Advertisement for Serentil by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals. This kind of gift-giving was outlawed the same year it was released, by the federal Anti Kick-Back Statute to reduce fraud and malpractice. These albums select a Shakespearean character that they contest would have the condition that the medication would treat. To help certify the fictional character, they choose a leading psychiatrist (from IL), literary critic (Director of English studies from Philadelphia, and a well-known actor (Quayle) who plays the part of the character. The release is packaged in a thin box and includes a "Dear Doctor" letter, prescribing information, and an 8-page color brochure on Serentil. The back cover text reads: Coriolanus, the play, has been called, "tragedy," "satire," and even "comedy" by literary critics seeking to categorize this later work of Shakespeare's. Coriolanus, the man, provides further fertile, dynamic material for analysis in this panel discussion. The discussants - psychiatrist, literary critic, actor - present their divergent viewpoints in an intense inquiry into the character of Coriolanus. What emerges is an awareness of the play as a psychoanalytic restructuring and interpretation of Coriolanus' life from infancy to death. The relationship with his mother, Volumnia, justifiably receives the most attention because it is crucial to understanding the play's oedipal theme. Relationships with his wife, his enemy, father-surrogate, and the plebeians also are explored in an effort to uncover and explain the tragic flaw in Coriolanus. Clinically, he is revealed as an explosive personality subject to uncontrollable fits of rage and with unremitting self-destructive tendencies. This is the focus of our fourth offering in this intriguing series of recordings brought to you as a service of Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, producers of Serentil (mesoridniazine) - a new, major tranquilizer that reduces anxiety and tension often associated with the psychoneurotic manifestations of many personality disorders.
