Timon's character. It is a short play, and yes, there probably are a few inky areas subject to criticism, but even the "worst" of Shakespeare is going to be immeasurably better than anything else you might pick up to read. Some people allege that it is an "unfinished" play, but that's completely wrong. It is most certainly finished. The conclusion may not be as thematic at most of the "tragedies," but it is still a fine conclusion. I highly, highly recommend reading this play. It's super short so you'll be able to finish it in as little as a day, and it's always exciting to read a classic that people haven't pored and pored over. Timon definitely deserves more credit, in my opinion, as it's now one of my favorite Shakespeare plays.

REMAINDER, showing a small dot and a rubber stamp at the bottom edge of the text block. NOT a Book-Club or Ex-Library. 8vo. (8.25 x 5.5 x 0.3 inches). 87 pages. Translated by Alan Myers, with the author. Language: English. Weight: 5 ounces. First Edition Thus (1989), so stated. This translation was first published in "Comparative Criticism", volume 7 in 1985. Trade Paperback. Brodsky, a brilliant poet and sensitive translator, is also a stunning dramatist. A Platonic dialogue in the form of a double anachronism--the action takes place two centuries after our era--Joseph Brodsky’s only play, Marbles, is set in a prison cell that alone provides for the three unities of classic drama: those of time, place, and action. A nightmare rather than a utopia, this play proceeds according to the immanent logic of mental aggravation as its two characters, the inmates Publius and Tullius, examine the tautology of their psychological, historical, and purely physical confines. The fusion of its dour, somewhat terrifying vision with the macabre hilarity of its verbal texture allows Marbles to take its audience beyond the farthest reaches of the theatre of the absurd. Highly recommended.
