Write The First Customer Review

New Heaven, New Earth is a philosophical study ofAntony and Cleopatra. Showing that the play is as much a history play as a love story, it closely examines Shakespeare's presentation of the transition from the pagan to the Christian world_from the aftermath of the collapse of the Roman Republic and the decline of the pagan gods to the emergence of the Roman Empire and the conditions giving rise to Christianity.
