I know that That s why I brought you here, outside the gates so only you can hear. What is it The way you look makes it seem 20, you re thinking of some dark and gloomy news. Look what s Creon doing with our two brothers, He s honouring one with a full funeral. and treating the other one disgracefully, Eteocles they say has had his burial. according to our customary rites, to win him honour with the dead below 30.
But as for Polyneices who perished, so miserably an order has gone out. throughout the city that s what people say, He s to have no funeral or lament. but to be left unburied and unwept, a sweet treasure for the birds to look at. for them to feed on to their heart s content 30, That s what people say the noble Creon. has announced to you and me I mean to me, and now he s coming to proclaim the fact 40.
to state it clearly to those who have not heard, For Creon this matter s really serious. Anyone who acts against the order, will be stoned to death before the city. Now you know and you ll quickly demonstrate, whether you are nobly born or else. a girl unworthy of her splendid ancestors, Oh my poor sister if that s what s happening. what can I say that would be any help, to ease the situation or resolve it 50 40.
Think whether you will work with me in this, and act together. In what kind of work, What do you mean, Will you help these hands. take up Polyneices corpse and bury it, What You re going to bury Polyneices. when that s been made a crime for all in Thebes, Yes I ll do my duty to my brother. and yours as well if you re not prepared to, I won t be caught betraying him.
You re too rash, Has Creon not expressly banned that act 60. Yes But he s no right to keep me from what s mine, O dear Think Antigone Consider. how our father died hated and disgraced 50, when those mistakes which his own search revealed. forced him to turn his hand against himself, and stab out both his eyes Then that woman. his mother and his wife her double role, destroyed her own life in a twisted noose.
Then there s our own two brothers both butchered, in a single day that ill fated pair 70. with their own hands slaughtered one another, and brought about their common doom. Now the two of us are left here quite alone, Think how we ll die far worse than all the rest. if we defy the law and move against 60, the king s decree against his royal power. We must remember that by birth we re women, and as such we shouldn t fight with men.
Since those who rule are much more powerful, we must obey in this and in events 80. which bring us even harsher agonies, So I ll ask those underground for pardon. since I m being compelled I will obey, those in control That s what I m forced to do. It makes no sense to try to do too much, I wouldn t urge you to No Not even. if you were keen to act Doing this with you, would bring me no joy So be what you want 70.
I ll still bury him It would be fine to die, while doing that I ll lie there with him 90. with a man I love pure and innocent, for all my crime My honours for the dead. must last much longer than for those up here, I ll lie down there forever As for you. well if you wish you can show contempt, for those laws the gods all hold in honour. I m not disrespecting them But I can t act, against the state That s not in my nature.
Let that be your excuse I m going now 80, to make a burial mound for my dear brother 100. Oh poor Antigone I m so afraid for you, Don t fear for me Set your own fate in order. Make sure you don t reveal to anyone, what you intend Keep it closely hidden. I ll do the same, No no Announce the fact, if you don t let everybody know. I ll despise your silence even more, Your heart is hot to do cold deeds.
But I know, I ll please the ones I m duty bound to please. Yes if you can But you re after something 110 90, which you re incapable of carrying out. Well when my strength is gone then I ll give up, A vain attempt should not be made at all. I ll hate you if you re going to talk that way, And you ll rightly earn the loathing of the dead. So leave me and my foolishness alone, we ll get through this fearful thing I won t suffer.
anything as bad as a disgraceful death, All right then go if that s what you think right. But remember this even though your mission 120, makes no sense your friends do truly love you. Exit Antigone away from the palace Ismene watches her go and then returns slowly. into the palace Enter the Chorus of Theban elders, O ray of sunlight 100. most beautiful that ever shone, on Thebes city of the seven gates. you ve appeared at last, you glowing eye of golden day.
moving above the streams of Dirce, driving into headlong flight. the white shield warrior from Argos, who marched here fully armed 130. now forced back by your sharper power, CHORUS LEADER. Against our land he marched 110, sent here by the warring claims. of Polyneices with piercing screams, an eagle flying above our land.
covered wings as white as snow, and hordes of warriors in arms. helmets topped with horsehair crests, Standing above our homes. he ranged around our seven gates 140, with threats to swallow us. and spears thirsting to kill, Before his jaws had had their fill 120. and gorged themselves on Theban blood, before Hephaistos pine torch flames.
had seized our towers our fortress crown, he went back driven in retreat. Behind him rings the din of war, his enemy the Theban dragon snake. too difficult for him to overcome 150, CHORUS LEADER. Zeus hates an arrogant boasting tongue, Seeing them march here in a mighty stream. in all their clanging golden pride 130, he hurled his fire and struck the man.
up there on our battlements as he began, to scream aloud his victory. The man swing down torch still in hand, and smashed into unyielding earth. the one who not so long ago attacked, who launched his furious enraged assault 160. to blast us breathing raging storms, But things turned out not as he d hoped. Great war god Ares assisted us, he smashed them down and doomed them all 140.
to a very different fate, CHORUS LEADER, Seven captains at seven gates. matched against seven equal warriors, paid Zeus their full bronze tribute. the god who turns the battle tide, all but that pair of wretched men 170. born of one father and one mother too, who set their conquering spears against each other. and then both shared a common death, Now victory with her glorious name.
has come bringing joy to well armed Thebes, The battle s done let s strive now to forget 150. with songs and dancing all night long, with Bacchus leading us to make Thebes shake. The palace doors are thrown open and guards appear at the doors. CHORUS LEADER, But here comes Creon new king of our land. son of Menoikeos Thanks to the gods 180, who ve brought about our new good fortune. What plan of action does he have in mind, What s made him hold this special meeting 160.
with elders summoned by a general call, Enter Creon from the palace He addresses the assembled elders. Men after much tossing of our ship of state, the gods have safely set things right again. Of all the citizens I ve summoned you, because I know how well you showed respect. for the eternal power of the throne, first with Laius and again with Oedipus 190. once he restored our city When he died, you stood by his children firm in loyalty.
