Antony and Cleopatra By William Shakespeare Summary and Analysis Act IV: Scene 11

Summary

We now return briefly to Caesar and his army, also on the battlefield. He instructs his men that unless they are attacked, they should keep their strongest forces on land, to hold the positions they have.

Analysis

Caesar's apparent sea preparations are a ruse. He hopes, by this maneuver, to draw off Antony's best men to sea and take advantage of this strategy on land, where, thus far, Antony has been the victor.
