書名:Timon of Athens（ISBN=9780521294041）
Karl Klein introduces Shakespeare''s play as a complexexploration of a corrupt, moneyed society, and Timon himself as arich and philanthropic nobleman who is forced to recognize theinherent destructiveness of the Athenian society from which heretreats in disgust and rage. Klein establishes Timon as one ofShakespeare''s late works, arguing that evidence for other authorsis inconclusive. He shows the play to be neither tragedy, satirenor comedy, but a subtle and complete drama whose main characterscontain elements of all three genres.
