William Shakespeare, Timon of Athens. A pretty straightforward problem play

William Shakespeare, Timon of Athens. A pretty straightforward problem play. Rich man gives away all his money and misjudges friends. Timon of Athens - Arden Shakespeare is a rather simple story which can be summarized in a single sentence: A wealthy patron gives his all, but imprudently donates himself into dire poverty, and finding himself unable to borrow from the friends he has enriched, becomes a misanthrope in the wilds. But there are three characters who make Timon of Athens more than a straight up-and-down tragedy in a minor key.

When comes your book forth? . Of Athens here, my lord.

When comes your book forth? POET. Upon the heels of my presentment, sir. Let's see your piece. I was sending to use Lord Timon myself, these gentlemen can witness; but I would not for the wealth of Athens I had done't now. Commend me bountifully to his good lordship, and I hope his honour will conceive the fairest of me, because I have no power to be kind. And tell him this from me: I count it one of my greatest afflictions, say, that I cannot pleasure such an honourable gentleman.

Timon of Athens (The Life of Tymon of Athens) is a play by William Shakespeare, probably written in collaboration with Thomas Middleton in about 1605–1606, which was published in the First Folio in 1623. It is about the fortunes of an Athenian named Timon (and probably influenced by the philosopher Timon of Phlius). The central character is a beloved citizen of Athens who through tremendous generosity spends his entire fortune on corrupt hangers-on only interested in getting the next payout.

by William Shakespeare. TIMON, a noble Athenian. It is a pretty mocking of the life. Here is a touch; is't good? POET. I'll say of it, It tutors nature: artificial strife Lives in these touches, livelier than life. How this lord is followed! POET. The senators of Athens: happy man! PAINTER.

William Shakespeare, 1564 - 1616 Although there are many myths and mysteries surrounding William Shakespeare, a great deal is actually known about his life. He was born in Stratford-Upon-Avon, son of John Shakespeare, a prosperous merchant and local politician and Mary Arden, who had the wealth to send their oldest son to Stratford Grammar School. At 18, Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway, the 27-year-old daughter of a local farmer, and they had their first daughter six months later.

  • I recently read through the complete works of Shakespeare and Timon of Athens was my surprise favorite. I figured it would be one of the less rewarding plays since I rarely hear it referenced, but it turned out to be a delightful premise full of the best Shakespearean insults in the canon. It's a short play and some argue that the ending is left unfinished, but I'm obsessed with it. The Arkangel dramatization no doubt contributing to my positive impression. The entire cast is extremely talented, nailing the timing and executing spot-on delivery. I highly recommend reading this play along with this audio version.

  • Seriously? It's Shakespeare, and Arden. Best combination, despite the fact that this is NOT one of Shakespeare's best. However, it is one of the plays most relevant for contemporary audiences, especially given the economic climate of today. The play, probably written by Shakespeare in collaboration with another playwright (probably Middleton) is choppy and somewhat confusing in parts. It's believed that there are sections missing, and that makes sense when you read the overall play. Read the play for the individual scenes, and the sometimes unintentional humor. It's worth the time, and thought, that Shakespeare requires.

  • I am a huge Shakespeare fan, but I admit Timon of Athens is not his most entertaining read. The story follows the tragic downfall of the wealthy, powerful, generous Timon, as his financial collapse drives him to madness. The story is very depressing, but it is very insightful with powerful character development.

  • Almost unreadable in Kindle. Formatting is terrible. Not even worth 99 cents

  • Not the play . . . my issue is with the edition. For that price, I assumed, hoped, that I was getting a used standard size issue, not this pocket edition with small text. There was nothing in the ad to indicate edition size, and if you're reading on stage, this is too small. Disappointed!

  • The play is fine, but this Kindle edition is horrible. The blank-verse lines are rendered as run-on sentences with no breaks between them. There is no differentiation in the font or typeface between the name of the character speaking and what they are saying so it's very confusing. It contains many, many errors.. After wasting $.99 on the Kindle edition, I found far superior free versions on-line, so save your money or buy a hard copy.

  • Apparently a direct transcription of the physical book's text, the Kindle edition of this play is very poorly formatted. Line-breaks are muddled and the editorial notes get mixed up in the play-text proper. Very disappointed that Pelican would do this -- I imagine they simply wanted an easy way onto the ebook market and didn't think about the mechanics of what they were doing at all. If you need electronic Shakespeare, get it somewhere else.

  • Used book. Pages just a bit darker than new. Clean book, no markings whatever. Very good item for the price.
