    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 starsetc to the most modern sounding most casual and wittiest dialogue of Shakespeare's career Part of it is the larger than life characterization which transforms each vicious and pathetic absurdity into a privilege of the lovers' protean magnificence as undeniable and unuestionable as the sovreign acts of Olympian gods Whatever the reason this play makes me laugh and cry and leaves me with a deep spiritual reverence for the possibilities of the human heartI wrote the paragraph above two and a half years ago and it still reflects my opinion of the play This time through though I was particularly struck by how much the voices of the military subordinates and servants Enobarbus and Charmion Ventidius and Alexis and many others including even unnamed messengers and soldiers contribute to this double movement of the ironic and heroic celebrating the leaders' mythic ualities but also commenting on their great flaws Enobarbus with his loyal albeit amused appreciation his disillusioned betrayal and his subseuent death from what can best be described as a broken heart is central to this aspect of the play

    The Tragedie of Antony and Cleopatra Antony and Cleopatra William Shakespeare The plot is based on Thomas North's translation of Plutarch's Lives and follows the relationship between Cleopatra and Mark Antony from the time of the Sicilian revolt to Cleopatra's suicide during the Final War of the Roman Republic The major antagonist is Octavius Caesar one of Antony's fellow triumvirs of the Second Triumvirate and the first emperor of the Roman Empire The tragedy is mainly set in Rome and Egypt and is characterized by swift shifts in geographical location and linguistic register as it alternates between sensual imaginative Alexandria and a pragmatic austere Romeتاریخ نخستین خوانش ماه جولای سال 1984 میلادیعنوان آنتونی و کلئوپاترا؛ نویسنده ویلیام شکسپیر؛ مترجم علاالدین پازارگادی؛ نمایشنامه غم انگیز آنتونی و کلئوپاترا؛ تهران، بنگاه ترجمه، 1334؛ چاپ دیگر 1359؛ چاپ دیگر تهران، علمی فرهنگی، 1379، در 245ص؛ شابک 9789644452581؛ چاپ هفتم 1392؛ موضوع نمایشنامه های نویسندگان انگلیسی سده 16معنوان آنتونی و کلئوپاترا؛ نویسنده ویلیام شکسپیر؛ مترجم محمدعلی اسلامی ندوشن؛ تهران، یزدان، 1363؛ در 238ص؛ عنوان آنتونی و کلئوپاترا؛ نویسنده ویلیام شکسپیر؛ مترجم هادی عادلپور؛ تهران، سمیر، 1392؛ در 527ص؛ شابک 9789642201068؛ عنوان آنتونی و کلئوپاترا؛ نویسنده ویلیام شکسپیر؛ مترجم فرینوش رمضانی؛ تهران، نشر مرکز، 1393؛ در 58ص؛ شابک 9789642131655؛ آنتونیوس و کلئوپاترا، نمایشنامه‌ ای عاشقانه، و تراژیک، اثر «ویلیام شکسپیر» است؛ این نمایشنامه، «آنتونی» سردار بزرگ رومی را، همچون عاشق دلباخته‌ ای تصویر می‌کند، که آنچنان در دام عشق «کلئوپاترا»، ملکه ی مصر، اسیر گشته، که «سلطنت»، و «لشکرکشی»، و مسئولیت‌های دیگر خود را، در مقام سرداری رمی، به هیچ می‌شمارد؛ اگرچه نخست برای سازش با همکار خود «قیصر اکتاویوس»، به روم بازمیگردد، و با خواهر او ازدواج میکند، اما عشق کلئوپاترا، بار دیگر باعث می‌شود، که همه چیز را ترک کند، و دوباره به مصر بازگردد؛ رقابت سیاسی بین دو سردار رومی، منجر به جنگ می‌شود، و آنتونی شکست می‌خورد، و خودکشی می‌کند؛ کلئوپاترا هم پس از مرگ دلداده ی خود، برای اینکه او را در رکاب «قیصر اکتاویوس»، به اسارت، به روم نبرند، دست به خودکشی می‌زند؛ ا شربیانی

    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 conuests 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 ueen Cleopatra v11 Greek in blood little of it Egyptian in what is now modern Turkey she dazzled him floating down a river the Cydnus now called Berdan on a large barge all that sparkling opulence the purple sails silver oars golden canopy under which the ueen lies dressed like a Greek goddess the perfumed vessel's delicious aroma spread by the gentle wind crossing the waters to its banks crowds gather the music plays everyone hears lovesawed and fascinated at the spectacular sight Not a beauty no Elizabeth Taylorwhat she lacked physically the temptress made up by her intelligence speaking at least seven languages today the monarch of the Nile would be called an intellectual Cleopatra's main interest was preserving the independence of her beloved ancient Egypt she gave it all Nevertheless the ueen who became his fifth wife her third husband having married her two younger brothers previously must of realized Mark was no Caesar his adopted son biologically grand nephew Octavian soon to be called Augustus Caesar was the closest to Julius in ability if not a good military leader which men would trust and follow into deadly battle But he choose well his generals and admirals the massive sea battle of Actium off the coast of Greece September 2 31 BC over 500 ships and many thousands of crewmen fought and died proved it The final struggle the inevitable contest to be the supreme leader of the Roman world came and the winner well you can read the results in a history book or see a film Shakespeare's poetry makes a tragedy come to life the magic continues in the words page after page the sentences wonderfully connect the emotions and fears grip the reader we may know the outcome still the interest never evaporates the facts are not important the enchantment is Antony and Cleopatra were buried in the same tomb now lost and unknown near Alexandria when the desert winds blew the shifted sands flowed into the air and came down again covering all the memory of man is short

