Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff
Cleopatra: A Life

Beffa, January 30, 2013

This extremely well-researched and engagingly-written life of Cleopatra presents a revised portrait of the most powerful woman in her world in her time. One can hope that a movie will follow, to correct the image of vacuousness in which this brilliant, clever, and most powerful entity at the helm of Egypt and surrounding territory is too often shown, and replace it with the savvy, risk-taking and strong leadership that she very really exhibited.
