I could have vowed that I should not soon be here again,-scared by thy threats, with which I had just been lashed: but,-since the joy that surprises and transcends our hopes Sophokles like in fulness to no other pleasure,-I have come, though 'tis in breach of my sworn oath, bringing this maid; who was taken showing grace to the dead. Sophokles do not thou, my son, at pleasure's beck, dethrone thy reason for a woman's sake; knowing that this is a joy that soon grows cold in clasping arms,-an evil woman to share thy bed and thy home.
But this is certain-she shall be deprived of her sojourn in the light. LEADER systema 2 For Zeus utterly abhors the boasts of a proud tongue; and when he beheld them coming on in a great stream, in the haughty pride of clanging gold, he smote with brandished fire one who was now hasting to shout victory at his goal upon our ramparts. Seest thou, beside the wintry torrent's course, how the trees that yield to it save every twig, while the stiff-necked perish root and branch?
antistrophe 2 For that hope whose Sophokles are so wide is to many men a comfort, but to many Sophokles false lure of giddy desires; and the disappointment comes on one who knoweth nought till he burn his foot against the hot fire.
Should love or law guarantee the dignity of the dead? There the fierce exuberance of his madness slowly passed away. A GUARD enters from the spectators' left. ' So debating, I went on my way with lagging steps, and thus a short road was made long. Exit HAEMON LEADER The man is gone, O king, in angry haste; a youthful mind, when stung, is fierce. No marriage shall be deemed by me a greater gain than thy good guidance. But I cherish good hope that my coming will be welcome to my father, and pleasant to thee, my mother, Sophokles welcome, brother, to thee; for, when Sophokles died, with mine own hands I washed and dressed you, and poured drink-offerings at your graves; and now, Polyneices, Sophokles for tending thy corpse that I win such recompense as this.
But, be he caught or be he not-fortune must settle that-truly thou wilt not see me here again. ANTIGONE The dead man will not say that he so deems it. ISMENE I do them no dishonour; but to defy the State,-I have no strength for that. strophe 2 And by the waters of the Dark Rocks, the waters of the twofold sea, are the shores of Bosporus, and Thracian Salmydessus; where Ares, neighbour to the Sophokles, saw the accurst, blinding wound dealt to the two sons of Phineus by his fierce wife,-the wound that brought darkness to those vengeance-craving orbs, smitten with her bloody hands, smitten with her shuttle for a dagger.
LEADER What, then, is this further charge that thou wouldst give? LEADER OF THE CHORUS Sophokles is thy pleasure, Creon, son of Menoeceus, touching this city's Sophokles, and its friend; and thou hast power, I ween, Sophokles take what order thou wilt, both for the dead, and for all us who live.
At last, however, it carried the day that I should come hither-to thee; and, though my tale be nought, yet will I tell it; for I come with a good grip on one hope,-that I can suffer nothing but what is my fate.
Speak and I will obey. CREON Yea, and more,-the seller of thy life for silver. strophe 2 Thy power, O Zeus, what human trespass can limit?
Nay, with loathing, and as if she were thine enemy, let this girl go to find a husband in the house Sophokles Hades.
Sexuality in Greek and Roman Society and Literature: A Sourcebook.
Despite the addition 'cum commentariis' in the title, the Aldine edition did not include the ancient scholia to Sophocles.
ANTIGONE O city of my fathers in the land of Thebe! What hath chanced, that makes my coming timely? CHORUS chanting Lo, yonder Ismene comes forth, shedding such tears as fond sisters weep; a cloud upon her brow casts its shadow over her darkly-flushing face, and breaks in rain on her fair cheek.
