The Tragedy of Antony and Cleopatra

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

  • Antony returns in full force to Alexandria. He praises everyone, and they plan to battle again tomorrow.
  • Cleopatra then enters, and he greets her gaily. He happily presents Scarus and all his wounds to Cleopatra, who praises them all and promises him a suit of golden armor that once belonged to a king.
  • Antony again proclaims his love for "this fairy," claiming she is the only thing that can pierce the armor over his heart.
  • They dedicate the night to celebrating their victory in decadent Egyptian fashion.
