In comparison with other tragedies of the playwright, suchad Hamlet, King Lear, Othello, Macbeth or Romeo and Juliet, the play arouses neither sorrow nor fear about its characters. The paper focuses on "Antony and Cleopatra" play by William Shakespeare. It is the story of two very effective people. Both protagonists deny the prosaic reality in the name of their divine game. They use all the available means to win and remain on their positions of the “godly creatures”.
