cute; découvert à Iphigénie, qui se soumet volontairement au désir de son père.)

Mon Père,
Cessez de vous troubler, vous n'êtes point trahi.
Quand vous commanderez, vous serez obéi.
Ma vie est votre bien. Vous voulez le reprendre:
Vos ordres sans détour pouvaient se faire entendre.
D'un oeil aussi content, d'un coeur aussi soumis
Que j'acceptais l'époux que vous m'aviez promis,
Je saurai, s'il le faut, victime obéissante,
Tendre au fer de Calchas une tête innocente,
Et respectant le coup par vous-même ordonné,
Vous rendre tout le sang que vous m'avez donné.

Si pourtant ce respect, si cette obéissance
Paraît digne à vos yeux d'une autre récompense,
Si d'une mère en pleurs vous plaignez les ennuis,
J'ose vous dire ici qu'en l'état où je suis
Peut-être assez d'honneurs environnaient ma vie<
