Timon of Athens

William Shakespeare and Thomas Middleton
Edited by John Jowett

The Oxford Shakespeare

  • The first full edition of Timon of Athens to identify the play as a collaboration between Shakespeare and Thomas Middleton, and supplies the previously missing context of Middleton and his works in generous detail.
  • Explores the play's appeal in the modern theatre as a precursor of Absurdist drama, and as a work fitting to an age anxious about materialism and over-consumption.
  • Offers an up-to-date commentary on the play that is more detailed and more thorough than any previously published.
  • Appendices include selections of source materials and a chronology of all major stage productions.
