Close Reading: The Inveighing, Envying Martius in Coriolanus 3.3.94

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

This close reading utilises new evidence to explore the textual crux of Coriolanus 3.3.94: the Folio prints that Coriolanus ‘enui’d against the people’, but modern editors usually prefer to emend the first word to ‘inveighed’. Drawing on both contemporary textual examples and recent research from the history of emotion, I argue that retaining the Folio’s reading may in fact be the wisest editorial choice.
