Coriolanus is usually considered Shakespeare's final tragedy, but departs from the norm of the dramatist's tragic works in Its emphasis on politics. Indeed, the two most prominent modern lines of Critical thought concerning Coriolanus relate to its political nature, as a representation of class conflict between commoners (Roman plebeians) and aristocrats (patricians), and to Its psychological exploration of Its principal characters and their motivations-a subject often focused on the nature of Coriolanus's relationship with his mother, Volumnia. A third and related topic of critical interest considers the ethical dimension of the playas an examination of the Virtue of honor in both political and psychological contexts
