The book consists of illustrated quotations, both ancient and modern, about the fatal beauty of this most fatale of femmes, the Queen of Egypt, literature, stage and screen. The way we look at Cleopatra tells us about ourselves. We see how each generation has adopted Cleopatra and in turn fastened its own values to her image. Like Casanova, like Valentino, Cleopatra has beome a cultural icon, a symbol for a certain louche behaviour and luscious style. We want her, and we fear her, but we are always fascinated.
