Sophocles, Antigone, 1320-1329


nanI admit the truth. Lead me away, my servants, lead me from here with all haste, who am no more than a dead man!

nanThe course you recommend is to your gain, if there can be gain amidst evil. What is briefest is best, when trouble lies at your feet.

nanThe course you recommend is to your gain, if there can be gain amidst evil. What is briefest is best, when trouble lies at your feet.


nanCHORUS: Thy counsels are good, if there can be good with ills; briefest is best, when trouble is in our path. CREON: antistrophe 3 Oh, let it come, let it appear, that fairest of fates for me, that brings my last day,-aye, best fate of all! Oh, let it come, that I may never look upon tomorrow's light. CHORUS: These things are in the future; present tasks claim our care: the ordering of the future rests where it should rest. CREON: All my desires, at least, were summed in that prayer. CHORUS: Pray thou no more; for mortals have no escape from destined woe. CREON: antistrophe 4 Lead me away, I pray you; a rash, foolish man; who have slain thee, ah my son, unwittingly, and thee, too, my wife-unhappy that I: am! I know not which way I should bend my gaze, or where I should seek support; for all is amiss with that which is in my hands,-and yonder, again, a crushing fate hath leapt upon my head. (As CREON is being conducted into the palace, the LEADER OF THE: CHORUS speaks the closing verses.) LEADER: Wisdom is the supreme part of happiness; and reverence towards the gods must be inviolate. Great words of prideful men are ever punished with great blows, and, in old age, teach the chastened to be wise.END
