Overview

Includes an overview of Shakespeare’s life; commentary by Samuel Johnson, A.C. Bradley, and others; a stage and screen history; and more

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.
