    But now let her go. Howbeit I now will ask thee to fulfill One great return-gift—not so great withal As I have given, for life is more than all; But just and due, as thine own heart will tell. This house shall give him welcome good, and he Shall wrest this woman from thy worms and thee. Insult me all you want! Dear hand that gives, I accept both gift and vow.

    I declare it-such marriages are profitable to mankind; otherwise, it is foolish to marry. The horses of one Diomede, in Thrace. Should I act inhospitably to a friend? Did she, who claims to be and is called my mother, bring me forth? A friend I knew, In whose house died a son, Worthy of bitter rue, His only one. This man will stay here, in this palace as a guest and he will take the queen away from you whether you like it or not.

    Quite strange. Admentus' parents basically told him to bugger off, but Alcestis, his wife, stepped in as the sacrifice, much to Ademntus' horror. Men live without despair Whose loves are ta'en. How I hope you come asking for my help one day! Hold me not; let me lie. All of you cry!

I must bury someone today. She The Alcestis of Euripides book hear! Alcestis does not make light of her sacrifice: she enjoyed her life and values it; she wishes one of the old people had died instead; she is very earnest that Admetus shall not marry again, chiefly for the children's sake, but possibly also from some little shadow of jealousy.

Or if he escape me, if he come not there To seek the blood of offering, I will fare Down to the Houses without Light, and bring To Her we name not and her nameless King Strong prayers, until they yield to me and send Alcestis home, to life and to my friend: Who gave me shelter, drove me not away In his great grief, but hid his evil day Like a brave man, because he loved me well.

Apollo I am here because the suffering of friends weighs heavily on me. O, how I envy the dead! Today, Chicago is taking pains to ensure that our Greek tragedies remain the leading English-language versions throughout the twenty-first century.
