Sophocles, Antigone, 510-519


nanAre you not ashamed that your beliefs differ from theirs?


nanNo, there is nothing shameful in respecting your own flesh and blood.


nanANTIGONE: The dead man will not say that he so deems it. CREON: Yea, if thou makest him but equal in honour with the wicked. ANTIGONE: It was his brother, not his slave, that perished. CREON: Wasting this land; while he fell as its champion. ANTIGONE: Nevertheless, Hades desires these rites. CREON: But the good desires not a like portion with the evil. ANTIGONE: Who knows but this seems blameless in the world below? CREON: A foe is never a friend-not even in death. ANTIGONE: Tis not my nature to join in hating, but in loving. CREON: Pass, then, to the world of the dead, and, it thou must needs love, love them. While I live, no woman shall rule me.


nanWas not he your brother too, who died in the opposite cause?


nanA brother by the same mother and the same father.


nanWhy, then, do you pay a service that is disrespectful to him?


nanThe dead man will not support you in that.


nanYes, he will, if you honor him equally with the wicked one.


nanIt was his brother, not his slave, who died.


nanBut he died ravaging this land, while he fell in its defense.


nanHades craves these rites, nevertheless.
