Antony and Cleopatra is a tragedy through William Shakespeare. It used to be first published within the First Folio of 1623.

The plot is predicated on Thomas North's translation of Plutarch's lifetime of Markus Antonius and follows the connection among Cleopatra and Mark Antony from the time of the Parthian conflict to Cleopatra's suicide. the key antagonist is Octavius Caesar, considered one of Antony's fellow triumvirs and the long run first emperor of Rome. The tragedy is a Roman play characterised by way of rapid, panoramic shifts in geographical destinations and in registers, alternating among sensual, innovative Alexandria and the extra pragmatic, austere Rome. Many contemplate the function of Cleopatra during this play some of the most complicated woman roles in Shakespeare's paintings. She is usually useless and histrionic, scary an viewers nearly to scorn; whilst, Shakespeare's efforts make investments either her and Antony with tragic grandeur. those contradictory positive factors have ended in famously divided serious responses.
