Menelaus Reclaims Helen as Troy Falls

As Polyxena describes the scene: Menelaus strode up to Helen bent on avenging the injury and humiliation she caused him. He raised his sword -did I misjudge him?- and for an instant there I thought he might indeed kill her. But then she looked at him, tears streaming from her face, and if ever there was a sight to melt a man’s heart, it was that of Helen in grief, peering into his eyes, her lovely face it its pitiful best, amplifying her suffering. He paused in his observation and then sheathed his sword. Helen’s future was secure.
