Achilles Answers His Mother

`Let bygones be bygones. Done is done. Despite my anguish I will beat it down,

the fury mounting inside me, down by force.

But now I'll go and meet that murderer head-on,

that Hector who destroyed the dearest life I know.

For my own death, I'll meet it freely - whenever Zeus

and the other deathless gods would like to bring it on!

Not even Heracles fled his death, for all his power,

favorite son as he was to Father Zeus the King.

Fate crushed him, and Hera's savage anger.

And I too, if the same fate waits for me...

I'll lie in peace, once I've gone down to death.'
