Sophocles Ajax 125-126

 

 

“For I see that we who live are nothing more than ghosts and empty darkness”

 

ὁρῶ γὰρ ἡμᾶς οὐδὲν ὄντας ἄλλο πλὴν

εἴδωλ᾽ ὅσοιπερ ζῶμεν ἢ κούφην σκιάν.

 

Ajax the son of Telamon was not a happy man.

Ajax took his own life in the face of disappointment and dishonor. Some blame Odysseus.
