Just before Dawn. With blessings or with force? This is the same air that heard thee say it; and after all thou turnest round and hast been caught recasting thy letter to this effect, "I will no longer be my daughter's murderer. Menelaos Who gave me the right? Who gave you the right to spy upon my affairs? Dale and L.

Come, share with me thy story; to a loyal and trusty heart wilt thou be telling it; for Tyndareus sent me that day to form part of thy wife's dowry and to wait upon the bride with loyalty. So, calm yourself now, Klytaimestra. Cheiron, the centaur did, so that the child might be brought up not knowing the behaviour of evil men. Yet it is right that she should come with her sweet daughter to give her away as a bride… Ah! Furious at having been used as a prop in Agamemnon's plan, Achilles vows to defend Iphigenia, initially more for the purposes of his own honour than to save the innocent girl. Old Man So, my lord, why on earth are you wandering about out here, then?

Agamemnon He lives in Phthia, by the river Apidanus. With Clytemnestra already on her way to Aulis with Iphigenia and her baby brother Orestesthe brothers Agamemnon and Menelaus debate the matter. I shall run! Moreover I am filled with compassion for the hapless maiden, doomed to bleed that I may wed, when I reflect that we are kin.

Well, Helen, unfortunately, old man, chose Menelaos! Be that the prelude to my story. Agamemnon A king, darling, a General is always worried. Yes, you, daughter of the long-necked swan! Achilles A brief but adequate answer!

Old Man Psssst! Klytaimestra Have you made the pre-natal offerings to the goddess yet? It has burdened me with lack of sleep and with overactive eyes.

Now that Agamemnon has insulted me, dishonoured me so badly, I feel like a… like a nobody.
