|Coast where the Danaids arrived from Egypt|
I spent two days finding the places where Aeschylus set some tragedies, in the Argolis, around Argos in Greece. The plays, topically enough, are about the blessings and hazards which immigrants can bring to a community. Over a hundred Egyptians of both sexes, fighting between themselves for power back home, suddenly turn up at a sanctuary by the beach where on Friday morning I celebrated the young British electorate’s courage.
