This chapter draws an analogy between Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra and Spenser's The Faerie Queene, showing that, while Antony and Cleopatra combines comedy, tragedy and romance with allegory, lyric, history and myth, it also features the breaking of formal conventions and is concerned with gender. It lists the details and dates related to the believability of relevant intertextual relations between The Faerie Queene and Antony and Cleopatra, as well as their connections within modern critical studies. The chapter also discusses an imaginative affinity between these two works.

Keywords:   Antony and Cleopatra, formal conventions, gender, intertextual relations, modern critical studies, imaginative affinity