Now his sons have perished in a single day, killing each other with their own two hands. a double slaughter stained with brother s blood 170. And so I have the throne all royal power, for I m the one most closely linked by blood. to those who have been killed It s impossible, to really know a man to know his soul. his mind and will before one witnesses 200, his skill in governing and making laws. For me a man who rules the entire state, and does not take the best advice there is.
but through fear keeps his mouth forever shut 180, such a man is the very worst of men. and always will be And a man who thinks, more highly of a friend than of his country. well he means nothing to me Let Zeus know, the god who always watches everything. I would not stay silent if I saw disaster 210, moving here against the citizens. a threat to their security For anyone, who acts against the state its enemy.
I d never make my friend For I know well, our country is a ship which keeps us safe. and only when it sails its proper course 190, do we make friends These are the principles. I ll use in order to protect our state, That s why I ve announced to all citizens. my orders for the sons of Oedipus 220, Eteocles who perished in the fight. to save our city the best and bravest, of our spearmen will have his burial.
with all those purifying rituals, which accompany the noblest corpses. as they move below As for his brother, that Polyneices who returned from exile. eager to wipe out in all consuming fire 200, his ancestral city and its native gods. keen to seize upon his family s blood 230, and lead men into slavery for him. the proclamation in the state declares, he ll have no burial mound no funeral rites.
and no lament He ll be left unburied, his body there for birds and dogs to eat. a clear reminder of his shameful fate, That s my decision For I ll never act. to respect an evil man with honours, in preference to a man who s acted well. Anyone who s well disposed towards our state 240, alive or dead that man I will respect 210. CHORUS LEADER, Son of Menoikeos if that s your will.
for this city s friends and enemies, it seems to me you now control all laws. concerning those who ve died and us as well, the ones who are still living. See to it then, and act as guardians of what s been proclaimed. Give that task to younger men to deal with, There are men assigned to oversee the corpse. CHORUS LEADER, Then what remains that you would have us do 250.
Don t yield to those who contravene my orders, CHORUS LEADER No one is such a fool that he loves death 220. Yes that will be his full reward indeed, And yet men have often been destroyed. because they hoped to profit in some way, Enter a guard coming towards the palace. My lord I can t say I ve come out of breath, by running here making my feet move fast. Many times I stopped to think things over, and then I d turn around retrace my steps.
My mind was saying many things to me 260, You fool why go to where you know for sure. your punishment awaits And now poor man, why are you hesitating yet again. If Creon finds this out from someone else 230, how will you escape being hurt Such matters. kept my mind preoccupied And so I went, slowly and reluctantly and thus made. a short road turn into a lengthy one, But then the view that I should come to you.
won out If what I have to say is nothing 270, I ll say it nonetheless For I ve come here. clinging to the hope that I ll not suffer, anything that s not part of my destiny. What s happening that s made you so upset, I want to tell you first about myself. I did not do it And I didn t see, the one who did So it would be unjust. if I should come to grief 240, You hedge so much, Clearly you have news of something ominous.
Yes Strange things that make me pause a lot 280, Why not say it and then go just leave. All right I ll tell you It s about the corpse, Someone has buried it and disappeared. after spreading thirsty dust onto the flesh, and undertaking all appropriate rites. What are you saying What man would dare this, I don t know There was no sign of digging. no marks of any pick axe or a mattock 250, The ground was dry and hard and very smooth.
without a wheel track Whoever did it 290, left no trace When the first man on day watch. revealed it to us we were all amazed, The corpse was hidden but not in a tomb. It was lightly covered up with dirt, as if someone wanted to avert a curse. There was no trace of a wild animal, or dogs who d come to rip the corpse apart. Then the words flew round among us all, with every guard accusing someone else 260.
We were about to fight to come to blows 300, no one was there to put a stop to it. Every one of us was responsible, but none of us was clearly in the wrong. In our defence we pleaded ignorance, Then we each stated we were quite prepared. to pick up red hot iron walk through flames, or swear by all the gods that we d not done it. we d no idea how the act was planned, or how it had been carried out At last.
when all our searching had proved useless 310, one man spoke up and his words forced us all. to drop our faces to the ground in fear 270, We couldn t see things working out for us. whether we agreed or disagreed with him, He said we must report this act to you. we must not hide it And his view prevailed, I was the unlucky man who won the prize. the luck of the draw That s why I m now here, not of my own free will or by your choice.
I know that for no one likes a messenger 320, who comes bearing unwelcome news with him. CHORUS LEADER, My lord I ve been wondering for some time now. could this act not be something from the gods, Stop now before what you re about to say 280.
