The Tragedy of Antony and Cleopatra

The Tragedy of Antony and Cleopatra

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

  • That night, as Antony’s soldiers stand watch and chat about the coming battle, strange oboe music begins to play. It seems to come from the air and the earth simultaneously.
  • The men guess it is the sound of Hercules (the god Antony modeled himself after and claimed as his ancestor) leaving Antony, which is not so good of a sign for the upcoming battle.
