Anne Carson’s translation presents more emotionally detached characters in the ending of Antigone in comparison to Robert Fagles’ translation through analytical, meta-textual, and third person elements in character speech. In both Carson’s and Fagles’ translation, when Kreon sentences Antigone to death, Antigone reveals she would make the same sacrifice for a husband or child as she did or Polynicesc. In Antigonick, Antigone then continues, “This is a weird argument” (Carson). After the dramatic verse, this analytical comment suddenly drains the emotion. In contrast, Antigone from Fagles’ translation follows her speech with an accusation: “For this, Creon, the king, judges me a criminal” (1006).

at the beginning of the act, Tamora, the captive of the Goths, delivers this speech :"". Because she and her sons are captured by Titus Andronicus, Titus wants to sacrifice Tamora's oldest son as a memorial to Titus' 21 sons who died during the war. She talks to Titus Andronicus solely to convince him to not slaughter her first born son and have mercy on her. In the sense that Titus has fought the brutal war for ten years and are in the hatred of 21 dead sons, Titus killed Tamora's son no matter how she begs him. However, despite the death of Tamora's son, Tamora's speech successfully moves Titus and makes him have sympathy by the logical flaw from the beginning to the end, the use of rhetorical devices, and ethos appeals.
Her clinic was spread verbally and helped aid more than four hundred women total in the ten days it was operating (Posts about Comstock Law on Margaret Sanger Paper Project).
