Timon of Athens - 1981 - DVD

"Nor on the beasts themselves, the birds and fishes..."

Choice calls this "a recommended version of a difficult yet interesting play." In his most cynical work, Shakespeare explores money - its virtues and its vices. Timon, a noble Athenian, is wildly extravagent with his inheritance. But as his money runs out, so do the friends who urged his lavishness. Timon loses his mind, then finds another fortune.

Shakespeare is rightly considered the world's greatest playwright for the soaring beauty of his language, for his profound insight into human nature, for the truths he dramatized and for the realism of the characters he created. He was and remains a superb entertainer.

Featuring some of Britain's most distinguished talent, these DVDs are ideal for libraries, educational purposes and continuing personal enjoyment. Ambrose Video, has digitally restored the masters (which are over 20 years old) for the best DVD viewing expereince possible.
