Subject:        Cleopatra

If, in Act V, Dolabella, Proculeius, and Caesar had managed to convince
Cleopatra that she would not be exhibited in Rome she would not have killed
herself.

Such is strongly suggested by Shakespeare.

How to we assess Cleopatra's behaviour in Act V?

It looks like she is meeting the dead Antony not because she wants to do so but
because she has no alternative.

So much for the "great " love?

Subject:        Madness

Can anyone recommend some good articles or books discussing the theme of
madness in Shakespeare's plays, plays by his contemporaries, or general
information on madness in the Renaissance? Preferably nothing published before
1950.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks!
