Coriolanus - Act II

Act II

Good den to your worships: more of your conversation would infect my brain.

Coriolanus, the conquering hero, returns to Rome, to the adulation of the masses. But not everyone is quite so enamored of their new hero. Brutus and Sicinius seem to be the ringleaders when it comes to fomenting discontent. By the end of this rather long-winded act they have succeeded in rousing the ire of a mob of citizens and sending them off to overthrow Coriolanus. For whom things are starting to look rather bleak. But I wouldn't count him out just yet.
