Summary
  • William Shakespeare's great Roman tragedy of passion and political conflict is now available in a richly documented and illustrated Norton Critical Edition. This edition of Antony and Cleopatra is based on the First Folio (1623), the only authoritative text of the play. The volume includes a preface, detailed explanatory annotations of the text, two maps, and visuals ranging from a silver tetradrachm (34 ace) to contemporary artwork inspired by the play
  • "Criticism" includes seventeen carefully chosen pieces representing four centuries of interpretation. These range from the observations of Samuel Johnson, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Hazlitt, and Anna Brownell Jameson, to recent essays by, among others, Jonathan Gil Harris, Patricia Parker, Kim Hall, and Ania Loomba
  • "Adaptations, Rewritings, and Appropriations" presents a range of creative work that both is inspired by Shakespeare's play and offers us alternative interpretations of the Antony and Cleopatra story. These include John Dryden's All for Love; a burlesque by F.C. Burnand; poems by Robert Louis Stevenson, Ted Hughes, and Barbara Chase-Riboud; a famous Arabic play by Ahmad Shawqi; and a recent art installation from India. --Book Jacket
