Cleopatra: The Most Womanly of Women
and the Most Queenly of Queens

January Lecture, Monday 20 January 2020, 11.30 at Norden Farm 
We are excited to launch the 2020 lecture programme with this lecture. Cleopatra, for whom Antony is imagined to have given up the chance to rule the Roman world, has been inspiring painters, poets and film-makers for over two millennia. Images range from Roman to Renaissance to 20th century film stars as Vivien Leigh, Elizabeth Taylor and the Carry On team's Amanda Barry. Cleopatra became a screen onto which artists have projected their exotic and erotic fantasies. 

The lecturer, Lucy Hughes-Hallett is not only the author of 'Cleopatra and Heroes' but has also written a novel, 'Peculiar Ground'. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and of the Historical Association. She has reviewed for all the UK's serious newspapers and for Radio 3's 'Night Waves'. She teaches Creative Writing at Arcadia University and at Arvon, creative writing centres.
