Show Excerpt

Nay, old friend--[to ALCIMEDON, who wants to break in; then to ORESTES again]--though you slay us all, you have but lost the food and shelter we had given you; and the shedder of blood escapes not the Dread Watchers.


[Who had been cooling, starts and threatens her.] What know you of the Dread Watchers?


And there is little glory in the slaying of a woman, and little gain.


[Wildly.] What woman? Who are you that taunt me? Priest, is this your witch?


[Angrily.] She is no witch! You lie, both stranger and priest!


I am a bondwoman of the King.


Andromache, once wife of Hector, Prince of Troy.


And am I to be the guest of a bondwoman?


There are others of free estate who will take you in. I only sought to save men's lives.


What worth are men
