Sophocles, Antigone, 490-499


nanI charge that other with an equal share in the plotting of this burial. Call her out! I saw her inside just now, raving, and not in control of her wits. Before the deed, the mind frequently is convicted of stealthy crimes when conspirators are plotting depravity in the dark.

nanANTIGONE: Wouldst thou do more than take and slay me? CREON: No more, indeed; having that, I have all. ANTIGONE: Why then dost thou delay? In thy discourse there is nought that pleases me,-never may there be!-and so my words must needs be unpleasing to thee. And yet, for glory-whence could I have won a nobler, than by giving burial to mine own brother? All here would own that they thought it well, were not their lips sealed by fear. But royalty, blest in so much besides, hath the power to do and say what it will. CREON: Thou differest from all these Thebans in that view. ANTIGONE: These also share it; but they curb their tongues for thee. CREON: And art thou not ashamed to act apart from them? ANTIGONE: No; there is nothing shameful in piety to a brother. CREON: Was it not a brother, too, that died in the opposite cause? ANTIGONE: Brother by the same mother and the same sire. CREON: Why, then, dost thou render a grace that is impious in his sight?


nanBut, truly, I detest it, too, when one who has been caught in treachery then seeks to make the crime a glory.

nanWhat more do you want than to capture and kill me?


nanI want nothing else. Having that, I have everything.


nanWhy then do you wait? In none of your maxim
