Product description


4 Stars: [A] sympathetic biography... she is able to place Cleopatra securely in Egyptian culture and history. (Mail on Sunday)

Tyldesley's strength has always been her storytelling, and here she is on top form. (Sunday Telegraph)

Joyce Tyldesley's magnificent Cleopatra strips away many of our preconceptions to provide a rich, absorbing picture of a country and its Egyptian queen. (Belfast Telegraph)

(A) lucid summary of the Queen of the Nile's historical context and eternal allure...Over the past few years Tyldesley has established herself as perhaps the foremost popular writer on the rulers of Ancient Egypt... (T)his is a very readable account of the life of Cleopatra VII, and one that goes some way to redress the way in which she is often viewed. It also provides intriguing insights into life and society in the Egypt of the Ptolemies and the position of Egypt in the world-system of its time. (Times Higher Education Supplement)

An engaging new biography... to regard Cleopatra as an Egyptian ruler instead of a male myth and to assess her using scholarly and archaelogical tools is a worthy goal. It seems long overdue. (Louisa Thomas Newsweek 2008-11-03)

Book Description

The Romans regarded her as 'fatale monstrum', a female Saddam Hussein. Pascal said the shape of her nose changed the history of the world. Shakespeare and Tiepolo (and Elizabeth Taylor) portrayed her as an icon of tragic beauty. But who was Cleopatra, really?
