All > Library Builders > CLASSICS SERIES > > Antony and Cleopatra

In this Shakespearean tragedy, the great Mark Antony must choose between his duty to the Roman Empire and his decadent life with Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt. When Pompey's forces continue to grow in strength during Antony's absence from Rome, the other members of the triumvirate, Octavius Caesar and Lepidus, urge for Anthony's return from Egypt. Upon his return, Antony and Octavius argue, and it is soon decided that Antony will marry Octavius's sister in order to solidify their loyalty to one another and to Rome. When Antony later returns to Egypt and Cleopatra, the alliance is broken and war breaks out between these two proud men. ~ Enh
