Euripides, Orestes (ed. E. P. Coleridge), line 763 (search)
Strophius, my father, in a fit of anger, has banished me from his house. Orestes Bringing against you a private charge, or one in which the citizens share? Pylades He says it is an unholy crime to have helped you slay your mother. Orestes Alas! It seems my troubles will cause you grief as well. Pylades I am not like Menelaus in character; this must be endured. Orestes Are you not afraid that Argos will desire your death as well as mine? Pylades I am not theirs to punish; I belong to Phocis. Orestes A terrible thing is the mob, whenever it has villains to lead it. Pylades But with honest leaders its counsels are always honest. Orestes Very well; we must consult together. Pylades About what necessity? Orestes Suppose I go and tell the citizens— Pylades That your action was just? Orestes In avenging my father? Pylades I am afraid they would be glad to catch you. Orestes Well, am I to crouch in fear and die without a word? Pylades That is cowardly. Orestes How then sho

e robbed of happiness. Pylades How far you are from grasping what I mean! May the fruitful earth, the radiant sky refuse to hold my blood, if ever I turn traitor and desert you when I have freed myself. For I shared in the murder, which I will not deny, and also schemed the whole plot, for which you are now paying the penalty; and so I ought to die together with you and her. For I consider her, whom you betrothed to me, as my wife. Whatever shall I say, when I reach Delphi, the citadel of Phocis, if I was your friend before your misfortunes, but ceased to be your friend, when you were unfortunate? That must not be; no, this concerns me, too. But since we are to die, let us take counsel together that Menelaus may share our misfortune. Orestes Best of friends! if only I could see this before I die. Pylades Listen to me, and delay the stroke of the sword. Orestes I will, if I may take vengeance on my enemy. Pylades Hush now! I have small confidence in women. Orestes Have no fear

Orestes O you that have the spirit of a man, though your body shows you to be a woman, how far more worthy you are to live than to die! Pylades, you will lose such a woman to your sorrow, or if you live, you will have a blessed marriage. Pylades Then may it be so, and may she come to the city of Phocis with all the honors of a happy wedding. Orestes How soon will Hermione return to the palace? All the rest was very well said, if we succeed in catching this impious father's cub. Electra Well, I expect she is near the house already, for the length of time agrees exactly. Orestes Good; you, Electra, my sister, stay before the palace and await the maiden's approach; keep watch in case any one, whether an ally or my father's brother, forestalls us by his entry before the murder is complete; and then make a signal to the house, either by beating on a panel of the door or calling to us within. Let us enter now and arm ourselves with swords for the final struggle, [:Pylades, for you
