In reply to the speculation about the meaning of "did and "undid" in Enobarbus's description of Cleopatra: Many years ago I published an essay in Shakespeare Quarterly on the subject. 

 

Doing and Undoing: The Value of Action in Antony and Cleopatra .” By: Berek, Peter; Shakespeare Quarterly, 1981 Fall; 32 (3): 295-304.

I thank all who commented on my query re: ..’what they undid did’.

 

They all demonstrated how interesting deep scholarship can be.
