Sophocles, Electra, 369-371


nanLEADER: No angry word, I entreat! For both of you there is good in what is urged,- if thou, Electra, wouldst learn to profit by her counsel, and she, again, by thine. CHRYSOTHEMIS: For my part, friends, I am not wholly unused to her discourse; nor should I have touched upon this theme, had I not heard that she was threatened with a dread doom, which shall restrain her from her long-drawn laments. ELECTRA: Come, declare it then, this terror! If thou canst tell me of aught worse than my present lot, I will resist no more. CHRYSOTHEMIS: Indeed, I will tell thee all that I know. They purpose, if thou wilt not cease from these laments, to send thee where thou shalt never look upon the sunlight, but pass thy days in a dungeon beyond the borders of this land, there to chant thy dreary strain. Bethink thee, then, and do not blame me hereafter, when the blow hath fallen; now is the time to be wise. ELECTRA: Have they indeed resolved to treat me thus? CHRYSOTHEMIS: Assuredly, whenever Aegisthus comes home. ELECTRA: If that be all, then may he arrive with speed! CHRYSOTHEMIS: Misguided one! what dire prayer is this? ELECTRA: That he may come, if he hath any such intent. CHRYSOTHEMIS: That thou mayst suffer- what? Where are thy wits?
