One of Creator/WilliamShakespeare's more obscure and difficult plays, ''Timon of Athens'' is about an overly generous man who becomes a misanthropic hermit after going bankrupt and being cast off by his friends. It is believed to be a collaborative work, with most critics pointing to Thomas Middleton as the co-writer. It has been called Shakespeare's "least loved play."

" The play is inspired by an episode mentioned in Plutarch's ''Literature/ParallelLives'' (precisely ''Life of Antony'') as well as the satire ''Timon the Misanthrope'' by Lucian of Samosata.

* UsedToBeMoreSocial: Timon starts out as the friendliest, most loved man in Athens, but that was until his creditors take all his stuff and his "friends" won't help him out. He is now misanthropic hermit who just wants to be left alone.
