Holland's edition offers an idiosyncratic and entertaining version of Coriolanus that is suited to a play that poses relatively few textual problems, demonstrating that even a play that only exists in one early witness is reproduced differently in each edition, performance and re-reading ... The edition is a triumph of careful work, and testament to the importance of aligning theatrical, linguistic and historical approaches in the careful preparation of an edition. -- Peter Kirwan, UK * Editionen in der Kritik *
This is a rich and creatively suggestive Coriolanus edition that does justice to the play as product of a complex social, stage, and literary history and as an equally complex cultural performance text. -- Barbara Correll, Cornell University, USA * Archiv fur das Studium der neueren Sprachen und Literaturen *
Great introduction - strong on political context and topicality, and great treatment of the new Fiennes movie adaptation. The best modern edition of Coriolanus on the market. -- Matthew Woodcock, University of East Anglia, UK
