Antony and Cleopatra Act 4, Scene 9 Summary & Analysis

Two soldiers are keeping guard at Octavius’ camp, when Enobarbus enters, repenting for having deserted Antony. He says that he hopes to die, and begs out loud for Antony to forgive him. He falls over and dies. The soldiers first think he has merely fainted but then realize he has died. They carry his body off.
Enobarbus regains some of his honor through his tragic death and refusal to fight against his former leader. He is ashamed of having betrayed Antony, though there are practically no characters in the play who have not betrayed someone.
