Storyboard Text

  • Creon: Tragic Hero
  • Noble: He was the King of Thebes
  • Hero: Took Responsibility as King
  • Creon is a tragic hero because he was a noble and royal person, he has a tragic flaw, he had a downfall, and he recognizes the mistakes he did to Antigone and Polynecies
  • Tragic Flaw: Stubbornness; the refusal to let Antigone free
  • "But here comes Creon, New King of our land,  son of Menoikeos"    (pg 262)
  • Realization of Fate: Tiresias warns Creon of his fate
  • “As long as I am king, no traitor is going to be honored with the loyal man.” (pg 168) When Creon became king he took on the responsibilities of both protecting and setting an example to his people
  • Downfall: The death of his son and wife
  • "Do you want me to show myself weak before the people? Or break my sworn word? No, and I will not. The women dies". (pg180)
  • "And so destroying avenges wait for you, furies of Hades and the Gods, who see you caught up in this very wickedness". "It wont be long before in your own house the men and women cry out in sorrow"  (pg 296).
  • "Angry at himself, the ill-fated lad right then and there leaned into his own sword driving half of the blade into his ribs"  "Your wife is dead blood mother of that corpse slaughtered with a sword"      (pg 296)
