Italian term or phrase: attergarsi
Opera: Verdi's Macbeth. Macbeth sees a vision of eight kings. One of the kings (Banquo, whom Macbeth murdered) has a mirror:
2:5 Fuggi, regal fantasima,
Che Banco a me rammenti!
La tua corona è folgore,
Gli occhi mi fai roventi!
(al secondo)
Via, spaventosa immagine,
Che il crin di bende hai cinto!
(agli altri)
Ed altri ancor ne sorgono?...
Un terzo?... un quarto?... un quinto?
O mio terror!... dell'ultimo
Splende uno specchio in mano.
E nuovi Re s'attergano
Dentro al cristallo arcano...
E'Banco, ahi, vista orribile!
