Want to know where Coriolanus is set? Shakespeare set Coriolanus in two powerful ancient cities, Rome and Antium, the Volscian capitol. He sets the play here because he is presenting the hero, Coriolanus, divided between these two centres of power and what drama results from that. The main idea of the play is this tug of war of power that exists between these two peoples, and the huge amount that is at stake.
