Hercules Furens free pdf Excerpt from Hercules Furens: A Tragedy of Seneca Thebes alone, profuse of shameless women, borne any husband sons! Alemene is allowed to go aloft and hold my place, my victor- and her son too, for whose birth the world gave up a day, and Ph bus, ordered to retain his brightness sunk beneath the Ocean, late illumed the Eastern sea, Alcides, has a promised seat in heaven. My wrath shall not thus die away: my raging soul shall cherish lasting hatred, and my cruel grief shall rupture peace and wage eternal war. What war? Whatever mouster hateful Earth has fathered, Hercules has conquered- and whatever frightful, dreadful, loathesome, fierce and savage thing the sea or air affords, has been subdued and tamed- and yet he lives and strengthens by his evils, and enjoys my rage: he makes my very hate his praise: by my too harsh commands I have made known his father: I have been the cause of his renown: his valor unsubdued is worshipped where the sun brings back the morning, and where he renews the evening, and where Ethiopia's coasts are scorched by his near torch: through all the world he is declared a god. Already monsters fail me- and it is less difficult for Hercules to execute my orders, than for me to find commands. He gladly undertakes whatever I impose on him. What harsh commands of Eurystheus can harm the eager youth? He even bears for weapons what he once has feared and overcome: he comes armed with the Lion and the Hydra. Earth is too contracted for him: he has even burst the gates of hell, and bears his booty from its conquered king up to the world. That it has been returned is not enough: the compact of the shades has perished. I myself have seen him scattering the gloom of the infernal deep, and hurling to his father plunder from his vanquished brother god. Why did he not drag out the king himself, of equal power with Jove, subdued and bound with chains, and seizing captured Erebus unbar the Styx? An exit for the shades has been laid open from the deepest cavern, and the secrets of dread Death arc brought to light. And now, the prison of the shades unbarred, he fiercely triumphs over me, and with a haughty hand he drags the dismal dog through Grecian cities. I have seen the clay retire, and the sun shake with fear at sight of Cerberus: a trembling has come over me, and looking on the conquered monsters triple necks, I scarce have dared impose my orders. But I make too light complaints- for heaven has cause to fear, that he, who has subdued the lower world, will also gel possession of the upper. He will not ascend to heaven.
