    Wise women must always let men act on their behalf for all their needs. Chorus Lady, I fall before your knees! I beg you, I, an old woman, with aged lips beg you, my lady Save our sons! Chorus And I, too, beg you, my lady: Don’t let their dead bodies be torn apart by the wild mountain beasts! Chorus Look at me, my lady! Yea, stern the wrath of Zeus, the suppliants' lord. Child of Palaichthon, royal chief Of thy Pelasgians, hear! Bow down thine heart to my relief- A fugitive, a suppliant, swift with fear, A creature whom the wild wolves chase O'er toppling crags; in piteous case Aloud, afar she lows, Calling the herdsman's trusty arm to save her from her foes!

    This translation shows the striking interplay of voices in Euripides' 'Suppliant Women'. Torn between the mothers' lament over the dead and proud civic eulogy, between calls for a just war and grief for the fallen, the play captures the competing poles of the human psyche.

    "Euripides' Suppliant Women is an unfairly neglected master work by the most controversial of the three great tragedians of Ancient Greece. It dramatises the story of one of the proudest moments in Athenian mythical history: the intervention of Theseus in support of international law to force the burial of the Argive dead at Thebes.
