A tragedy of love and duty. Antony & Cleopatra written around 1606 is one of Shakespeare’s great historical love stories. Antony is captivated by Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt. Gossip and scandal leads to plots of murder and battles.
This one was very close to being “Romeo and Juliet” part 2 because in the end it was the same play with the characters having different names. This play truly shows that love and politics doesn’t fit in together.
The plot of this play was love, politics and murder which really was so uninteresting and to be honest this one might be the worst play ever written. The entire plot is very over dramatic and really it just was part 2 to Romeo and Juliet.
There are too many characters in this play to keep track of. And really all of them were super annoying and boring. To be fully honest here all of the characters here felt like the same person but dressed differently.
The writing style here was probably the best thing in this play because it gave the William Shakespeare vibes with the poetic language but that just all and there isn’t much else to say.
I Give Play 1 / 5
