Aeschylus, Agamemnon (ed. Robert Browning), line 104 (search)
CHOROS. Empowered am I to sing The omens, what their force which, journeying, Rejoiced the potentates: (For still, from God, inflates My breast song-suasion: age, Born to the business, still such war can wage) -- How the fierce bird against the Teukris land Despatched, with spear and executing hand, The Achaian's two-throned empery--o'er Hellas' youth Two rulers with one mind: The birds' king to these kings of ships, on high, -- The black sort, and the sort that's white behind, -- Appearing by the palace, on the spear-throw side, In right sky-regions, visible far and wide, -- Devouring a hare-creature, great with young, Baulked of more racings they, as she from whom they sprung! Ah, Linos, say -- ah, Linos, song of wail! But may the good prevail!
Aeschylus, Agamemnon (ed. Robert Browning), line 420 (search)
"But dream-appearing mournful fantasies -- There they stand, bringing grace that's vain. For vain 't is, when brave things one seems to view; The fantasy has floated off, hands through; Gone, that appearance, -- nowise left to creep, -- On wings, the servants in the paths of sleep!" Woes, then, in household and on hearth, are such As these--and woes surpassing these by much. But not these only: everywhere -- For those who from the land Of Hellas issued in a band, Sorrow, the heart must bear, Sits in the home of each, conspicuous there. Many a circumstance, at least, Touches the very breast. For those Whom any sent away, -- he knows: And in the live man's stead, Armour and ashes reach The house of each.
Aeschylus, Agamemnon (ed. Robert Browning), line 538 (search)
Of vestures, making hair a wild-beast matting. Winter, too, if one told of it -- bird-slaying -- Such as, unbearable, Idaian snow brought -- Or heat, when waveless, on its noontide couches Without a wind, the sea would slumber falling -- Why must one mourn these? O'er and gone is labour: O'er and gone is it, even to those dead ones, So that no more again they mind uprising. Why must we tell in numbers those deprived ones, And the live man be vexed with fate's fresh outbreak? Rather, I bid full farewell to misfortunes! For us, the left from out the Argeian army, The gain beats, nor does sorrow counterbalance. So that 't is fitly boasted of, this sunlight, By us, o'er sea and land the aery flyers, "Troia at last taking, the band of Argives Hang up such trophies to the gods of Hellas Within their domes -- new glory to grow ancient!" Such things men having heard must praise the city And army-leaders: and the grace which wrought them -- Of Zeus, shall honoured be. Thou hast my whole word.
