Cleopatra

Cleopatra by Georg Ebers

Cleopatra by Georg Ebers

The world knows the fate of the classic lovers Cleopatra and Mark Antony, so there is no need to announce a spoiler alert. Georg Ebers was a German Egyptologist who deftly applied his comprehensive knowledge of Rome and Egypt into a fictionalized account of the ill-fated romance between the Egyptian Queen and her Roman lover Mark Antony.

All for Love

All for Love by John Dryden

All for Love by John Dryden

All for Love is widely considered to be John Dryden’s finest work, dramatic or otherwise. A tragedy written in blank verse, it retells the story of Roman general Marc Antony’s love affair with the alluring Egyptian queen Cleopatra and their eventual double-suicide. Compared to the more famous rendition of the tale by William Shakespeare, however, which is grand and hectic in terms of setting, Dryden chooses instead to focus in on the lovers’ last days in Alexandria as the threat of their defeat looms and their legacies are contested. The result is a swelling, elegant, emotional drama that perceptively considers such themes as loyalty and love, fidelity in marriage, the lasting endurance of friendship, and even the tenuous construct of masculinity. In short, it’s truly a gem of the Restoration repertoire.

This story is fiction. I think I am obligated to lead with that. Any similarities to people and
events in real life are purely coincidental. If you have to ask ‘what is real life,’ you’re on a
different playing field and likely not to have any concord to anything I convey. In that case, have
fun. Though there are characters within that may resemble real people, I assure you they are not
those people. They are not ghosts of those people. At least, we hope not. I’m open, but not
claiming that. What happens in here is contained within a certain practice of meditation, in a
concentrated daydream aka trance state, and so strictly from the context of an internal,
psychological phenomena, the measure is not in determining what’s real or what’s not, what’s
metaphor and what’s not, but in determining degrees improved functionality post experience;
discovering personal truths, insight, and finding peace is the only goal. Jung recommends not
doing that during the experience, but after. We agree with Jung: it’s emotionally efficacious to
just close your eyes and experience.
