Product Description

About the Author

William Shakespeare was born in April 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, on England s Avon River. When he was eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. The couple had three children an older daughter Susanna and twins, Judith and Hamnet. Hamnet, Shakespeare s only son, died in childhood. The bulk of Shakespeare s working life was spent in the theater world of London, where he established himself professionally by the early 1590s. He enjoyed success not only as a playwright and poet, but also as an actor and shareholder in an acting company. Although some think that sometime between 1610 and 1613 Shakespeare retired from the theater and returned home to Stratford, where he died in 1616, others believe that he may have continued to work in London until close to his death.

This version of Antony and Cleopatra isn't worth getting. There is no font size setting on my Kindle - admittedly a somewhat older model - which presents the text lines. If you like poetry, this is so disappointing that it's disqualifying. If you don't like poetry, then the absence of lines might not bother you. But if you don't like poetry, reading Shakespeare is probably something of a challenge and you'll find the text harder to read and understand. So even though it's inexpensive, I'd recommend a different version of the play. It is a great play, so it's a pity it's presented so poorly here.

HASH(0xa1b996cc) out of 5 stars Excellent dramatization of one of Shakespeare's best Sept. 6 2006
By B. Howe - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I have just finished listening to Antony and Cleopatra and cannot speak highly enough of this fine recording. The acting is as good or better than any of the stage productions I've seen and the scenes between Antony and Cleopatra crackle with sensuality (although I did wonder how they make the kissing sounds). This is the first of this series I've listened to, but I plan to go through the entire library if this is representative of the overall quality.

HASH(0xa16c87b0) out of 5 stars A great dramatization with one little problem May 12 2013
By The Reviewer Formerly Known as Kurt Johnson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This set of three CDs contains a really great dramatization of Shakespeare's classic play, Antony and Cleopatra. Arkangel brought together a battery of great actors (including Ciaran Hinds(!) and David Burke), who really brought the story to life. My one and only complaint is that they story is produced straight out of the book - which means that there is very little introduction of the cast of characters or of the scenes. When you read the play, you see the scene described and the characters listed, and when you see the play performed you see the scenery and see the faces of the actors. But, in this purely audio play you have to get to know the characters from their voices alone, and sometimes it is a little hard to imagine where the action is actually taking place.

But, in spite of that little problem, I really did enjoy the play and had little problem following the broad outline of what was happening to whom and why. Yep, I found this to be a very enjoyable dramatization, and I do not hesitate to recommend it!

HASH(0xa0c7c5dc) out of 5 stars Age cannot wither her March 15 2011
By EA Solinas - Published on
Format: Paperback
In the history of femme fatales, Cleopatra is still the queen -- she wasn't pretty, but she had charm, wit and power.

And she's the center of Shakespeare's "Antony and Cleopatra," a play that follows the tragic affair between Cleopatra and her second high-profile Roman lover. The tragedy is undermined by the fact that Cleopatra and Antony aren't very likable people, but the story does have an empire-ending grandeur.

Mark Antony has been neglecting his duties as a Roman soldier ever since he fell in love with the Egyptian queen Cleopatra. But eventually Octavian calls him back to Rome, and Antony is even pressured into marrying Octavia's sister -- which unsurprisingly throws a wrench into his relationship with Cleopatra. She's only soothed by the assurances that Octavia is ugly.

In the meantime, tensions between the Romans and the increasingly Egyptophilic Antony are getting worse, until finally they break into full-out war -- despite the prophecy that Antony will lose if he fights Octavian. And the tempestuous love between Cleopatra and Antony takes a terrible turn as Egypt is about to fall...

"Antony and Cleopatra" is sort of a sequel to "Julius Caesar," and it's also half epic romance and half tragedy. On one hand, it's all about the passionate, stormy love affair between Antony and Cleopatra; on the other, it's also about the final crash of an empire that had endured for thousands of years, and its last monarch.

Shakespeare manages to fill the story with a sense of epic grandeur, and his writing really gets across that these conflicts and people are deeply important. Aside from the famous "Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale/her infinite variety" speech, there's a lot of powerful writing in here, particularly the climactic scene between Cleopatra and her maidservants.

The biggest drawback of the play is... well, Antony and Cleopatra are pretty nasty people. Antony is no longer the heroic Roman soldier of "Julius Caesar," and Cleopatra throws bratty tantrums and spreads false rumors to keep her boyfriend in love with her. They're a little like A-list celebrities -- they're weirdly fascinating, but you wouldn't want them as friends.

"Antony and Cleopatra" is a grand, engaging epic about how a love affair helped bring down the last remnants of an empire, and its nasty characters don't stop it from being fascinating.

HASH(0xa0c7acd8) out of 5 stars Antony and Cleopatra - Dramatization. Jan. 1 2014

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I recommend buying this audio drama. This is a faithful reproduction of the classic. The music and interpretation was faithful. It is a bit annoying that that Cleopatra was a shrewish and weak.

Maybe someone else will have better luck but when I downloaded this it was one blank page. It was free so I can't complain much. Just wanted to give a heads up to everybody.
