In a strict sense, Racine's characters are not even real. Their emotional life has an intensity not given to the average person. Orestes is impervious to contempt, separation, and the healing power of time. His all-consuming love has a grandeur that soars above the banality of existence.

As thine, Andromache! thy griefs I dread; I see thee trembling, weeping, captive led. In Argive looms our battles to design, And woes, of which so large a part was thine! To bear the victor's hard commands, or bring The weight of waters from Hyperia's spring! There, while you groan beneath the load of life, They cry, 'Behold the mighty Hector's /5.
