Sophocles, Antigone, 1280-1289


nanecond, you will soon look upon further sufferings inside your house.


nanWhat worse suffering is still to follow upon these sufferings?


nanYour wife is dead, true mother of that corpse, poor lady, by wounds newly cut.


nanYour wife is dead, true mother of that corpse, poor lady, by wounds newly cut.


nanO harbor of Hades, hard to purify!


nanWhy, why do you ruin me? Herald of evil, of grief, what word do you say? Ah, you have done in a dead man anew! What are you saying, boy? What is this you report to me


nanWhy, why do you ruin me? Herald of evil, of grief, what word do you say? Ah, you have done in a dead man anew! What are you saying, boy? What is this you report to me


nanWhy, why do you ruin me? Herald of evil, of grief, what word do you say? Ah, you have done in a dead man anew! What are you saying, boy? What is this you report to me


nanCREON: antistrophe 1 Oh Hades, all-receiving whom no sacrifice can appease! Hast thou, then, no mercy for me? O thou herald of evil, bitter tidings, what word dost thou utter? Alas, I was already as dead, and thou hast smitten me anew! What sayest thou, my son? What is this new message that thou bringest-woe, woe is me!-Of a wife's doom-of slaughter headed on slaughter? CHORUS: Thou canst behold: 'tis no longer hidden within. (The doors of the palace are opened, and the corpse of EURYDICE is disclosed.) CREON: antistrophe 2 Ah me,-yonder I behold a new, a second woe! What destiny, ah what, can yet await me? I have but now raised my son in my arms,-and there, again, I see a corpse before me! Alas, alas, unhappy mother! Alas, my child! MESSENGER: There, at the altar, self-stabbed with a keen knife, she suffered her darkening eyes to close, when she had wailed for the noble fate of Megareus who died before, and then for his fate who lies there,-and when, with her last breath, she had invoked evil fortunes upon thee, the slayer of thy sons. CREON: strophe 3 Woe, woe! I thrill with dread. Is there none to strike me to the heart with two-edged sword?-O miserable that I am, and steeped in miserable anguish! MESSENGER: Yea, both this son's doom, and that other's, were laid to thy charge by her whose corpse thou seest. CREON: And what was the manner of the violent deed by which she passed away? MESSENGER: Her own hand struck her to the heart, when she had learned her son's sorely lamented fate. CREON: strophe 4 Ah me, this guilt can never be fixed on any other of mortal kind, for my acquittal! I, even I, was thy slayer, wretched that I: am-I own the truth. Lead me away, O my servants, lead me hence with all speed, whose life is but as death!


nanWhy, why do you ruin me? Herald of evil, of grief, what word do you say? Ah, you have done in a dead man anew! What are you saying, boy? What is this you report to me
