KEY LITERARY ELEMENTS

SETTING

All the action, in the beginning of the play, takes place in the city of Athens. The scenes in Act I take place in Timonís hall, which is not a manís dwelling but a room meant for enjoyment and merrymaking. Parts of Act II and III, which constitute a major part of the play, takes place at the house of the Senators. Timonís servant comes to the Senators and asks for help for his master. Alcibiades too goes to the Senators, to plead for the release of a friend, who has been condemned to death for murder. In the last two acts of the play, the setting shifts to the woods near Athens, where Timon has settled down after losing everything in Athens. The play ends at the boundary of the city, around the gates of Athens, where the Senators surrender to Alcibiades.
