Storyboard Text

  • Prologue
  • How could you dare, when Creon has expressly forbidden it?
  • Is he not my brother, and yours, whether you like it Or not? I shall never desert him, never.
  • Parados
  • Great is the victory, great be the joy In the city of Thebes, the city of chariots. Now is the time to fill the temples with glad thanksgiving for warfare ended; shake the ground with the night-long dances, Bacchus afoot and delight abounding.
  • Scene 1
  • It's this, sir. The corpse... someone has just buried it and gone. Dry dust over the body The scattered, in the manner of holy burial
  • Well, out with it, and let's be done with you.
  • What? Who dared to do it?
  • Antigone is asking her sister, Ismene, to help with the burial of her brother, Polynieces. This is because Creon had forbidden it because Polyneices was seen as a traitor and was not worthy of a burial.
  • Scene 2
  • (2) I knew it, naturally. It was plain enough.
  • (1) Did you know the order forbidding such an act?
  • (3) And yet you dared to contravene it?
  • The chorus is celebrating the victory that they had just accomplished over Polyneices' army, and that the terrible battle between the brothers is over with.
  • Scene 3
  • (2) Then, if she dies, she does not die alone.
  • (1) You'll never marry her this side of death.
  • In this scene the sentry tells king Creon that Polyneices body has been burried even after Creon had established a law that was meant to prevent people
  • Scene 4
  • (1)Alas, that word had the sound of death.
  • (3)Gods of our fathers, my city, my home, Rulers of Thebe! Time stays no longer Last daughter of your royal house Go i, his prisoner, because I honoured those things to which honour truly belongs
  • In this scene the sentry brings Antigone to Creon and says that she is the one who buried Polyneices. King Creon asks her if she is aware of the law and Antigone replies stating that his law is not above divine law. And Creon sentences Antigone to death.
  • (4) Yes. That order did not come from God...
  • In this scene Haemon enters the play and although he bashes Antigone he then begins to call out Creon for his "wrong headedness" and says that if Antigone dies he will die with her which also expresses his love for her.
  • (4)Is it a threat to try to argue against wrong-headedness?
  • (3) Is that a threat, you impudent-
  • In this scene Antigone is led to her death by Creon and Antigone compares herself to Persephone and also says that she will die without a husband(very dramatic) She states that the chorus is mocking her because of the way she is acting and what she says.
  • (2) Indeed there is no more to hope for.
