vouring to persuade HECTOR not to go to the field.

“ Cass. Lay hold upon him, Priam ; hold him fast;
He is thy crutch: now if thou lose thy stay,
Thou on him leaning, and all Troy on thee,
Fall all together.

Come, Hector, come, go back:
Thy wife hath dream’d, thy mother hath had visions
Cassandra doth foresee; and I myself
Am like a prophet suddenly enrapt,
To tell thee that this day is ominous :
Therefore come back.

HECT. You know me dutiful; therefore, dear sir,
Let me not shame respect; but give me leave
To take that course, by your consent and voice,
Which you do here forbid me, royal Priam.

Cass. O, Priam, yield not to him.

Do not, dear father.
Hect. Andromache, I am offended with you ;
Upon the love you bear me, get you in.”

Act V. S. 3.
