Storyboard Text

  • Ismene and Antigone are sad about their brothers being killed in the battle. One brother gets buried and one does not. They come up with a plan to bury him even though it is against Creon's law.
  • "I am going to bury him. Will you come?(31)
  • "You just said the law forbids it."(32)
  • Ismene and Antigone are discussing the plan. Antigone wants Ismene to come with her but Ismene is too scared. She is too weak to bury her own brother.
  • "They mean a great deal to me; but I have no strength to break laws that were made for the public good."(63-64)
  • "That must be your excuse, I suppose. But as for me. I will bury my brother I love."(64-65)
  • "Polyneices, I say, is to have no burial: no man is to touch him or say the least prayer for him;"(39-40)
  • Creon is stating the law that must be followed in order to be safe from punishment. Antigone breaks the law that he said in public and recieved a punishment for he doing. All of the people are scared of Creon and follow the laws.
  • Sentry brings Antigone to Creon and Creon can't believe that she would do something like that. Antigone doesn't deny she didn't do it and she is proud of what she has done.
  • "Here is the one who did it! We caught her in the very act of burying him."(3-4)
  • "But this is Antigone! Why have you brought her here?(18)
  • Ismene wouldn't help Antigone to bury him so Antigone doesn't want Ismene to be punished.
  • "No, Ismene. You have no right to say so. You would not help me and I will not have you help me."(131-132)
  • "I am guilty."(130)
  • Haemon is loyal to his dad and obeys his laws.
  • "You are my guide. You make things clear for me, and I obey you."(8-9)
