Title: RELEASING THE POWER OF THE POSITIVE FEMININE ARCHETYPE IN THE PERFORMING ARTS : CASE IN POINT: SHAKESPEARE’S IMMORTAL QUEEN, CLEOPATRA AS ISIS
Author: Stein, Jaclyn L.
Abstract: This thesis gives evidence to support the idea that the character of Cleopatra (Queen of Egypt), as constructed by William Shakespeare for use in his play The Tragedy of Antony and Cleopatra, was based on the Egyptian goddess Isis, as Shakespeare had available for his use several key documents which demonstrated that the historical Cleopatra was similar in character to this goddess.
