Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:
The Wonder of Shakespeare One who reads a few of Shakespeare's great plays and then the meager story of his life is generally filled with a vague wonder. Here is an unknown country boy, poor and poorly educated according to the standards of his age, who arrives at the great city of London and goes to work at odd jobs in a theater. In a year or two he is associated with scholars and dramatists, the masters of their age, writing plays of kings and clowns, of gentlemen and heroes and noble women, all of whose lives he seems to know by intimate association. In a few years more he leads all that brilliant group of poets and dramatists who have given undying glory to the Age of Elizabeth. Play after play runs from his pen, mighty dramas of human life and character following one another so rapidly that good work seems impossible; yet they stand the test of time, and their poetry is still unrivaled in any language. For all this great work the author apparently cares little, since he makes no attempt to collect or preserve his writings. A thousand scholars have ever since been busy collecting, identifying, classifying the works which this magnificent workman tossed aside so carelessly when he abandoned the drama and retired to his native village. He has a marvelously imaginative and creative mind; but he invents few, if any, new plots or stories. He simply takes an old play or an old poem, makes it over quickly, and lo this old familiar material glows with the deepest thoughts and the tenderest feelings that ennoble our humanity; and each new generation of men finds it more wonderful than the last. How did he do it? That is still an unanswered question and the source of our wonder.

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

Janet Suzman was born in Johannesburg, graduated from the University of Witwatersrand, trained at LAMDA, and was at the RSC for a decade playing many of the heroines and culminating in a memorable Cleopatra. She has since pursued a richly varied career; twice winner of the Evening Standard Best Actress Award, she has also received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations, twice won the Liverpool Echo Best Production Award and the TMA Best Production. She has diversified into occasional directing – beginning with her Johannesburg Othello in 1987 – and now teaches, lectures, writes and returns to acting, when the occasion beckons, with relief.

Recenzii

Antony and Cleopatra is a tragedy, and a fascinating examination of the devious intricascies of politics.
'The play is a wry examination of the wonder and the absurdity of love in middle ages.'
'Shakespeare's Antony is a charismatic leader, a reckless politician and a desperate, lust driven lover, with a touch of a demigod.'
'it combines hard politics with erotic fascination'
Cleopatra's speech in which she mourns for Antony and 'transforms a vainglorious old roue into a god in perhaps the most transcendentally beautiful verse Shakespeare ever wrote.'
'easily Shakespeare's finest historical foray'
'The legendary sex bomb Cleopatra, one of the toughest as well as the most fascinating of Shakespeare's heroines'
'This is a tragedy of love poisoned by politics and politics betrayed for love'
'Shakespeare's tragedy of passion, politics, and performance'
'...after all, this is a play about delusions and illusions, about the love affair between a drama queen and a great warrior who manages to botch everything he touches, including his own death'.
'It's the die-hard lust for life and sheer overblown poetry of its middle aged lovers that makes 'Antony and Cleopatra' the hedonist's favourite tragedy.'
