Thr play's conflict is political in nature, the class conflict between commoners (Roman plebeians) and aristocrats (patricians). In addition, Shakespeare explores the main characters psychologically; their motivations-a subject often focused on the nature of Coriolanus's relationship with his mother, Volumnia.
