Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master During a conversation with Charmian, Cleopatra expresses her desire to seduce Antony by using a stratagem of adopting an attitude contrary to his own. Charmian tells her that he thinks that the opposite would be more effective, and that this kind of behavior is tiresome in the long run and leads to an opposite effect to that desired.
