Antony and Cleopatra

by William Shakespeare — eBook

“Antony and Cleopatra” is a play by William Shakespeare that tells the story of the relationship between Mark Antony, one of the three rulers of the Roman Republic, and Cleopatra, the queen of Egypt. The play explores themes of love, politics, power, and betrayal, and it is set against the backdrop of the political turmoil in the Roman Republic. The play begins with Antony dividing his time between Rome and Egypt, where he is deeply in love with Cleopatra, but is also torn between his duty to Rome and his love for her. Ultimately, Antony’s love for Cleopatra leads to his downfall, as he is defeated in battle by Octavius Caesar, one of his fellow rulers in Rome. The play ends with the deaths of Antony and Cleopatra, who both commit suicide rather than be captured by Octavius.

About this Book

From Wikipedia: Antony and Cleopatra (First Folio title: The Tragedie of Anthonie, and Cleopatra) is a tragedy by William Shakespeare. The play was first performed, by the King’s Men, at either the Blackfriars Theatre or the Globe Theatre in around 1607; its first appearance in print was in the Folio of 1623.

The plot is based on Thomas North’s 1579 English translation of Plutarch’s Lives (in Ancient Greek) and follows the relationship between Cleopatra and Mark Antony from the time of the Sicilian revolt to Cleopatra’s suicide during the War of Actium. The main antagonist is Octavius Caesar, one of Antony’s fellow triumvirs of the Second Triumvirate and the first emperor of the Roman Empire. The tragedy is mainly set in the Roman Republic and Ptolemaic Egypt and is characterized by swift shifts in geographical location and linguistic register as it alternates between sensual, imaginative Alexandria and a more pragmatic, austere Rome.

Many consider Shakespeare’s Cleopatra, whom Enobarbus describes as having “infinite variety”, as one of the most complex and fully developed female characters in the playwright’s body of work.: p.45 She is frequently vain and histrionic enough to provoke an audience almost to scorn; at the same time, Shakespeare invests her and Antony with tragic grandeur. These contradictory features have led to famously divided critical responses. It is difficult to classify Antony and Cleopatra as belonging to a single genre. It can be described as a history play (though it does not completely adhere to historical accounts), as a tragedy (though not completely in Aristotelian terms), as a comedy, as a romance, and according to some critics, such as McCarter,[5] a problem play. All that can be said with certainty is that it is a Roman play, and perhaps even a sequel to another of Shakespeare’s tragedies, Julius Caesar.
