Oxford University Press

The third chapter shows the potential disjunction between expressions of remorse and their sincerity. Hermione, a main character in Euripides’ Andromache, displays a remorse she does not feel in the hopes that it will mitigate her punishment. Again, there are similarities to what remorse can do in the modern world.
