Unique and Magnificent Story
April 2, 2011
The story of course is a familiar one. Cleopatra, Caesar, and Mark Anthony are characters in many stories and plays. The history of Rome and the Roman Empire are also well studied because of their central place in the history of the entire world. But in Cleopatra: A Life, the reader is able to glimpse Alexandria and the life that a royal princess would have. Cleopatra is a resourceful, powerful, and canny person even at a young age. Her meeting with Caesar still strikes the reader as an amazing act. As she matures, the world stage also grows, and the book allows us to see how these ancient empires reacted with each other.
