From them I go down the last and by far the worst way, without having fulfilled my destiny in life. However, to go, great hopes for food dear to my dear father and also for you, mother, and you, brother, because when you were dead, I have washed my hands and I arranged everything and I offered libations on the grave. And now, Polynices, to hide your body, like it treatment. But I honor you properly in the opinion of the wise. As ever, although it had been the mother of children, even if my husband died was being corrupted, I made about this work against the will of the people. "Under what principle I talk like that? If a husband dies, another you can have, and a child of another man if he had lost one, but when the father and mother are hidden in Hades could never born a brother. And so, according to this principle, I will distinguish between all my honor to Creon and a terrible lack audacity, oh brother. And now I take after take me in your hands, no bridal bed, no wedding song, without having taken part in marriage or parenting, but, in this way, abandoned by friends, unhappy, I go live to the graves of the dead.
