About Author

  1. William Shakespeare Cynthia Marshall Barbara A. Mowat Paul Werstinesays:

    William Shakespeare baptised 26 April 1564 was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world s pre eminent dramatist He is often called England s national poet and the Bard of Avon or simply The Bard His surviving works consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems His plays have been translated into every major living language, and are performed often than those of any other playwright.Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford upon Avon Scholars believe that he died on his fifty second birthday, coinciding with St George s Day.At the age of 18 he married Anne Hathaway, who bore him three children Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith Between 1585 and 1592 he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of the playing company the Lord Chamberlain s Men, later known as the King s Men He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later Few records of Shakespeare s private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1590 and 1613 His early plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of sophistication and artistry by the end of the sixteenth century Next he wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608, including Hamlet, King Lear, and Macbeth, considered some of the finest examples in the English language In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights Many of his plays were published in editions of varying quality and accuracy during his lifetime, and in 1623, two of his former theatrical colleagues published the First Folio, a collected edition of his dramatic works that included all but two of the plays now recognised as Shakespeare s.Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day, but his reputation did not rise to its present heights until the nineteenth century The Romantics, in particular, acclaimed Shakespeare s genius, and the Victorians hero worshipped Shakespeare with a reverence that George Bernard Shaw called bardolatry In the twentieth century, his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance His plays remain highly popular today and are consistently performed and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.According to historians, Shakespeare wrote 37 plays and 154 sonnets throughout the span of his life Shakespeare s writing average was 1.5 plays a year since he first started writing in 1589 There have been plays and sonnets attributed to Shakespeare that were not authentically written by the great master of language and literature.

One thought on “Antony and Cleopatra

  1. This play is so good, it is not merely a masterpiece it is a mystery The two protagonists are alternately noble and petty, wise and foolish, and yet they never seem inconsistent or self contradictory because Shakespeare here is the mystery consistently maintains a tone that is paradoxically both ironic and heroic Part of it is the language, which shifts seamlessly from mellifluous monologues adorned with cosmic imagery comparing Anthony and Cleopatra to continents, stars,etc to the most modern s [...]

  2. Mark Antony the Roman general , right hand man of the great Caesar, a shadow to be sure of the most famous ruler of Rome, and his unsurpassed conquests in the history of the Empire , yet he , Antony , had ability, just not enough to overcome his weaknesses Excessive drinking and chasing beautiful women and ignoring his duty, a bit coarse in truth The fatal meeting with Queen Cleopatra v11, Greek in blood, little of it Egyptian, in what is now modern Turkey, she dazzled him floating down a river, [...]

  3. Shakespeare does it again.He mingles the historical with the imaginary, the public with the private, the tragedy with the theatrical to infuse life into one the most popular couples in ancient Rome the star crossed lovers Anthony and Cleopatra Love and war were never indistinguishably fused.The fact that the Bard brings forth his masterful descriptive skills almost avoiding the use of the soliloquy, his trump car and most employed device to create poignant psychological portraits, makes the cha [...]

  4. Book Review4 out of 5 stars to Antony and Cleopatra, a play published in 1606 by William Shakespeare.This is one of my favorite Shakespearean plays, partially for some of the reality on which it is based Some know the full story, others know bits and pieces Cleopatra, famous in her own right, is the Queen of Egypt Caeser is conquering the world Antony rules Rome for a while The love affair between these three, plus a former wife and the sister, Octavia, create such a beautiful and tragic story M [...]

  5. I wish you all the joys of the worm.You know, for the longest time, I had placed this of all of Shakespeare s plays among the highest in my estimation, for where else could I have so many references to melting or even have an early punk band write a song about it Melt, Siouxsie and the Banshees Indeed, Let Rome in Tiber melt I really enjoyed the triumvirate of powers, the play on politics and the whole chaos of such an equal footing between Ceasar, Antony, and Cleopatra Can we blame the woman Sh [...]

  6. Give me my robe, put on my crown I have Immortal longings in me William Shakespeare, Antony and CleopatraA great Shakespeare play, but one for me that is still overpowered by Shakespeare s earlier tragedies The story is based on Plutarch s Lives North s translation The weight and strength of this play is, obviously, going to center on Cleopatra and Antony They are fascinating as a couple literary and political binaries and Cleopatra is amazingly, spectacularly, flushed out by Shakespeare Their l [...]

  7. The dotage of our general sOverflows the measure those his goodly eyesThat o er the files and musters of the warHave glowed like plated Mars, now bend, now turnthe office and devotion of their viewUpon a tawny front His captain s heart,Which in the scuffles of great fights hath burst And is become the bellows and the fan To cool a gipsy s lust.Shakespeare used Plutarch s Parallel of the Greeks and Romans as a source for his play,the play is the thing wherein to catch the conscience of the king T [...]

  9. I read this directly following on from Julius Caesar, expecting of the same Imho however the play isn t in the same class It s lack a certain omph and urgency Even the chemistry between the two protagonists only really gets going, ironically, towards the end.

  11. What does it say about me that I find myself so much in Shakespeare s Antony and Cleopatra More so even than in Hamlet In Cleopatra I see my many shortcomings in love my possessiveness, my jealousies, my need for attention and affection, and most of all the need to have love proven again and again and ultimately these are the foibles which bring about my own destruction in love Like Cleopatra, I think I know my advantages, what angles I look best, where best to drive conversation, what activitie [...]

  12. The Final Saga of the Roman Republic19 May 2012 This is truly a play of epic proportions, taking place in areas from the centre of Rome to her periphery, such as Egypt and the borders of Parthia It is one of Shakespeare s later works, and the skill in which he brings so much together onto the stage simply goes to show how skillful he was at producing drama Now, some scholars like to argue that Shakespeare could not have been responsible for so many plays of such high quality, however I personall [...]

  15. Scholars believe that Shakespeare wrote Antony and Cleopatra in 1606, immediately after Macbeth, and it is one of the last great tragedies that Shakespeare produced The most geographically sweeping of Shakespeare s plays, Antony and Cleopatra s setting is the entire Roman Empire, its backdrop the well documented history of Octavius Caesar, Marc Antony, and Cleopatra Shakespeare s primary source for Antony and Cleopatra was the Life of Marcus Antonius contained in Plutarch s Lives of the Noble Gr [...]

  18. Their celebrity couple name would be AntoPatra.And essentially, that is what Antony and Cleopatra are a celebrity couple And just like the crazy jump on the couch love of TomKat, their affection is subject to deep suspicion and speculation by the public The romance of AntoPatra is often compared with that of Romeo and Juliet in regard to both passion and poetry However, the circumstance of celebrity makes Antony and Cleopatra vastly, sadly different from the star crossed young lovers of Verona I [...]

  20. In many ways this paly can be seen as unconventional regarding the classical rules of drama here the events are not confined to one place, we move back and forth from Alexandria to Rome to Sicily to Athens to Actium and to other places of the old world The time range of events is about ten years, although Shakespeare had also condensed the historical events so that they could be adapted to the play There is not only one main event, everything is so ramified Shakespeare had relied heavily on Plut [...]
