I just finished a biography of Augustus.
Cleopatraís romances with Julius Caesar and Mark Anthony were naturally part of the narrative.
It was said that she wasnít an exceptional experience visually. But in her manner of speaking and moving men found themselves helplessly enamored.
That quality of speech Iíve known only once really. Sadly I was not favored with that personís passion. That didnít make the power of sweetly enunciated syllables less vivid to read about.
That special way of moving Iíve witnessed and enjoyed many times. That and not the surface sheen is the power of androgyny.
Though I donít see myself enjoying either ever again Iím so happy to have in the past.
