(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.
