1 The Outsider By Shannon, Jasmine and Kelvin

2 Definiton: A person who does not belong to, or is excluded from a society or group. Examples within ‘Antony & Cleopatra’: Antony Cleopatra Caesar Octavia Lepidus Pompey

3 Act I Antony Leaves Rome to be with Cleopatra Romans feel abandoned Makes impulsive decisions because he thinks with his heart and not his head (Egyptian characteristic) “The triple pillar of the world transformed into a strumpet’s fool.” ( ) – Philo (friend to Antony)

4 Act II Octavia Outsider because nobody loves her Her brother uses her as a way of mending the bond between him and Antony “To hold you in perpetual amity, to make you brothers, and to knit your hearts, with an unslipping knot, take Antony, Octavia to his wife.” ( ) – Agrippa Pompey He has been deceived by the triumvirate He is the enemy, therefore he is naturally an outsider He is neither Roman nor Egyptian, does not fit into either society

5 Act III Lepidus Classed as an outsider by Enorbarbus and Agrippa Later thrown into jail by Caesar by accusing him of treason, loses his reputation with Romans Act IV Antony Does not belong to either side anymore Fighting for himself only “Sometimes we see a cloud that’s dragonish, a vapour sometime like a bear or lion, a towered citadel, a pendant rock…” (4.14.2) - Antony Act V Caesar Only triumvir remaining

6 Whole play Cleopatra Outsider because she is a lady of power in a male-dominated era Differs from Rome because her kingdom is ruled by women Also because her people base their lives around their passion and not logic “Name Cleopatra as she is in Rome.” ( ) – Antony

7 “Sometimes we see a cloud that’s dragonish, a vapour sometime like a bear or lion, a towered citadel, a pendant rock…” (4.14.2) - Antony Metaphor/simile which compares Antony to a cloud “The triple pillar of the world transformed into a strumpet’s fool.” ( ) - Philo Metaphor referring to Antony’s loss of respect from Rome

8 “To hold you in perpetual amity, to make you brothers, and to knit your hearts with an unslipping knot, take Antony Octavia to his wife,” ( ) - Agrippa Metaphor showing that Octavia was merely a pawn in Caesar’s game

9 Positive Although Cleopatra is an outsider, Antony may see this as being unique and different, which is what attracts him to her Negative Shakespeare generally portrays the position of the outsider as being negative Exclusion/isolation leads to conflict

10 Paid more attention to the one not belonging to the group Made them feel sorry for and pity the outsider Made them dislike Cleopatra for being a slut
