Sample text

Proclaiming what new affliction hast thou frighted me from the tent, as some bird from its nest, with this alarm? HEC. Alas! my child! POLYX. Why address me in words of ill omen? This is an evil prelude. HEC. Alas! for thy life. POLYX. Speak, conceal it no longer from me. I fear, I fear, my mother; why I pray dost thou groan? HEC. O child, child of an unhappy mother! POLYX. Why sayest thou this? HEC. My child, the common decree of the Greeks unites to slay thee at the tomb of the son of Peleus.

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. HEC. Him did I once bring forth, him bore I in my bosom. AGA. Is this indeed one of thy children, O unhappy woman?

AGA. By whose hand then he is dead, and having met with what fate? HEC. By whom else should he? The Thracian host slew him. AGA. O wretch! was he so inflamed with the desire of obtaining the gold? HEC. Even so, after he had heard of Troy's disasters. AGA. And where didst thou find him, or who brought the body? HEC. She, meeting with it on the sea-shore. AGA. In quest of it, or occupied in some other employment? HEC. She was going to bring from the sea wherewith to bathe Polyxena. AGA. This friend then, as it seems, murdered him, and after that cast him out.
