After Orestes leaves, Phoenix reproaches Pyrrhus for letting Orestes see the woman he loves.  Supposing he persuades her to elope with him? Pyrrhus says they may elope any time, as far as he  is concerned. Andromache is passing by, and Pyrrhus inquires if Andromache was coming to see him, but she tells  him she was simply on her way to give her imprisoned child his daily kiss. Pyrrhus tells her that a  Greek embassy has come to demand her son's death, and Andromache cries that he cannot  pronounce so cruel a sentence. Is she to lose everything dear to her in life — and always because of  Pyrrhus? Pyrrhus says he has already refused their request and will continue to protect Astyanax  even at the cost of another Trojan War. But in return, Andromache surely owes him some gratitude.  Will she not accept his suit?

    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.
