Very light shelfwear to DJ. ; 290pp, illustrated. The Romans regarded her as " 'fatale monstrum' "-a fatal omen. Pascal said the shape of her nose changed the history of the world. Shakespeare portrayed her as an icon of tragic love. But who was Cleopatra, really? We almost feel that we know Cleopatra, but our distorted image of a self-destructive beauty does no justice to Cleopatra's true genius.
