About this Item

338, illus. (some in color), references, bibliography, index, minor sticker residue to DJ and front endpaper. The most fascinating woman in history and how she has been seen through the centuries by dramatists, poets, artists, and filmmakers. Even in her own lifetime Cleopatra VII--the last Queen of Egypt, Julius Caesar's mistress, Antony's partner, Rome's adversary--was twice over a fiction, being reinvented in the propaganda of her enemies as a depraved, alien temptress and in her own self-glamorizing cermonial as a goddess, a universal mother, and a liberator.
