Cleopatra. La regina che sfidò Roma e conquistò l'eternità

19,00 €
    Il mondo di oggi non sarebbe lo stesso senza Cleopatra, una sovrana colta, intelligente e dotata di una straordinaria abilità sia sul tavolo delle trattative che nelle guerre. Una donna di potere incredibilmente moderna per il passato e allo stesso tempo capace di provare grandi passioni amorose. Ma chi era veramente l'ultima regina d'Egitto? Lei, infatti, è nell'immaginario di tutti, però la sua figura storica è ancora in parte poco conosciuta e non priva di aspetti enigmatici a causa dei pochi dati certi che la riguardano. Alberto Angela ha deciso di ricostruire la vita e le abilissime mosse sullo scacchiere internazionale, ma anche gli amori e le passioni della regina che in un certo senso ha conquistato Roma, rintracciando le fonti storiche e consultando gli studi moderni, e accompagnandoci per mano tra le caotiche strade della capitale del mondo antico, sulle banchine dell'esotico porto di Alessandria d'Egitto e sui sanguinosi campi di battaglia, alla scoperta di persone, storie, usi e costumi. Alberto Angela è in grado di farci rivivere in prima persona il periodo che ha segnato un cambio epocale nella storia romana, dal racconto minuto per minuto dell'uccisione di Giulio Cesare che decreta la fine della Repubblica alla morte di Antonio e Cleopatra (la cui tomba non è ancora stata ritrovata!) fino alla nascita dell'Impero con Augusto al potere. "Cleopatra. La regina che sfidò Roma e conquistò l'eternità" è un viaggio nel tempo tra Occidente e Oriente, per riscoprire con uno sguardo nuovo una donna carismatica e intelligente e un periodo storico affascinante e convulso, ricco di contraddizioni, intrighi, passioni e guerre che hanno segnato il nostro presente e contribuito a rendere il mondo il luogo che oggi tutti noi conosciamo.

Cleopatra. La divina (Fanucci Editore)

5,00 €
    Cleopatra “la divina”, la più famosa regina d’Egitto, discendente dei Tolomei e di Alessandro Magno, salì al potere all’età di diciotto anni e regnò per un ventennio, periodo durante il quale si adoperò per riportare il suo impero all’antico splendore. Intelligente, colta, raffinata, poliglotta, riuscì a imporsi come l’incarnazione della dea Iside. Donna straordinaria, “non bella ma di grande fascino” secondo Plutarco, ammaliò gli uomini più potenti dell’epoca: Giulio Cesare e Marco Antonio. E insieme a quest’ultimo tentò di dare vita a un sogno ambizioso: unificare i regni di Roma e d’Egitto. Sogno, tuttavia, che si infranse nella battaglia di Azio, contro la flotta navale e le legioni di Ottaviano, futuro imperatore romano e promotore di una violenta propaganda contro di lei, nemica di Roma in quanto “donna” e “straniera”. L’ultimo ed epico atto della sua avventurosa esistenza contribuì a consegnarla definitivamente alla leggenda: sola e sconfitta, pur di non cadere viva nelle mani del nemico, Cleopatra si tolse la vita facendosi mordere al seno da un aspide. Morì la donna ma nacque il mito.

Cleopatra. L'ultima regina d'Egitto

7,00 €
    Cleopatra ha appena diciotto anni quando succede al padre, Tolomeo XII. Ha un unico obiettivo: riportare l’Egitto alla grandezza di un tempo. Sulla sua strada ci sono mille nemici – funzionari corrotti, ufficiali spietati, consiglieri sleali e persino un fratello pronto a tutto pur di strapparle il trono – eppure il nemico più pericoloso, quello che può davvero mandare in frantumi il suo potere è Roma, con la sua furia conquistatrice e il suo esercito poderoso. Ma non c’è sfida cui Cleopatra non possa tenere testa: armata di un’ambizione senza pari e di un’ammaliante sensualità, si presenta al grande Giulio Cesare e ne diventa subito l’amante. Vuole avere un figlio da lui, un maschio che sia riconosciuto da Roma come faraone e possa quindi regnare in pace. Ma, dopo la nascita di Cesarione, Cesare viene ucciso e Cleopatra si ritrova a fronteggiare avversari ancor più decisi a sbarazzarsi di lei. Finché, contro l’orizzonte della Storia, non si staglia la figura di Marco Antonio…

Antony and Cleopatra

9,00 €
    The plot is based on Thomas North's 1579 English translation of Plutarch's Lives (in Ancient Greek) and follows the relationship between Cleopatra and Mark Antony from the time of the Sicilian revolt to Cleopatra's suicide during the Final War of the Roman Republic. The major antagonist is Octavius Caesar, one of Antony's fellow triumvirs of the Second Triumvirate and the first emperor of the Roman Empire. The tragedy is mainly set in the Roman Republic and Ptolemaic Egypt and is characterized by swift shifts in geographical location and linguistic register as it alternates between sensual, imaginative Alexandria and a more pragmatic, austere Rome.

Antony and Cleopatra (English Edition)

2,00 €
    Antony and Cleopatra is a tragedy by William Shakespeare. It was first printed in the First Folio of 1623.The plot is based on Thomas North's translation of Plutarch's Life of Markus Antonius and follows the relationship between Cleopatra and Mark Antony from the time of the Parthian War to Cleopatra's suicide. The major antagonist is Octavius Caesar, one of Antony's fellow triumvirs and the future first emperor of Rome. The tragedy is a Roman play characterized by swift, panoramic shifts in geographical locations and in registers, alternating between sensual, imaginative Alexandria and the more pragmatic, austere Rome. Many consider the role of Cleopatra in this play one of the most complex female roles in Shakespeare's work. She is frequently vain and histrionic, provoking an audience almost to scorn; at the same time, Shakespeare's efforts invest both her and Antony with tragic grandeur. These contradictory features have led to famously divided critical responses.

Cleopatra

    I, Harmachis, Hereditary Priest of the Temple, reared by the divine Sethi, aforetime a Pharaoh of Egypt, and now justified in Osiris and ruling in Amenti. I, Harmachis, by right Divine and by true descent of blood King of the Double Crown, and Pharaoh of the Upper and Lower Land. I, Harmachis, who cast aside the opening flower of our hope, who turned from the glorious path, who forgot the voice of God in hearkening to the voice of woman. I, Harmachis, the fallen, in whom are gathered up all woes as waters are gathered in a desert well, who have tasted of every shame, who through betrayal have betrayed, who in losing the glory that is here have lost the glory which is to be, who am utterly undone—I write, and, by Him who sleeps at Abouthis, I write the truth.
