Our goal is to progressively produce a modern, scholarly, free alternative to the original and public domain original electronic source of the Complete Moby(tm) Shakespeare as well as the magnificent Folger Shakespeare Library.

The text on this site reflects the editorial judgements, organization, layout, and lineation of the pages as found in different editions. The text of our edition is accompanied by "essential" annotations and critical variants, commenting on variations between different versions of the text and that provides an understanding of the text based on other sources.

In any case, we strongly advise our readers to purchase one of the Modern Critical print Editions for the complete critical “apparatus”: notes, critical essays, textual variants, etc.

We take advantage of this occasion to pay warm tribute to the extraordinary work achieved by the editors of the New Oxford Shakespeare - The New Oxford Shakespeare: Complete Set Modern Critical Edition, Critical Reference Edition, Authorship Companion. General Editors: Gary Taylor, John Jowett, Terri Bourus, and Gabriel Egan. Published: 27 April 2017 - ISBN: 9780198791324

MISANTHROPOS

or
The Life of Timon of Athens

A film by Maximianno Cobra

Athens 417B.C.E. Celebrated general and esteemed nobleman Timon of Athens has spent his life and fortune generously bestowing gifts, favours and feasting upon the citizens of Athens, both rich and poor alike. Facing bankruptcy he seeks aid from the many false friends he has adorned with wealth, but as their generosity wains, so too does Timon's patience for the corruption of society.

Adapted by Maximianno Cobra, from Shakespeare's "Timon of Athens", the film exposes the timeless challenge of social hypocrisy, disillusion and annihilation against the poetics of friendship, love and beauty.

Feature Film – Estimated running time: 2hrs 30mins.


Production Status: Post-production

Estimated Release Date: 2025
