The Tragedy of Antony and Cleopatra Act IV, Scene i Summary Page 1

  • Back at Caesar’s camp outside of Alexandria, Thidias has returned to deliver Antony’s message.
  • Caesar scoffs at Antony's challenge, but it’s clear to Maecenas that Antony is distracted by his own fury. Although he’s valiant now, Antony is likely to be defeated.
  • Caesar plans: the next day, he’ll take his army (which, by the way, is full of defectors from Antony’s army), and they’ll fight the battle to end this war for good.
