Storyboard Text

  • Ismene, I am going to bury our dear brother, Polyneices. Will you come?
  • Bury him! You just said the new law forbids it. We are only women. We cannot fight with men, Antigone!
  • I will bury him; and if I must die, I say that this crime is holy. You may do as you like, sine apparently the laws of the gods mean nothing to you.
  • Go then, if you feel that you must. You are unwise, but a loyal friend indeed to those who love you.
  • In the Greek mythology, women are viewed lower than men. Women do not have power nor do they have the freedom of speech. However, Antigone is going to rebel against the law in order to bury her brother. Antigone is a strong, independent women.
  • She covered her brother's body. Is this indecent? She kept him from dogs and vultures. Is this a crime? Death?--She should have all the honor that we can give her!
  • The gods in Greek mythology believed it was a disgrace to not properly bury the dead. Antigone is pious because she makes sure to bury her brother.
  • O Oedipus, father and brother! Your marriage strikes from the grave to murder mine. All my life the blasphemy of my birth has followed me.
  • Antigone's loyalty to her brother and the gods was a tragic flaw. In the end, it led to her death because it went against King Creon's law.
  • Take her, go! You know your orders: take her to the vault and leave her alone there. And if she lives or dies, that's her affair, not ours.
  • O tomb, vaulted bride bed in eternal rock, soon I shall be with my own again where Persephone welcomes the thin ghosts underground and I shall see my father again, and you, mother, and dearest Polyneices.
  • Antigone is a flat character because she remains stubborn and persistent throughout the story. She never changes her mind about her decision to bury her brother.
  • Oedipus was arrogant and thought he can escape fate. However, he couldn't and ends up marrying his own mother. Antigone is cursed because of her family's past, and it also leads to her death.
  • Antigone is a courageous woman. She does not fear death and is ready to die for her actions. She thinks of it as a family reunion.
