Rachael Kelly

Edinburgh University Press

The chapter, “Problematic Masculinity: Antony and the Political Sphere in Rome,” by Rachael Kelly, examines the failure of the character of Antony to perform the paradigm of the political, hegemonic male in the second season of the series Rome. This chapter sets the depiction of Antony’s political failure against the series’ creative decision to subordinate his doomed love affair with Cleopatra to the wider story of the end of the Roman Republic.

Keywords:   Rome, Mark Antony, masculinity, political sphere, Cleopatra
