Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master This reply is said by Antony during a dialogue with Cleopatra which takes place at the very beginning of the play. The dialogue is introduced with a remark from Philo, who describes Antony, one of the most powerful man in Earth, as a fool led by the nose by Cleopatra’s charm. Cleopatra asks Antony how much he loves her, and he answers that love cannot be counted. He further explains that to measure the extent of his love, she would need to find a new planet or go beyond heaven.
