This here play is typical since it is a rewriting of Shakespeare's play Anthony and Cleopatra. We can maybe see in the attempt to unify the tone and genre by getting rid of any witty comic scene of any kind an influence from the classical drama in France at that time and their famous unities of place, time and subject. This version of this drama is more intensely centered on the love and friendship Antony may have experienced in his position and less on Cleopatra per se and her own world.
Cleopatra is clearly set in contrast if not opposition with Octavia, Antony's wife, but that does not really bring any more light of any type to Cleopatra. She appears as being a calculating lover who is ready to do anything to retain her Antony. Antony on the other side is shown as a rather weak man who is divided between doing what is right for Rome and being faithful to his love and at the same time to his friends. He is thus manipulated to the utmost by Cleopatra who plays the jealous competition game and by Dolabella who takes advantage of this jealous game to get Cleopatra for himself.Read more ›
