- William Shakespeare, in Coriolanus (1608), also produced a character very similar to George Minafer. Caius Marcius Coriolanus is a superior man, but as the noted Shakespearean critic Alfred Harbage says of him, his weakness is an inability "to accommodate himself to reality." Insufferable in his pride, he cannot be flexible enough even to try pleasing the Roman populace and its tribunes. He is expelled from Rome. The most influential person in his life is his mother, Volumnia.
