Storyboard Text

  • Antigone´s loyalty to her brother is more to her than her own life-She is not scared of Creon´s laws and would die with no fear.
  • ¨But I will bury him: and if I must die, I say this crime holy:I shall lie down with him in death, I shall be as dear to him as he to me."Line(s) 55-58
  • In this scene, Haemon, Creon's son, values family loyalty more than his own marriage. 
  • "You are my guide, you make things clear for me, and I obey you. No marriage means more to me than your continuing wisdom." Line(s) 9-10
  • Antigone refuses Ismene's 'help' in her trial to death and chooses to be loyal to her brother and the gods by telling the truth of how Ismene would not help her.
  • "No, Ismene. You have no right to say so . You would not help me, and I will not have you help me." Line(s) 131-132
  • Antigone feels it is a dishonor to leave her brother unburied and that she´d rather be punished than live with it-Again, she values her family over the law.
  • ¨This death of mine is no importance; but if I had left my brother lying in death unburied, I should have suffered.¨Line(s)69-71
  • In the beginning, Ismene was reluctant to help Antigone, sacred of death and afraid of the law, but now she is willing and ready to die for her brother. The duty of family loyalty was something she didn't understand but now, after some time, she tries to stand by Antigone. 
  • "Do you refuse me, Antigone? I want to die with you:I too have a duty that I must discharge to the dead." Line(s) 137-138
  • "Lead me away.I have been rash and foolish.I have killed my son and wife.I look for comfort; my comfort lies here dead. Whatever my hands have touched has come to nothing. Fate has brought all my pride to a thought of dust." Line(s) 135-138
  • Creon cries for the death of his family. He acknowledges his mistakes and chooses to live with them- rather than kill himself- and stay loyal to the gods/His family by living in solitude as to not dishonor them again.
