Caesar and Cleopatra satirizes Shakespeares use of history and comments wryly on the politics of Shaws own time, but the undertone of melancholy makes it one of his most affecting plays.
CLEOPATRA. Of course not: I am the Queen; and I shall live in the palace at Alexandria when I have killed my brother, who drove me out of it. When I am old enough I shall do just what I like. I shall be able to poison the slaves and see them wriggle, and pretend to Ftatateeta that she is going to be put into the fiery furnace.
