Antony and Cleopatra – Wordsworth Classics (Paperback) William Shakespeare (author), Professor Cedric Watts (author of introduction and notes), Dr Keith Carabine (series editor)

£2.50

Edited, introduced and annotated by Cedric Watts, M.A., Ph.D., Emeritus Professor of English, University of Sussex.

Antony and Cleopatra is one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies: a spectacular, widely-ranging drama of love and war, passion and politics. Antony is divided between the responsibilities of imperial power and the intensities of his sexual relationship with Cleopatra. She, variously generous and ruthless, loving and jealous, petulant and majestic, emerges as Shakespeare’s most complex depiction of a woman:

‘Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale
Her infinite variety.’Unsurpassed in sumptous eloquence and powerful characterisation, Anthony and Cleopatra deservedly retains its popularity in the theatre. Its insights into the corruptions of power and the ambiguities of desire remain timely.

This volume is part of the Wordsworth Classics’ Shakespeare Series, in which each volume has been edited by Cedric Watts.
