Creon: I have no idea about such things, Oedipus and when it comes to things I know nothing about, I prefer to keep my mouthy shut. When in her frenzy she had passed inside The vestibule, she hurried straight to win The bridal-chamber, clutching at her hair With both her hands, and, once within the room, She shut the doors behind her with a crash. Old Polybus received you as a gift from my hands. However, word has it that Laius was killed by strangers, thieves, at a three-way cross road. Oedipus And where are these men? Chorus: Still, once he hears your curses, fear might get the better of him and come forth. Oedipus: Did you not search for your murdered king's corpse? Oedipus: lunges at him angrily How much more of this can anyone hear? The whole nation is suffering from this wound, this plague and we see no way to be rid of it. The citizens carry branches wrapped in wool, which they offer to the gods as gifts.

oedipus translation

Herald Not having a child of his own taught him to do that, my Lord. Whate'er the god deems fit To search, himself unaided will reveal. Let someone gather our folk here and I will do everything in my power to heal this mortal wound. I do not fear your angry face. Oedipus: Ask me no more, wife, just tell me: What height what age was Laius then? Oedipus Ask me no more, wife, just tell me: What height what age was Laius then? She places the wreaths and the incense on the altar. But O condemn me not, without appeal, On bare suspicion.

Translation of Oedipus in English

oedipus translation

Oedipus Will no one bring me this shepherd! Mind you, I speak as one who comes a stranger To this report, no less than to the crime; For how unaided could I track it far Without a clue? Tell me then, Oedipus, what is it that I've done against you? Enter a very distressed, male attendant. Hear me, O prince, my noble-hearted prince! Jocasta By all the gods, Oedipus! Oedipus And you are wrong to think that a man can murder a relative and get away with it! Even she who knew the rites and the arts of her aged sire stood amazed. This gives colour to the reading of Gronovius in line 404, armatae. Herald: The Corinthians have invited Oedipus to be their king. I will make confessions about things I know. Let him be exiled and not killed — even though, I know, it means my own death or my own exile in disgrace.

I ask you then to continue with your proclamation but there is no need for you speak to me nor to them indicating the chorus from now on, because… because the wound that has ravaged this city, is you! The proposed rites were ordinarily performed only at night. Wouldst thou betray us and destroy the State? I have no more for you. Chorus Since then, my Lord I can think of no other man more honourable than you in our great Thebes. What news do you have for us? This is man's highest end, To others' service all his powers to lend. What god, at length appeased, has shrouded my head in this dark veil?. Oedipus: You insulted me for every one of my qualities. Who so fit As peacemaker to reconcile your feud? Doth is already seize upon the generous feast? Go, bear ye aid to those given up to death; all pestilential humours of the land I take with me.

Shepherd: Yes, from fear of some bad oracle or other. We must unseal the earth, must implore the implacable divinity of Dis, must draw forth hither the people of infernal Styx. Oedipus: May Apollo reward you for this good deed, Creon! Yet even from the highest peak he will fall into the deepest abyss from where there is no escape. Make haste, planting uncertain steps, go, speed thee, fly! In a very rough manner. Upraise, O chief of men, upraise our State! Tell me because I weigh every word! All our host is in decline; Weaponless my spirit lies. If there were anything even more evil than this, it, too, would strike Oedipus! Shudders run through my heart with fear and my mind is unclear. Oedipus: To the chorus Is there anyone among you who knows this shepherd? This man here, my old friend, is that little boy! My poor, luckless heart, though, is hurt with these new suffering of Thebes and all the more if upon them are added your own sufferings, my king.

oedipus translation

Leave not thus nakedly for all to gaze at A horror neither earth nor rain from heaven Nor light will suffer. Chorus Countless are my sufferings. For he who most doth know Of bliss, hath but the show; A moment, and the visions pale and fade. Wretch whom no sojourner, no citizen May harbor or address, whom all are bound To harry from their homes. Jocasta And to you, too, stranger. Is there something you need from me? To help by whichever means one can, is a virtuous effort.

Oedipus (Seneca)

oedipus translation

He meant me well, yet had he left me there, He had saved my friends and me a world of care. Enter Creon wearing a laurel garland with berries. Go back into the palace, Oedipus! Chorus But, my king, I have told you many times before: I would be mad to disobey you. I am here with you and I am sitting upon his throne. On, on the demon goads. Neither a stranger nor a citizen could let me into his home nor even speak with me but send me on my cursed way.

To the woman who gave birth to him he is son and husband and to his father, both, a sharer of his bed and his murderer. Creon: Surely you, too, must trust him now! But his starting eyes stand forth to meet them and, eagerly following their kindred hands, rush upon their wound. He will take care of your fall. Chorus Apollo, god of healing, god from Delos, I dread the message you bring to us. Creon: But of course we did but we found nothing. Priest: You judge time well, Oedipus. Let his relatives and the relatives of them, see and hear his suffering.

Creon: Here, inside Thebes, Apollo said! Tell me then, what has brought you all here? Who gave birth to you, Oedipus, my son? Oedipus: Let emerge what will! You still stand by me, me, a blind man, and still you try to help me. Attendant: He groans with anger to open the doors so he can show all the Cadmians the real patricide, the real murderer of his own father and of his mother —how hard it is for the words to be uttered! Where do you think you will hide their consequence? Oedipus: Know this well, old man: that if this is what you really want then you must also want my destruction or my exile from this land. The audacity of the man! Oedipus Apollo did this my friends! No problems that I could see. With these very hands I had gripped at the man whose wife I hold now. Oedipus you're wrong to think that this mindless stubbornness of yours is a virtue. Creon, I beg you, their true parents are lost and you are their only relative.

SENECA THE YOUNGER, OEDIPUS

oedipus translation

Herald: I took highland herds to graze up there. Gather all the branches and pray no more. We can only find you, Holy man, to be her protector and saviour. This man has aimed high and highly he achieved. One last time from the time I was born, for I was born from the wrong parents, I was bonded with the wrong people and I have killed those I should have never killed! What an old piece of an evil memory you threw into my mind! Vile acts of which you are ignorant and which you cannot see. She places the wreaths and the incense on the altar. Creon I have no idea about such things, Oedipus and when it comes to things I know nothing about, I prefer to keep my mouth shut.
