Antony and Cleopatra Act 4, Scene 12

Antony and Scarus enter; Antony tells Scarus that he will go discover how things are going, and will come back to report. Alone, Scarus muses that the outlook is not as positive as the day before; he knows Antony is optimistic, but also very fearful of another sea battle.

Antony returns, cursing Cleopatra, and saying that she has betrayed him, just as she betrayed many men before him. His fleets have gone to Caesar's side and are celebrating with him, and he holds her responsible. He tells Scarus to tell his army to flee, and Scarus exits. Alone, Antony cries that he has been betrayed by the woman in whom he has put all his love and his faith. Cleopatra enters, and he turns her away, saying that he wishes that Caesar will capture her and make a public spectacle of her. She exits. Antony calls for Eros and vows that Cleopatra will die for her betrayal.
