Synopsis

Antony and Cleopatra by Macaw Books

Antony and Cleopatra is a brilliant drama of love and war by William Shakespeare. Hailed as one of the master playwright's greatest tragedies, the play is set in ancient Rome and Egypt and portrays actual Roman history. It revolves around its two main characters, Antony, a Roman general, and Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt. Antony falls in love with Cleopatra, and throughout the play remains torn between his duty and his love for her. This short narrative version of the play has been suitably adapted to help introduce the play to young readers. It can be read by children or read to them by parents who wish to introduce them to the play. It can also be used by teachers as a classroom resource. The easy-to-read narration and comic-style illustrations are sure to captivate children's interest and develop their reading skills.
