Timon of Athens

by: William Shakespeare

Act V, Scenes i-ii

Since leaving Athens, Timon has been ready for full-scale hermit-hood, but no one will leave him alone long enough. Hence he foretells his death, as if dying is the only way he can get these people, who insist on appearing at his cave door to ask him questions, to leave him alone.
