  • At that moment he was thinking of Aegisthus, who had been killed by Agamemnon's son Orestes; so he said to the other gods: 'See now, how men lay blame upon us gods for what is after all nothing but their own folly

  • It is more likely he is on some sea-girt island in mid ocean, or a prisoner among savages who are detaining him against his will I am no prophet, and know very little about omens, but I speak as it is borne in upon me from heaven, and assure you that he will not be away much longer; for he is a man of such resource that even though he were in chains of iron he would find some means of getting home again

  • What country does he come from? Of what family is he, and where is his estate? Has he brought you news about the return of your father, or was he on business of his own? He seemed a well-to-do man, but he hurried off so suddenly that he was gone in a moment before we could get to know him.' 'My father is dead and gone, ' answered Telemachus, 'and even if some rumour reaches me I put no more faith in it now

  • She it was who now lighted Telemachus to his room, and she loved him better than any of the other women in the house did, for she had nursed him when he was a baby

  • Jebb Dramatis Personae ORESTES, son of Agamemnon and CLYTEMNESTRA ELECTRA, sister of ORESTES CHRYSOTHEMIS, sister of ORESTES AN OLD MAN, formerly the PAEDAGOGUS or Attendant Of ORESTES CLYTEMNESTRA AEGISTHUS CHORUS OF WOMEN OF MYCENAE Mute Persons PYLADES, son of Strophius, King of Crisa, the friend Of ORESTES

  • Why should the omen trouble me, when by a feigned death I find life indeed, and win renown? I trow, no word is ill-omened, if fraught with gain

  • As ELECTRA finishes her lament, (the CHORUS OF WOMEN OF MYCENAE enter

  • Ah, queen of sorrow, Niobe, thee I deem divine, - thee, who evermore weepest in thy rocky tomb! CHORUS strophe 2 Not to thee alone of mortals, my daughter, hath come any sorrow which thou bearest less calmly than those within, thy kinswomen and sisters, Chrysothemis and Iphianassa, I who still live, - as he, too, lives, sorrowing in a secluded youth, yet happy in that this famous realm of Mycenae shall one day welcome him to his heritage, when the kindly guidance of Zeus shall have brought him to this land, Orestes

  • For this woman, in professions so noble, loudly upbraids me with such taunts as these: 'Impious and hateful girl, hast thou alone lost a father, and is there no other mourner in the world? An evil doom be thine, and may the gods infernal give thee no riddance from thy present laments.' Thus she insults; save when any one brings her word that Orestes is coming: then, infuriated, she comes up to me, and cries;- 'Hast not thou brought this upon me? Is not this deed thine, who didst steal Orestes from my hands, and privily convey him forth? Yet be sure that thou shalt have thy due reward.' So she shrieks; and, aiding her, the renowned spouse at her side is vehement in the same strain, - that abject dastard, that utter pest, who fights his battles with the help of women

    Wake Not the Dead/Tieck
    Short story.

  • 'Wherefore, fond wretch, dost thou grieve thus, for what is now a hideous mass of mortality -- mere bones, and nerves, and veins? Nations have fallen unlamented; even worlds themselves, long ere this globe of ours was created, have mouldered into nothing; nor hath any one wept over them; why then should'st thou indulge this vain affliction for a child of the dust -- a being as frail as thyself, and like thee the creature but of a moment?' Walter raised himself up: -- 'Let yon worlds that shine in the firmament' replied he, 'lament for each other as they perish

  • Immediately the storm began to howl among the tops of the trees; owls flapped their wings, and uttered their low voice of omen; the stars hid their mild, beaming aspect, that they might not behold so unholy and impious a spectacle; the stone then rolled from the grave with a hollow sound, leaving a free passage for the inhabitant of that dreadful tenement

  • Alas! is the impetuous torrent to be checked in its devastating course by the beauteous flowers over which it rushes, when they exclaim: -- 'Destroyer, commiserate our helpless innocence and beauty, nor lay us waste?' -- the stream sweeps over them unregarding, and a single moment annihilates the pride of a whole summer

    : the Black Irish Myth : :
    A theory as to why people of Irish descent like to lay claim to Spanish blood
    from the Armada. Links the Black Irish to the Melungeons. By Tom Kunesh.

  • A very small number of the more than seven hundred Spanish men who made it alive to the Irish coast survived, and a few of those who did allegedly became intimate with enough Irish women so as to engender a new inter-racial (Hibernian-Iberian) strain of progeny whose 'dark hair and eyes and soft brown Southern skin testifies to its .'() This story has been retold by a number of Irish and Irish-Americans of this decade by way of explaining their own 'dark hair and eyes' -- although from personal experience these facial characteristics have never been matched by a 'brown Southern skin.' No folk or scholastic literature (to the best of my knowledge) exists to verify this Hispanic ancestry and, indeed, it is doubted whether there is any proof at all to the claims of Spanish blood in Irish veins

  • The former question -- the 'how' of myth -- is best described as the historical background surrounding the mythic characters which, in this instance, are the sailors of Spain and the women of Eire

  • All of the correspondences fit: past (primeval) present (1588) Spanish males: the Sons of Mil sailors of the Armada Irish females: Danann, 'wives' 'Irish girls' Spain-sea: Milesian fleet the Armada Eire-land: Tuatha De Danann descendants of Mil Espane Both landings also entailed initial Irish resistance to the foreign españoles and subsequent inter-marriage of the native Irish women with the dominant militaristic Spanish men
