Antony and Cleopatra

The Battle of the Sexes

variety and subtlety in the art of persuasion
Variety and subtlety in the art of persuasion
  • Look…see this Herculean Roman does become the carriage of his chafe
  • Riotous madness, to be entangled with those mouth-made vows
  • If you find him sad say I am dancing: if in mirth say I am sudden sick
  • O, never was there queen so mightily betrayed
  • I am quickly ill, and well. So Antony loves
  • I shall fall. It cannot be thus long, the sides of nature will not sustain it.
  • I have no power upon you; hers you are.
  • Now I see, I see in Fulvia’s death, how mine received shall be
  • Good now, play one scene of excellent dissembling and let it look like perfect honour
  • Thou the greatest soldier of the world art turned the greatest liar
what do these mean
What do these mean?
  • Mouth-made vows
  • None our parts so poor but was a race of heaven
  • Eternity was in our lips and eyes
  • Though age from folly could not give me freedom
  • Italy shines o’er with civil swords
  • Equality of two domestic powers breeds scrupulous faction
  • The garboils she awaked
rome s view of antony
Rome’s view of Antony
  • The abstract of all faults that men follow
  • His faults, in him, seem as the spots of heaven, more fiery by night’s blackness
  • His faults…hereditary rather than purchased
  • Our great competitor
  • Give a kingdom for a mirth
  • Reel the streets at noon
  • He fishes, he drinks, he wastes the lamps of night in revel
  • Is not more manlike than Cleopatra
  • Hardly gave audience, or vouchsafed to think he had partners
  • Pawn…experience to …present pleasure and so rebel to judgement

  • How has Pompey’s reputation changed and why?
  • What is happening at sea?
  • Who or what is like a reed in a stream?
  • What extremes did Antony endure when he was a soldier?
  • What evidence is there that Lepidus does not trust Caesar?

Cleopatra Antony
  • Serpent
  • Give me to drink mandragora
  • My Antony
  • Poison
  • A morsel for a monarch
  • He shall have every day a several greeting or I’ll unpeople Egypt
  • My salad days when I was green in judgement, cold in thought
  • How much unlike MA art thou
  • Happy horse to bear the weight of A
  • His speech sticks in my heart
  • For he would shine on those that make their looks by his
  • Brave Antony
