833

Chorus O black curse on the family, Oedipus' curse, now brought to fulfillment! A chill of horror falls about my heart. 835In frenzy like a maenad I make my song for the grave as I hear of their corpses dripping with blood, how they died through the workings of cruel fate. This song of the spear, sung to the flute, is indeed born of an ill omen. [Note]
