Course description

History - Shakespeare vs. History - Antony and Cleopatra: This course will allow you to explore the truth and the fiction surrounding this renowned Roman general and Egyptian Queen and the events leading up to their deaths. We will compare ShakespeareÆs Antony with the Antony as described by his contemporaries like Cicero (and more modern biographers) and look at their roles as leaders and lovers in an attempt to assess whether or not their legendary reputation is deserved. We will also look, as Shakespeare does, at the wider political situation as the Roman Republic transitions to imperial rule, with particular attention to the role of Octavian who would become the emperor Augustus afterwards. By evaluating primary evidence as well as modern historical analysis of this period, you will be able to challenge common interpretations and possible misconceptions about these fabled events in ancient history., , At the end of this course, you should be able to:, Explain the importance of Egypt politically and commercially in the late 1st century BC, Discuss various representations of Antony and Cleopatra throughout history, Evaluate reasons for the conflict between Octavian and Antony and Cleopatra, Describe the consequences of OctavianÆs victory for Rome, Egypt and the Mediterranean world , , Richard Marsden is a classicist, linguist and amateur historian who has been tutoring History and Latin courses for Kent Adult Education for 9 years,
