The scene opens at Cleopatra's monument, or tomb. Cleopatra is being comforted by  her attendants when Diomedes enters to tell them what has happened to Antony.  Shortly thereafter, Antony is carried in on a stretcher by his soldiers and is raised up to  the balcony. There, he makes a farewell speech and bids Cleopatra to seek safety from  Caesar. But Cleopatra refuses, and as Antony dies, she faints, mourning the loss of the  only person who made her life worth living. She vows to bury him in Roman fashion,  and, in addition, she vows to follow his example. As the scene ends, she and her  women carry Antony's body away. Here we have proof that Cleopatra truly loved Antony. Yet we shall still see one last bit of  her wily scheming as she deceives her Roman captors long enough to end her own life  and follow Antony.

    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.
