Storyboard Text

  • The Thebans repulsed each assault, but in the course of battle, Eteocles and Polyneices killed each other.
  • Creon then became king of Thebes and gave Eteocles, his ally, a hero's burial. Creon considered Polyneices a traitor, so he decreed that his body be left unburied, to rot in the sun outside the city gates. To the Greeks, this was a terrible punishment: Their holiest laws demanded that certain burial rites be performed, or else the soul of the dead person would be condemned to eternal unrest.
  • This is the basis of Creon's conflict with the strong-willed Antigone. As you will see, she believes that God's laws must be obeyed, whatever the consequences.
