Forget the Cleopatra of myth and movies. Katherine Fenton narrates this audiobook focusing on Cleopatra's considerable abilities as a ruler, rather than her tragic death and purported skill as a seducer. Sources include the writings of ancient historians, including Plutarch. Fenton communicates in a tone of educated authority when enlightening the listener with factual information gleaned from the remains of antiquity. She is equally adept at conveying the author's obvious disdain for the way popular culture has portrayed Cleopatra in film and other media. She is particularly scornful of the 1963 film CLEOPATRA, starring Elizabeth Taylor. In this audiobook listeners will hear of Cleopatra's famed love affairs but will also see her as a skilled politician, leader, and city planner.
