Euripides, Medea (ed. David Kovacs), line 1049 (search)
put up with that? No, it is mere weakness in me even to admit such tender words into my heart. Children, go into the house. Whoever is not permitted to attend my sacrifice shall feel concern for them: I shall not weaken my hand. [Oh! Do not, my angry heart, do not do these things. Let them go, hard-hearted wretch, spare the children. If they live with me in that other place,The author of these lines apparently means ‘Athens.’ Contrast the expressively ambiguous use of e)kei=to mean Hades in 1073 below. they will gladden you. By Hell's avenging furies, I shall never leave my children for my enemies to outrage.Among the reasons for deleting these lines is that they make no intelligible sense. Medea cannot resolve on murdering her children as the only alternative to leaving them to be outraged by the Corinthians when less than twenty lines earlier she discussed taking them with her. Also they refer explicitly in the children's hearing to their murder, unlike the ambiguous language else

Vinland voyages belong to about the year 1000. These Icelandic chronicles belong therefore to a date three centuries later. They were doubtless based upon earlier writings which had come down from the times of Leif and Thorfinn, subject to the various influences which affected similar writings at that period the world over. An interesting and valuable confirmation of the simple fact of the visit of the Northmen to Vinland is given us by Adam of Bremen, who visited Denmark between 1047 and 1073, when the voyages would have been within the memory of living men and natural subjects of conversation. In speaking of the Scandinavian countries, in his book, Adam describes the colonies in Iceland and Greenland, and says that there is another country or island beyond, which is called Vinland, on account of the wild grapes that grow there. He makes the assertion that corn also grows in Vinland without cultivation; and, thinking this may seem strange to European readers, he adds that his st

ere the guns under Colonel Carter (Hardaway's battalion, commanded by Cutshaw and Page's reorganized) opened upon him a murderous fire of spherical case and canister, which at once arrested his advance, threw his columns into confusion, and forced him to retreat in disorder. Heavily as he suffered on this occasion, our loss was nothing, and this was accomplished against a force of 12,000 picked infantry by twenty-nine pieces of artillery alone, but well handled. General R. S. Ewell, page 1073 of Records, says: As it was unadvisable to continue efforts to retake the salient with the force at my command, a new line was laid out during the day by General Lee's chief engineer, some 800 yards in rear of the first and constructed at night. After midnight my forces were quietly withdrawn to it and artillery placed in position, but his efforts and losses on the 12th seemed to have exhausted the enemy, and all was quiet till May 18 (1864), when a strong force advanced past the McCoo
