Quote #7

CLYTEMNESTRA
vouchsafe
That ever thus exempt from harms I rule
The Atridae's home and kingdom, in full life,
Partaking with the friends I live with now
All fair prosperity, and with my children,
Save those who hate and vex me bitterly. (649-654)

Clytemnestra's prayer is full of the worst kind of arrogance.

Quote #8

THE CHORUS
But through thy loyalty to Heaven's eternal cause
Wearing the stainless crown
Of perfectest renown,
And richly dowered by the mightiest laws. (1093-7)

The Chorus would have us believe that the gods condone Electra's resolve.
