Anthony and Cleopatra (The World’s Classics)

Now to be had in beautiful World’s Classics editions–with handsome, four-color covers and new low prices–The Oxford Shakespeare offers new and authoritative edions of Shakespeare’s plays. In every volume, an introductory essay provides all relevant background information at the side of an appraisal of critical views and the play’s performance history. As well as, the detailed commentaries pay particular attention to the language and staging. These editions are ideal for all readers, whether actors needing stage directions, students desiring comprehensive (yet inobtrusive) notes, or the reader of classic literature returning to the Bard’s timeless writings.
The most formally ambitious and poetically brilliant of Shakespeare’s tragedies, Anthony and Cleopatra could also be one of his most critically contentious plays when it comes to the degree and nature of its success. All the time alert to the play’s theatricality and boldly experimental design, the wide-ranging introduction offers a fresh critical account of the play, exploring its paradoxical remedy of gender and identity in addition to the rich complexity and tensions of its much-loved poetic language. With a generous appendix of Shakespeare’s source materials, this edition also offers a full stage history.
