Which line from Antigone's final lament starting at line 978 describes what she MOST grieves?


"I, the last of them all, the most reviled by far, go down before my destined time's run out."


"Never, I tell you, if I had been the mother of children, or if my husband died, exposed and rotting -- I'd never have taken this ordeal upon myself, never defied our people's will."


"And now he leads me off, a captive in his hands, with no part in the bridal-song, the bridal-bed, denied all joy of marriage, raising children -- deserted so by loved ones, struck by fate, I descend alive to the caverns of the dead."


"Whom to call, what comrades now? Just think, my reverence only brands me for irreverence!"


"...if this is the pleasure of the gods, once I suffer I will know that I was wrong."
