Description

A comprehensive demolition of dominant views of Shakespeare's play, arguing instead for a radical revisioning located in postcolonial and feminist theories, to claim this play as the text for our times. A new edition of Kenneth Parker's radical re-reading of Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra, with a completely revised bibliography reflecting the most recent scholarship. The dominant perceptions of Cleopatra as whore or gypsy and Antony as deserter of Rome are not only questioned but challenged with an entirely new set of comprehensive readings based on postcolonial and feminist theories. From this, Parker argues that this, of all Shakespeare's plays, is the text for modern times.
