The Tragedy of Antony and Cleopatra

The Tragedy of Antony and Cleopatra


by William Shakespeare

The Tragedy of Antony and Cleopatra Act IV, Scene xiii Summary

  • Cleopatra flees to her women, afraid of Antony’s rage.
  • Charmian suggests she lock herself up in her monument and send word to Antony that she’s dead. Cleopatra thinks this is a good idea, and sends Mardian to tell Antony she’s killed herself, and that her last word was "Antony." She instructs Mardian to return to her and tell her how Antony takes the false news.
