Timon of Athens

Though typically categorized as one of Shakespeare's tragedies, Timon of Athens is considered by some scholars to be one of his "problem-plays"--a play that deals with contemporary social problems through the main protagonist, often giving the play a stronger sense of being a dark comedy as opposed to a strict tragedy. Timon of Athens follows the story of Timon, an elderly but wealthy Athenian gentleman who indiscriminately gives away all of his money to those who least deserve it. The ensuing events transform him from generous philanthropist into a jaded misanthrope. Though often derided by some critics for its overall unfinished feel, the play is considered among others to be one of Shakespeare's most profound and radical plays.
