others and did no more than a single warrior, yet he gets more credit. [And sitting high and mighty in office in the city they think grander thoughts than the commons though they are worthless. The people are far superior to them in wisdom if they acquired at once daring and will.] It is in this fashion that you and your brother sit puffed up over Troy and your generalship there, made high and mighty by the toils and labors of others. But I will teach you not to regard Paris, shepherd of Mount Ida, a greater enemy to you than Peleus unless you clear off from this house at once, you and your childless daughter. This child, offspring of my loins, shall drive her through this house, grasping her by the hair, if she, sterile heifer that she is, does not put up with others' having children just because she herself has none. If her luck in respect to children is bad, must we be bereft of offspring? Clear away from this woman, slaves, so that I may learn whether anyone means to prevent m

Chorus Leader Look, here comes a stranger, a man of different hue from ourselves, hastening towards us with speedy step. Orestes Ladies who dwell in this foreign land, is this the house of Achilles' son and his royal residence? Chorus Leader It is. But who are you that ask this? Orestes My name is Orestes, and I am son of Agamemnon and Clytaemestra. I am going to the oracle of Zeus at Dodona. But since I have arrived in Phthia, I have decided to learn whether my kinswoman, Hermione of Sparta, is alive and enjoying good fortune. For though the land she dwells in is far off from me, she is nonetheless dear to me. Hermione kneels before Orestes and grasps his knees. Hermione O son of Agamemnon, appearing like a haven from storm to sailors, I beg you by your knees, have pity on me for the ill-luck you see me suffering, for my fortunes are not good!

Nurse My child, I did not praise your excessiveness when you committed your crime against the woman of Troy nor do I now praise your present excessive fear. Your husband will not, as you think, end his marriage to you, won over by the insignificant words of a barbarian woman. For you are not his as a prisoner taken from Troy, but he has received you with a large dowry and you are the daughter of a man of importance and come from a city of no ordinary prosperity. Your father will not, as you fTroy, but he has received you with a large dowry and you are the daughter of a man of importance and come from a city of no ordinary prosperity. Your father will not, as you fear, abandon you and allow you to be banished from this house. But go inside and do not show yourself in front of this house lest you disgrace yourself [being seen in front of these halls, my daughter]. Enter by Eisodos B Orestes in travelling costume.

m deceived! Menelaus Tell the whole world! I shall not deny it. Andromache Do you dwellers by the Eurotas find this clever? Menelaus Yes, just as do dwellers in Troy: it is called revenge. Andromache Are not the gods divine, do you not think they punish? Menelaus I'll bear that when it comes. But you I shall kill. Andromachuplicity being constantly unmasked? My curse upon you! The death-sentence you have passed on me is not so grievous. I was undone long ago when the unhappy city of Troy was destroyed and my glorious husband killed, whose spear often changed you from a plague on land to one on shipboard. And now you appear against a woman in grim wd are killing me. Kill on! For I shall leave you without uttering one word of truckling flattery to you or your daughter. For though you are great in Sparta, yet I was great in Troy, and if my fortune now is evil, do not make this your boast: yours may be so as well.Exit Andromache, Molossus, Menelaus, and retinue into the house.
Andromache sung Here am I, hands bloodied with the tight bonds about them, being sent down to death. Boy sung Mother, o mother, under your wing I go down as well. Andromache sung This is a cruel sacrifice, o rulers of Phthia! Boy sung Father, come and help those you love. Andromache sung Dear child, you will lie below dead with your dead mother, next to her breast. Boy sung Oh me! What will become of me? Unhappy are we, you and I, mother.

riage, and in his eyes I incur no less a penalty than in yours if I afflict his line with childlessness. That is the way I am. As for your nature, there is one thing I fear: it was in the matter of a female quarrel that you also destroyed unhappy Troy. Chorus Leader You have spoken too much as a women to a man, and has hurled forth sober judgment from your mind. Menelaus Woman, these things are, as you say, trifles and not worthy of my kingly power or of Greece. But make no mistake, whatever an individual happens to desire, that becomes for him greater than the conquest of Troy. I have become the fixed ally of my daughter, for I think it is a serious matter to be deprived of sex. Any other misfortunes a woman may suffer are secondary, but if she loses her husband she loses her life. Neoptolemus must rule over my slaves, and my kin—and I myself as well—must rule over his. For friends have no private property but hold all things in common. And i

rather than him, the man who is to blame? Will you let go the cause and attack the effect that came after? Alas for my misery! O my unhappy fatherland, what injustice I suffer! Why must I even have given birth and doubled the burden I bear? [But why do I lament these things but do not consider to their last drop the misfortunes immediately before me?] I saw Hector dragged to death behind a chariot and Troy put piteously to the torch, and I myself went, pulled by the hair, as a slave to the Argive ships. And when I came to Phthia, I was made the bride of Hector's slayer. How can life be sweet for me? To what shall I look? To my past or my present fate? I had left a single son, the eye of my life: those who have decided these things mean to kill him. But no, not to save my wretched life! If he survives he bears our hopes, while for me not to die on behalf of my child is a reproach. She leaves the altar and puts her arms about Molossus. There, I leave the altar and am in your hands, t
