Shakespeare Unbard, Episode 31: The Infinite Variety of Antony and Cleopatra


Endlessly bewildering, Antony and Cleopatra is, much like Cleopatra herself, a thing of "infinite variety". It leaps around in genre, as if Shakespeare couldn't quite make up his mind. In this episode of Shakespeare Unbard, Joel takes a look at this complex play.

In this episode you'll hear excerpts and clips from:

  • BBC Cymru Wales. Antony and Cleopatra. 2014.

  • Shakespeare, William. The Tragedy of Macbeth. The Riverside Shakespeare, Houghton and Mifflin, 1974.
