The Tragedy of Antony and Cleopatra

The Tragedy of Antony and Cleopatra
by William Shakespeare

Publisher: Pennsylvania State University 1998
Number of pages: 130

Description:
The plot follows the relationship between Cleopatra and Mark Antony from the time of the Parthian War to Cleopatra's suicide. The major antagonist is Octavius Caesar, the future first emperor of Rome. The tragedy is a Roman play characterized by swift, panoramic shifts in geographical locations and in registers, alternating between sensual, imaginative Alexandria and the more pragmatic, austere Rome. Many consider the role of Cleopatra in this play one of the most complex female roles in Shakespeare's work.
