Coriolanus Act 1, Scene 8 Summary

  • Back on the battlefields, Caius Martius meets up with his mortal enemy, Tullus Aufidius. (Cue dramatic music.)
  • As these two go at it in man-to-man combat, some very impressive trash talk ensues.
  • Just as Caius Martius gains the upper hand, Aufidius' troops come to his rescue and the Volscians run away with their tails between their legs.
  • Aufidius tells us he is totally "sham'd" that his soldiers had to save his life.
