Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Comparative Literature, grade: 1,3, LMU Munich (Institut für Englische Philologie), course: Shakespeare's Tragedies, language: English, abstract: "Ja, diese Cleopatra ist ein Weib, in der holdseligsten undvermaledeitesten Bedeutung des Wortes." (Heine 1978: 57)This statement - having been published in 1838 - lacks both thescientific objectivity and the political correctness that we todayconsider crucial for any literary criticism. Yet while alreadycontaining the important aspects: the dichotomy "holdselig" vs."vermaledeit", it stresses the importance of the female protagonist andconsiders her a prototype of "the female". Many critics followed theGerman poet and important critic of the time (who was far fromlimiting his criticism to literature) in all three points.The aim of this paper is to discuss feminist approaches to the play -most prominently the one of Coppélia Kahn - and to point out ways inwhich post-structuralist theories could complement these approaches.I will base my argumentation on the Arden edition of Antony andCleopatra, mostly because the annotations allow for a comparison ofthe text to Shakespeare's source, Plutarch. The changes, the varyingimportance given to events, passages and dramatic intention - theseall turn out to be extremely helpful.
