Storyboard Text

  • Prologue
  • "Would you help me lift the body....you and me" (Sophocles 127)?
  • "You cannot mean...to bury him? Against the order" (Sophocles 127)?
  • Parados
  • "His swords stood round us, his jaws were opened against us" (Sophocles 129).
  • Scene 1
  • "It's this, sir. The corpse...someone has just/ Buried it and gone. Dry dust over the body/ They scattered, in the manner of holy burial" (Sophocles 133).
  • "What! Who dared to do it" (Sophocles 133).
  • This key scene in the Prologue depicts Antigone asking Ismene for help in burying their fallen brother Polynices. This conversation sparks an argument that creates a conflict between the sisters throughout the play, as well as establishes a foil between them.
  • Scene 2
  • "And yet you dared to contravene it" (Sophocles 138)?
  • This line from the Chorus states how before Polynices could attack the city he was cast out and stopped by the gods.
  • Scene 3
  • "He is gone, my lord, in very passionate haste./ And who shall say what a young man's wrath may do" (Sophocles 147)?
  • This quote shows how furious Creon was when he found out that someone disobeyed his order. This later leads to him coming into direct conflict with Antigone and leads to the downfall of his rule.
  • Scene 4
  • "Her life is ended from this day, her blood/ Will not be on our hands" ( Sophocles 150).
  • This scene depicts the growing conflict between Antigone and Creon, which shows her proclaiming that Creon's declaration is unjust because it is against the will of the gods.
  • "Yes./ That order did not come from God. Justice,/ That dwells with the gods below, knows no such law" ( Sophocles 138).
  • The scene shows how Creon has given up on trying to persuade his son Haemon to agree with him, and he has finally condemned Antigone to death.
  • "Let him go! Let him do! Let him rage as never man/ He shall not save those women from their doom" (Sophocles 147).
  • This scene shows how Antigone fearlessly faces her fate proclaimed to her by Creon for defying his order.
  • "So to my grave,/ My bridal-bower, my everlasting prison/ I go, to join those many of my kinsmen/ Who dwell in the mansions of Persephone" (Sophocles 150).
