Anthony and Cleopatra (Folio 1, 1623)


Enter Cleopatra, Charmian, Iras, Mardian.
2810Cleo. Helpe me my women: Oh hee's more mad
Then Telamon for his Shield, the Boare of Thessaly
Was neuer so imbost.
Char. To'th'Monument, there locke your selfe,
And send him word you are dead:
2815The Soule and Body riue not more in parting,
Then greatnesse going off.
Cleo. To'th'Monument:
Mardian, go tell him I haue slaine my selfe:
Say, that the last I spoke was Anthony,
2820And word it (prythee) pitteously. Hence Mardian,
And bring me how he takes my death to'th'Monument.
Exeunt.
