The Oxford Shakespeare: Anthony and Cleopatra
Anthony and Cleopatra is not only one of Shakespeare’s greatest love stories, but also a powerful political drama. It is among the most poetic of all the high Shakespearean tragedies. Published by Oxford University Press.
This is not only one of the world’s greatest love stories, but also a sweeping political drama of unparalleled force. From the rich vein of comedy that runs through it to the play’s unforgettable ending, it reveals a writer at the height of his powers and confidence. Shakespeare’s incomparable poetry, and his capacity to combine intimate moments with tragic grandeur, give his hero and heroine an irresistible glamour which, for all their flaws, has continued to seduce audiences through the centuries.
