Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff

Cleopatra is one of the most mysterious people in history and much has been speculated about her life, relationships, and death. Stacy Schiff brings Cleopatra alive in this biography which is not only packed with information about the infamous Egyptian queen herself, but also the state of Rome and Alexandria at the time of Cleopatra’s rule. Schiff traces Cleopatra’s beginnings to her time on the throne, her relationships with Caesar and Marc Antony and ultimately, her death. In this book, Cleopatra’s story reads much like a novel when coupled with the author’s slightly sarcastic tone.
