leaves. Helen Will you go for me to my sister's tomb? Electra Would you have me seek my mother's tomb? Why? Helen To carry an offering of hair and a libation from me. Electra Isn't it right for you to go to the tomb of one you love? Helen No, for I am ashamed to show myself in Argos. Electra A late repentance surely for one who left her home so shamefully then. Helen You have told the truth, but your telling is not kind to me. Electra What is this supposed shame before the eyes of Mycenae that possesses you? Helen I am afraid of the fathers of those who lie dead at Ilium. Electra Good cause for fear; your name is on every tongue in Argos. Helen Then free me of my fear and grant me this favor. Electra I could not bear to look upon my mother's grave. Helen And yet it would be shame indeed for servants to bear these offerings. Electra Then why not send your daughter Hermione? Helen It is not good for maidens to go into a crowd. Electra And yet she would be repaying her

Electra My dear friends of Mycenae, of foremost rank in Argos, the home of the Pelasgians. Chorus What are you saying to us, mistress? For this honored name is still left for you in the Danaid town. Electra Station yourselves, some here along the high road, others there on some other path, to watch the house. Chorus But why do you call me to this service? Tell me, my dear. Electra I am afraid that some one, who is stationed at the house for slaughter, may find trouble upon trouble. First Semi-Chorus Let us make haste and go on; I will keep careful watch upon this road towards the east. Second Semi-Chorus And I on this one, that leads westward. Electra Throw a glance sideways. Chorus Here and there, then we are looking back again, as you tell us.
