Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:
"Antony and Cleopatra" dramatizes a major event in world history: the founding of the Roman Empire. The future first emperor, Octavius Caesar (later called Augustus Caesar), cold-bloodedly manipulates other characters and exercises iron control over himself.
At first, he shares power with Mark Antony, Rome s preeminent military leader, and the weaker Lepidus. Caesar needs Antony to fend off other Roman strongmen like Pompey; he even offers his sister Octavia to him as a bride, despite Antony s reputation as a libertine and his past rivalry with Caesar. Once Caesar defeats Pompey, however, he needs no allies. He brings charges against Lepidus, denies Antony his spoils from Pompey s defeat, and seizes cities in the eastern Roman colonies that Antony rules.
The play s emphasis, however, is on those whom Caesar defeats: Antony and his wealthy Egyptian ally, Queen Cleopatra. The play does not sugarcoat Antony and Cleopatra s famous love affair, including her calculated attempts to seduce Antony from his duties and his rage when he thinks she has betrayed him to Caesar. Nonetheless, the lovers find such sensual and emotional satisfaction that Caesar s world conquest seems smaller than what they find in each other.
The authoritative edition of "Antony and Cleopatra" from The Folger Shakespeare Library, the trusted and widely used Shakespeare series for students and general readers, includes:

Textul de pe ultima copertă

In its towering central characters, vast geographical and historical sweep, and its variety of style and mood, 'Anthony and Cleopatra' is perhaps the most ambitious of Shakespear's designs. Yet the degree and nature of its success remain surprisingly contentious, and performances of the play have seldom matched the extravagant expectations of its admirers.

Notă biografică

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was born to John Shakespeare and mother Mary Arden some time in late April 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon. He wrote about 38 plays (the precise number is uncertain), a collection of sonnets and a variety of other poems.

Stanley Wells is the General Editor of the Penguin Shakespeare. He is Emeritus Professor of the University of Birmingham and Chairman of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.
Emrys Jones was formerly Goldsmiths' Professor of English Literature at the University of Oxford. His publications include Scenic Form in Shakespeare, The Origins of Shakespeare, and The New Oxford Book of Sixteenth-Century Verse.
Rene Weis is Professor of English at University College London. He has edited King Lear (Longman) and Henry IV Part 2 (Oxford) and is the author of The Yellow Cross (Penguin). He is currently writing a biography of Shakespeare for John Murray.