    Shakespeare does it againHe 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 fusedThe fact that the Bard brings forth his masterful descriptive skills almost avoiding the use of the solilouy his trump car and most employed device to create poignant psychological portraits makes the characterization of the protagonists all the an astonishing feat Because Anthony Cleopatra and Octavius are presented as contradictory individuals whose passions represent public symbols in the realm of political machinations and the burden of their pressing responsibilities eschews easy stereotyping Anthony is a man of action with grand aspirations He attempts to rationalize his ardent love for Cleopatra and capitulates to his ancestry acting like a uniting bridge between the Roman and the Egyptian values His ultimate self sacrifice in front of Caesar’s hegemony after his boundless desire has overpowered his warrior’s ambition is an act of eual nobleness and desperation worthy of “A Roman by a Roman; Valiantly vanuished” instead of the humiliated hero Cleopatra might easily be the most complex and thought provoking of Shakespeare’s female characters which is denoted in the unusually poetic allegoric language she employs She refers to herself as the “Nile” and her words acuire a particular cadence that could be associated with water What a better metaphorical antithesis for the classical notion of fixed and stable identity? For Cleopatra embodies such radical “otherness” such histrionic voluptuousness capricious and dangerously tantalizing that in her converges the exoticism of the “Eastern” mysteries that both repel and attract the self restrained Roman leaders first Julius Caesar and then Marc Anthony “She shall be buried with Anthony No grave upon earth shall clip in itA pair so famous High events as theseStrike those that make them; and their story isNo less in pity than his glory whichBrought them to be lamented”Such is the tribute Octavius pays to his rival displaying a remarkable empathy that bespeaks of the Emperor’s unwavering sense of justice Anthony and Cleopatra’s surrender anticipates the end of an era the dissolution of Egypt as a powerful opponent to the Roman Empire and the beginning of unrestful times precluding the expansion of Christianity and posterior entrance into the obscure Middle AgesAnd so again the reader is left wondering whether Shakespeare was writing a love tragedy a historical play with a rather anti climatic conclusion or a nostalgic elegy to a splendorous past that saw its end comingWhatever the case I envision joyful times ahead trying to figure out Shakespeare’s teasing riddles and contradicting myself as I change perspectives throughout my life Few things are so comforting like such thought Few things are this precious

    Book Review 4 out of 5 stars to Antony and Cleopatra a play published in 1606 by William ShakespeareThis 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 ueen of Egypt Caeser is conuering 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 Misunderstood messages Betrayal Hatred Anger Love It's a reflection on all the human emotions wondering why we are tested at so many points in our lives Where does a man's heart lie? How honest is the woman he loves? Can you trust your own staff? Time tested uestions we've faced for nearly 400 years since this was written but also the thousands of years before it This one had a bit of everything and was one of the easily understood plays It tugs a little at your emotions while pushing you to root for the right people And if you are a history buff it makes it all that much enjoyable About Me For those new to me or my reviews here's the scoop I read A LOT I write A LOT And now I blog A LOT First the book review goes on Goodreads and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at where you'll also find TV Film reviews the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I've visited all over the world And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the whowhatwhenwhere and my pictures Leave a comment and let me know what you think Vote in the poll and ratings Thanks for stopping by

    Mark Antony is a real pain in the asp

    I wish you all the joys of the wormYou 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 BansheesIndeed Let Rome in Tiber melt I really enjoyed the triumvirate of powers the play on politics and the whole chaos of such an eual footing between Ceasar Antony and Cleopatra Can we blame the woman? Should we rather blame the man? Could it just be the ego and pride of Ceasar we should point a finger at? The whole world was at all of their feet and yet all of their egos were too big for the Earth to hold themHonestly the first portion of the play was easily the worst and I didn't love it nearly as much as my first reading Rather I enjoyed the play of words and the references to the classic legends surrounding Cleopatra and the rug than the actual revolving scenes and actionThis isn't uite true for the unfurling of the real tragedy however I did love that as much as I had rememberedBut I can't in all fairness keep the last star just for the strength of the end so I struck it I let Eros be my scholarStill not dead not dead

    “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 love story even before Shakespeare was destined for myth But Shaksepeare makes us both root for their survival and their love even as we know the dark worm turns the golden snake bites and opportunism and luck eventually both come to an abrubt and tragic end Even with ALL of that there isn't enough in this play for me to launch it into the highest Shakespearean orbit I think part of this blame lies with me I think I need to spend MORE time with the play I think there are textures and shades that I missed This play needs than days it needs and demands like Cleopatra and Antony attention So perhaps I am giving too short of a stick to this play I can buy that I should also mention beyond Antony and Cleopatra and perhaps Caesar Augustus the best lines of this play all come from EnobarbusFavorite Lines “In time we hate that which we often fear” Act I Scene 3 WE ignorant of ourselvesBeg often our own harms which the wise powersDeny us for our good; so find we profitBy losin gof our prayers Act II Scene 1 The Barge she sat in like a burnished throwneBurned on the water Act II Scene 2 And for his ordinary pays his heartFor what his eyes eat only Act II Scene 2 Good madam keep yourself within yourself Act II Scene 5 “The breaking of so great a thing should makeA greater crack the round worldShould have shook lions into civil streetsAnd citizens to their dens” Act V Scene 1

    I don’t think I’m gonna write a very articulate review for this one I enjoyed it and it’s a good play but it lacks a little something I just couldn’t connect with the characters as much and the whole plot line just wasn’t my fav which is super disappointing since this was the play that I was most excited to read czhellooooo we have arabs in here yay The writing is of course amazing but for some reason this just fell flat for me shrugs Next up The Winter’s Tale🤞🏼
