Storyboard Text

  • The Sentry comes to Creon with Antigone, who was burying Polynices. Creon didnt believe it was her, so the Sentry explains how he and his colleagues watched her bury his bofy after a whirlwind of dirt. She doesnt deny the charge; she knew of the decree that no one should bury Polynices. Antigone believes that the Gods of the underworld didnt have the same law as Creon. She welcomes death and is not afraid of it.
