Not Hamlet: Meditations on the Frail Position of Women in Drama Summary


"Desire and duty collide in Shakespeare's captivating tragedy of politics, passion and power. Two charismatic leaders, Mark Antony of Rome and Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, are caught in an all-encompassing love that threatens the Empire. Rome will do all it can to pull them apart. Or it will destroy them both. This classic Shakespeare tale is edited by Dame Janet Suzman, making this an authoritative edition. As she says in her new book 'Not Hamlet: Meditations on the Frail Position of Women in Drama' which studies the role of and for women in Shakespeare's canon, Suzman knows this play better than anyone else in the world, having played Cleopatra twice and having now directed the play twice.
