    Default traducción de monólogo

    Hola a todos!

    Necesito ayuda para traducir esta frase a inglés (es un monólogo de una madre que ha perdido a su hijo):

    "¡Oh! ¡Adónde iría yo por mi hijo... vivo o muerto! Por besar sus huesos pelados ¡qué años no daría, si no de vida, que ya no puedo ofrecerla, qué años de gloria pasándolos de más en el purgatorio!"

    Muchas gracias de antemano

    Oh! Where would I not go for my son – in life or death! Just to kiss his bare bones, what years would I not give, if not in life, since I cannot offer them, then years of glory spent instead in purgatory?


    I hope someone else will proof this. I feel a little intimidated translating a classic work. I looked for a translation but couldn't find one.

    Since this is a mother's grief over a missing son (perhaps in battle, Elisatas?) I would translate it so---fairly similar to Gernt's,

    Ah! Where would I not go to retrieve my son---alive or dead! Just to kiss his bare bones, what years would I not give, if not of life, since I can no longer offer it, at least of Heaven bartered for Purgatory!
