The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from Oedipus Trilogy by Sophocles:|
Down to the depths of ocean out of sight.
Come hither, deign to touch an abject wretch;
Draw near and fear not; I myself must bear
The load of guilt that none but I can share.
Lo, here is Creon, the one man to grant
Thy prayer by action or advice, for he
Is left the State's sole guardian in thy stead.
Ah me! what words to accost him can I find?
