The study of Antony and Cleopatra and All for Love was made for the purpose of comparing an Elizabethan drama with a neo-classic play of the Restoration period. Reference was made to the history of the chief characters, and sources of the common plot were examined. Analysis of plot structure of each work furthered the comparison. The central characters as pictured by Dryden and Shakespeare have been contrasted. Comparison of a well-constructed play of the seventeenth century and a masterpiece of the Elizabethan era confirms in the mind of the writer the universal appeal and preeminence of Shakespeare.
