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 The Romantics, on the other hand were almost pathetically eager to snuggle up close to you and tell you all about their inner lives Only far from land , far from the paddling little insecurities individual humans and out amid the mightily currents of history and the world , can stories find the room and energy they need to become true.While my teenage mind is still developing I decide to give this book a read , and of course it is not at all the kind of book i m capable of understanding without several patient hands, then I was hesitating on whether to post this or not as I know there are people on this forum that are muchhighly knowledgeable in Shakespeare than myself Shakespeare description of Cleopatra s charms lay not in her looks, the attraction of her person, joining with the charm of her conversation and the character that attended all she said or did , was something bewitching, a complex and changeable character that has been subject to a multiplicity of interpretation Her beauty was not so passing as unmatchable of other women nor yet such as upon present view did enamor men with her but so sweet was her company and conversation that a man could not possibly but be taken. Age cannot wither her, nor custom staleher infinite variety He also gave the man , with all his contradiction , staring at the pages and lost to the world, he would excel in his life if he had control over his impulses, he let his passions carry him easily back to the old course of life that was familiar to him His fortunes sinks most lamentably , had he been what he knew himself, it had gone well.The battle between love and war , desire and duty , the personal and political is at the heart of Antony and Cleopatra, great sentences recede beneath the greater whole , so it is hard to mine out the brightest nuggets in so rich in vein , Shakespeare wrote matchlessly and moved between abortively blunt, common dialog and high flown daring and transcendent passages, he could keenly observe the passage of man through the world and there is a wealth of social satire and psychological accuracy.The splendid variety of words long with each world s creative possibilities, lift our incessant babbling into a heavenly height that almost reaches the rafters of human experience.We can feel that one is dealing with men and women there one hates and loves, there one murders one s enemy and curses his issue through all generations there one sinsA pair so famous High events as these Strike those that make them and their story is No less in pity than his glory whichBrought them to be lamented.

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 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 them.Honestly, 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 rugthan the actual revolving scenes and action.This isn t quite true for the unfurling of the real tragedy, however I did love that as much as I had remembered.But 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 scholar.Still, not dead, not dead. Give me my robe, put on my crown I have Immortal longings in meWilliam 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 needsthan 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 Enobarbus.Favorite LinesIn time we hate that which we often fearAct I, Scene 3WE, ignorant of ourselves,Beg often our own harms, which the wise powersDeny us for our good so find we profitBy losin gof our prayersAct II, Scene 1The Barge she sat in, like a burnished throwne,Burned on the waterAct II, Scene 2And for his ordinary pays his heartFor what his eyes eat onlyAct II, Scene 2Good madam, keep yourself within yourselfAct II, Scene 5The breaking of so great a thing should makeA greater crack the round worldShould have shook lions into civil streets,And citizens to their densAct V, Scene 1 Shakespeare at his best. 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, the Cydnus now called Berdan on a large barge , all that sparkling opulence the purple sails, silver oars, golden canopy under which the queen 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 queen 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 B.C 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 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 neverindistinguishably 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 characterization of the protagonists all thean 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 equal nobleness and desperation, worthy ofA Roman, by a Roman Valiantly vanquished , instead of the humiliated hero Cleopatramight 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 acquire 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 AnthonyShe 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 Ages.And 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 coming.Whatever 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.
