All for Love or, The World Well Lost is John Dryden's 1677 adaptation of the tragedy of Antony and Cleopatra into a neo-classical quintet with supporting voices: After Cleopatra's desertion of Antony at the battle of Actium, not only his wife Octavia but also his general Ventidius and his friend Dolabella strive to win him over to their side. Antony, torn between the claims of duty, friendship, dignity and love, despairs when he hears the rumour of Cleopatra's death, which is not, as in Shakespeare's version, spread by the queen herself but by her deceitful eunuch. This edition includes Dryden's dedication of the play to the Earl of Danby and his preface, in which he defends against French neo-classicist strictures the liberties he took with his sources; it further discusses the play's austere power in the theatre, which is unjustly considered to be inferior to Shakespeare's quite distinct version of the story.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 3,0, http: //www.uni-jena.de/ (Anglistisch/Amerikanistisches Institut), course: Proseminar: Shakepearean plays and their literarary reception in the Restoration Period, language: English, abstract: John Dryden was one of the most famous writers of the 17th century and one of the most brilliant drama theorists. Therefore this paper wants to show the concepts of drama by John Dryden and Aristotle on the examples of Dryden's All for Love and Shakespeare's play Antony and Cleopatra as the adaptation original. The theory of the drama concept is based mainly on Aristotle, which is the fundament of all tragedy and comedy and especially for John Dryden's concept. Dryden used the theory of Aristotle very strictly and therefore shaped the tragedy writing of his time and after it will be the thesis of this paper. To prove this thesis the classical drama concept of Aristotle, which is the fundament of Shakespeare's and Dryden's theory, must be explained. Secondly Dryden's theory will be demonstrated as well as the concept of theatre in his time. Dryden lived in the Restoration era, so his thinking and his works are shaped by this time. Therefore Dryden's theory and concept of drama will be analyzed in its historical context. After this discussion there will be an analyses of Dryden's way to adapt Shakespeare and his purpose by writing All for Love, which is the mostly read adaptation of Shakespeare. There will be a discussion of the character conception, the language of Dryden and the Restoration period and the so called three unities based on Aristotle's theory. The story of this play will be explained and the characters within this story. There will also be an analyses of the very special and typical scene of All for Love when Cleopatra and Octavia, the two rivals, speak to each other, and of other scenes as well. Afterwards follows a discussion of the themes love and duty, which are very typi
