«Vattene pur, crudel, con quella pace
che lasci a me; vattene, iniquo, omai.
Me tosto ignudo spirto, ombra seguace
indivisibilmente a tergo avrai.
Nova Furia, co’ serpi e con la face
tanto t’agiterò quanto t’amai.
E s’è destin ch’esca del mar, che schivi
li scogli e l’onde e che a la pugna arrivi,

English.png English translation

«Set off then, cruel one, with this peace
that you leave me; set off now, wicked one.
You will soon have my pure spirit, a tenacious shadow,
forever haunting you behind your shoulders.
A new Fury, with my claws and eyes
I will haunt you as much as I loved you.
And if Fate should allow you to escape the sea, to dodge
the rocks and waves and arrive in time for battle,

Translation by Campelli

« Va-t-en donc, cruel, avec la paix
que tu me laisses; va-t-en, injuste, va.
Tu m'aurais bientôt en arrière de toi, un esprit nu,
une ombre tenace te suivant éternellement.
Nouvelle Furie, mes griffes et mes yeux
te harcéleront autant que je t’ai aimé.
Et si le destin veut que tu échappes de la mer, esquivant
les écueils et les vagues, et que tu arrives à temps pour la bataille,

Translation by Campelli

«Vete pues, cruel, con esta paz
que me dejas; vete, inicuo, ahora.
Seré pronto nudo espíritu, una sombra tenaz
y eternamente te seguiré.
Nueva furia, con las garras y con el haz,
te acosaré tanto como te amé.
Y si el destino que sale del mar permite que esquives
los escollos y las olas y llegues al tiempo para la batalla,

Translation by Ana Lenhardy & Pedro Elías

»Geh nur, Grausamer, mit jenem Frieden,
den du mir lässt, geh, Ungerechter, jetzt.
Bald werd’ nackter Geist ich sein, unbeugsamer Schatten,
und ewig werd’ ich dir folgen.
Eine neue Furie, mit den Fängen und dem Antlitz
werd’ ich dich hetzen so sehr wie ich dich liebte.
Und wenn das dem Meer entsteigende Schicksal erlaubt,
dass du den Klippen und den Wolken entweichest
und rechtzeitig zum Kampfe kommest,

Translation by Bernd Neureuther
