Coriolanus

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(6) Tree Line

If you're new to Shakespeare, the language will take some getting used to. The good news is that the plot is pretty straightforward, so the storyline should be easy to follow.

One of the biggest favors you can do for yourself when reading this play (and this study guide) is to remember that "Caius Martius" and "Coriolanus" are the exact same character. Go to "What's Up With the Title" if you want to know what this is all about.
