With the full panorama of her life forever lost, Cleopatra touches us in a series of sensational images: floating through a perfumed mist down the Nile; dressed as Venus for a tryst at Tarsus; unfurled from a roll of linens before Caesar; and, couchant, the deadly asp clasped to her breast. Through such images, each immortalizing the Egyptian queen's encounters with legendary Romans - Julius Caesar, Mark Antony, and Octavian Augustus - we might also chart her rendezvous with the destiny of Rome. Diana Kleiner opens an entirely new perspective on one of the most intriguing women who ever lived.
