Shakespeare next focuses on several battle scenes. The first opens at Antony's camp, where  Antony, Cleopatra, and Enobarbus are planning their strategy. The main issue concerns whether or  not they will fight Caesar on land or on sea. Against his better judgment, Antony chooses to fight  Caesar on the sea. As the scene opens, Enobarbus bitterly chides Cleopatra for being present on the battlefield. She  retorts that since Rome has declared war on her and Antony, she has the right to be present. Antony and Canidius enter, and Antony reports on Caesar's past victories at sea. Cleopatra chides  her lover for not taking swifter action against Caesar, and Antony agrees: if Caesar chooses to fight  'by the sea," Antony will do likewise; Antony's valor is at stake. Caesar "dares us to it," he says.

    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.
