Antony & Cleopatra is a favourite play of many Shakespeare lovers. It is a play about love and power and the conflict between them. It is the tragedy of a great Roman, who is ultimately destroyed because he puts love and pleasure before political responsibilities. Its original text by Shakespeare has been written side by side with a version in Modern English by Walter Saunders.
Walter Saunders is a poet and former teacher of English at schools and universities in South Africa. The series greatly facilitates teaching and learning. The modernized versions enable learners to gain a deeper understanding of the plays and to cope far better with the original texts. It has a proven great success in schools and tertiary institutions as they make Shakespeare as easy to understand as he was in his own day.
