Storyboard Text

  • "See it-how the city sickens, Creon, these symptoms, yours fanatic will that caused them...Think, son, think! To err is human, ture, and only he is damned who having sinned will not repair...Believe me, I advise you well." -Tiresias
  • THEME: Blindness vs. Sight
  • Creon
  • The meaning of this theme in Episode 5 is that sometimes we miss the big picture going on. We are so absorbed in ourselves or so distracted doing things that we miss what truly matter most. Tiresias, a prophet, tries to help Creon see that his actions will lead to consequences for the Gods. He tells them that if he doesn't stop, his family will die. He calls Tiresias a liar and a fraud, and ignores him. Eventually, both his son, the heir to the throne, and his wife commit suicide, as shown below.
