Abstract

This chapter traces the many different and competing interpretations of Shakepseare's play Coriolanus in South Africa, from the 1960s to the present. The chapter attends to the differences in the interpretations of the play from the apartheid to the post-aprtheid periods, and pays particular attention to the fascination the play has held for South African politicians like the former president Thabo Mbeki.
