ARLT 101g Masters of Power: 10 Ancient Lives Spring 2008 Scenes from Antony & Cleopatra Act I.1.1-64 [stop at “Speak not to us.”] (pp. 7-11) Here Antony’s love for Cleopatra in Egypt seems to keep him from paying serious attention to political and military matters in Rome. In the scenes we’ve omitted, we see the frivolous nature of play and love-talk at Cleopatra’s court; Antony learns that one of his commanders in Parthia (modern Iraq and Iran) has deserted. Act I.2.131 [start at “Fulvia thy wife is dead”] – I.3.127 [stop at “Away!”] (pp. 21- 35) Here Antony learns of his wife Fulvia’s death; he decides he must leave Egypt and return to political and military affairs in Rome. In the scenes omitted, the other members of the triumvirate (Octavius Caesar and Lepidus) criticize Antony for his inattention to military matters (the upcoming battle with young Pompey). Cleopatra pines away for Antony; young Pompey plots against the triumvirate. Antony and Octavian patch up their differences by agreeing that Antony will marry Octavian’s sister Octavia.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
