Subject:      Antony and Cleopatra Passage?

 

I am confused by the final words of this Antony and Cleopatra (2.2.200) passage:

 

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . on each side her

Stood pretty-dimpled boys, like smiling Cupids,

With divers-coloured fans, whose wind did seem

To glow the delicate cheeks which they did cool,

And what they undid did. (2.2.200)

 

Clarification would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Jack Kamen
