Example text

And I, O daughter, shall be a slave in the light of day. POLYX. Without the bridegroom, without the bridal song, which I ought to have obtained. HEC. Mournful thou, my child; but I am a wretched woman. POLYX. There shall I lie in darkness far from thee. HEC. Alas me, what shall I do? where end my life? POLYX. I shall die a slave, born of a free father. HEC. But I bereft indeed of fifty children. POLYX. What message shall I bear to Hector, and to thy aged husband? HEC. Tell them that I am most miserable of all women.

As much then as I wish to have shall be mine; but I will withdraw myself out of the way of the aged Hecuba, for she is advancing her step beyond the tent of Agamemnon, dreading my phantom. Alas! O my mother, who, from kingly palaces, hast beheld the day of slavery, how unfortunate art thou now, in the degree that thou wert once fortunate! but some one of the Gods counterpoising your state, destroys you on account of your ancient prosperity. HECUBA. CHORUS. HEC. Lead onward, ye Trojan dames, the old woman before the tent; lead onward, raising up one now your fellow-slave, but once your queen; take me, bear me, conduct me, support my body, holding my aged hand; and I, leaning on the bending staff of my hand,[4] will hasten to put forward the slow motion of my joints.

Agamemnon, by these knees, and by thy beard I implore thee, and by thy blessed hand-- AGA. What thy request? Is it to pass thy life in freedom? for this is easy for thee to obtain. HEC. Not this indeed; but so that I avenge myself on the bad, I am willing to pass my whole life in slavery. AGA. And for what assistance dost thou call on me? HEC. In none of those things which thou imaginest, O king. Seest thou this corse, o'er which I drop the tear? AGA. I see it; thy meaning however I can not learn from this.
