This edition in The Oxford Shakespeare is the first full edition to identify the play as a collaboration between Shakespeare and Thomas Middleton. In his Introduction John Jowett explains how the play’s loose ends and uneven writing arise from this collaboration, and he provides the fullest account of the play’s performance history available.

Timon of Athens is a bitterly intriguing study of a fabulously rich man who wastes his wealth on his friends, and, when he is finally impoverished, learns to despise humanity with a hatred that drives him to his grave. The play’s plot structure is schematically clear, and the poetry of Timon’s rage is arresting in its savage intensity. Yet readers have often detected loose ends, and the tone of writing is uneven. In his introduction, John Jowett explains how these characteristics arise because the play was written as a collaboration between Shakespeare and Thomas Middleton. This edition pays full justice to Middleton’s presence, explaining how his contribution gave the play its distinctive edge. Readers need to read this play as a dialogue between writers of different temperaments, and this edition is the first to make such a reading possible.
The introduction provides the fullest account of the play’s performance history available. The commentary is the most detailed ever to have been published. Appendices include source materials and a listing of major productions worldwide.
