Storyboard Text

  • Oh my tomb and bridal chamber--- my eternal hollow dwelling place, where i go to join my people
  • I'm the last one, dying here the most evil by far, as i move move down before the time allotted for my life is done.
  • But i go nourishing the vital hope my father will be pleased to see me come, and as well you, my mother, will come me, and as well as you, my dear brother.
  • In the cell above, Creon had Antigone taken to a chamber for her to be until the time of her death arrives. She mentions that this is her tomb and bridal chamber because she is going to be marrying death due to the fact that she had buried Polyneices and went against Creons law.
  • When you died, with my own hands i washed you.
  • She speaks about how shes the last in her family to die, and now there is only her sister Ismene which still has time ahead of her. But she also states how she is about to die ahead of the time that is placed before her.
  • I arranged your corpse and at the grave mound poured out libations. But now Polyneices , this is my reward for covering your corpse.
  • This cell above mentions how she will be "welcomed" by her father, mother and brother. Its quite obvious as to what Sophocles was trying to show, he was showing how Antigone will soon join them in death if Creon indeed does kill her.
  • If my husband died, there'd be another one, and if i were to lose a child of mine i'd have another with some other man. But since my father and my mother, too, are hidden away in Hades' house, ill never have another living brother.
  • Antigone was the only person to touch him and clean him with her own hands, prior to his burial. This was due to the fact that Creon had ignored divine law and created civil law so nobody shall touch the attackers body.
  • This all due to the fact that she covered Polyneices body even if Creon had forbidden the act, and now her "reward" is to be punished by death. By doing something that should have been done already.
  • In this cell it is practically stating that she could lose a husband, or a child shed always to be able to retrieve another but since both of Antigone's parents have passed she can not ever have another living brother on this earth.
