Hermione, left alone, expresses her hatred for Pyrrhus, whose very apology was indifferent and cold,  and then her horror at the thought that she may at any moment be responsible for his death. Cleone  arrives to tell her that the procession to the temple is taking place. Andromache, neither sad nor  joyful, walks obediently with Pyrrhus, who seems untroubled and radiantly happy. Orestes and his Greeks are already at the temple, Cleone reports, but she is not certain whether  Orestes will strike the fatal blow or not; he is hesitating, afraid to earn the dreadful names of assassin  and regicide. Infuriated, Hermione cries that she is sure he will let the occasion pass. Her mother,  Helen of Troy, found thousands of men to fight and die for her, but Hermione cannot persuade even  one to avenge her. She will go herself to strike down Pyrrhus or perhaps Orestes.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
