Excerpt from The Amazons: A Lyrical Drama
The Amazons, hearing of the death of Hector and the extremity of the Trojans, come, under the leader ship of their queen, Penthesilea, to assist them. She challenges Achilles to single combat and is slain by him, but not before he has noted her marvellous beauty and great courage, and moved with sudden love, would have with-held the fatal blow. He laments over her death, and is taunted by Thersites, who speaks mockingly of the queen. Angered beyond endurance, Achilles turns upon him and slays him. Diomed, to avenge Thersites' death, steals the body of Penthesilea, which Achilles had returned to the Amazons, and casts it into the Scamander.
