The Tragedy of Antony and Cleopatra (Signet Classic Shakespeare)by William Shakespeare
Synopses & Reviews
A magnificent drama of love and war, this riveting tragedy presents one of Shakespeare's greatest female characters—the seductive, cunning Egyptian queen Cleopatra. The Roman leader Mark Antony, a virtual prisoner of his passion for her, is a man torn between pleasure and virtue, between sensual indolence and duty . . . between an empire and love. Bold, rich, and splendid in its setting and emotions, Antony And Cleopatra ranks among Shakespeare's supreme achievements.
This reissue of this popular Shakespeare classic features a New Overview of Shakespeare's works by Sylvan Barnet, former Chairman of the English Department at Tufts University; an updated bibliography; suggested references; and stage and film history.
