Envoys From Alexandria Analysis

Author: poem of C.P. Cavafy Type: poem Views: 7

Sponsored Links

They had not seen, for ages, such beautiful gifts in Delphi

as these that had been sent by the two brothers,

the rival Ptolemaic kings. After they had received them

however, the priests were uneasy about the oracle. They will need

all their experience to compose it with astuteness,

which of the two, which of such two will be displeased.

And they hold secret councils at night

and discuss the family affairs of the Lagidae.

But see, the envoys have returned. They are bidding farewell.

They are returning to Alexandria, they say. And they do not ask

for any oracle. And the priests hear this with joy

(of course they will keep the marvellous gifts),

but they also are utterly perplexed,

not understanding what this sudden indifference means.

For they are unaware that yesterday the envoys received grave news.

The oracle was given in Rome; the division took place there.
