Look upon me, friends, and pity me turning back at the night's edge to say good-bye to the sun that shines for me no longer.
Here is Antigone, passing to that chamber where all find sleep at last.
You will remember what things I suffer, and at what men’s hands, because I would not transgress the laws of heaven.
She raced with young colts on the glittering hills and walked untrammeled in the open light: but in her marriage deathless fate found means to build a tomb like yours for all her joy.
The Choragus gives Antigone her sentence by telling her she will go the the chamber where she will stay. Antigone knows this means death and tries to explain there is no food or water available to her. She receives no lighter punishment and leaves to the chamber.
Antigone accepts her punishment even though she knows she will eventually die in the chamber. She still feels that burying Polynecies was the right thing to do and doesn't regret it. Her fate was inevitable due to her family background.
The Chrous confirms that punishing Antigone was the right decision. They review her families past and help the reader understand that Antigone's fate was destined because of her family curse.
