Storyboard Text

  • Creon: Tragic Hero
  • Noble 
  • Hero 
  • "And so I have the throne, all royal power, for I'm the one most closely linked by blood to those who have been killed"(262).
  • Tragic Flaw
  • "But here comes Creon, new King of our land, so of Menoikes. Thanks to the gods, who've brought about our new good fortune"(262).
  • Realization of Flaw
  • "For anyone who acts against the state, its enemy, I'd never make my friend. For I know well our country is a ship which keeps us safe, and only when it sails its proper course do e make friends. These are the principles I'll use in order to protect our state"(262).
  • Tragic Downfall
  • "As for his brother- that Polyneices who returned from exile, eager to wipe out in all- consuming fire his ancestral city and its native gods, keen to seize upon his family's blood and lead men into slavery- for him, the proclamation in the state declares he'll have no burial mound, no funeral rites, and no lament" (262-263). 
  • "For any man, even if he's wise, there's nothing shameful in learning many things, staying flexible. You notice how in winter floods the trees which bend before the storm preserve their twigs. The ones who stand against it are destroyed, root and branch"(280).
  • "I killed you, my son, without intending to, and you, as well, my wife. How useless I am now. I don't know where to look or find support. Everything I touch goes wrong, and on my head fate climbs up with its overwhelming load"(303).
