1. Conscript Fathers !
I do not rise to waste the night in words;
speak! 2. But this I will avow, that I have scorned,
And still do scorn, to hide my sense of wrong!
And make the murder as you make the law!
From daily contact with the things I loathe ?
Who'll prove it, at his peril, on my head ?
I held some slack allegiance till this hour;
Strong provocations, bitter, burning wrongs,
5. “Traitor!” I go; but I return. This-trial ?
Here I devote your senate! I've had wrongs
6. I go; but not to leap the gulf alone.
I go; but, when I come, 'twill be the burst

The Guttural is that quality of voice in which the sound is sent forth from the organs in a rough, harsh, discordant tone, with the resonance in the lower part of the throat. It resembles in quality the growling utterance of the lower animals. It differs from the Pectoral only in degree. They are, indeed, one and the same quality, the Pectoral being but a milder form of the Guttural. To cultivate this quality of voice practice the elements, words, and sentences with a muffled, harsh, smothered tone.
