Storyboard Text

  • Peripeteia
  • Choragus
  • But Antigone?
  • I will carry her far away. Out there in the wilderness, and lock her Living in a vault of stone.
  • Creon
  • Antigone
  • Peripeteia
  • Haimon
  • Messenger: We obeyed; and in the cavern’s farthest corner. We saw her lying: She had made a noose of her fine linen veil And hanged herself. Haimon lay beside hers, His arms about her waist, lamenting her, His love lost under ground, crying out
  • Peripeteia
  • Antigone
  • Messenger: When Creon saw him the tears rushed to his eyes amd he called to him: “What have you done, child? Speak to me.  What are you thinking that makes your eyes so stranger? O my son, my son, I come to you on my knees!” But Haimon spat in his face. He said not a word, Staring–– And suddenly drew his sword And lunged. Creon shrank back, the blade missed; and the boy, Desperate against himself , drove it half its length Into his own side, and fell.
  • This was a sudden change in circumstances because: at first Creon wanted to kill Antigone in front of Haimon but now he wants to lock her up in a cave. He changed his mind because Choragus said earlier "are you sure that's the best idea (paraphrasing)" 
  • The Role of Women
  • Our own death would be if we should go against Creon And do what he has forbidden! We are only women, We cannot fight with men, Antigone! The law is strong, we must give in to the law. In this thing, and in worse.
  • This scene was definetely a clear example of peripeteia. Manly because it wasn't expected by the readers or Creon. Haimon loved her and wanted to resue her but it was too late. Antigones death had an important effect on everyone in the story. 
  • The Role of Women
  • There are places enough for him to push his plow. I want no wicked women for my sons!
  • O dearest Haimon, how your father wrong you!
  • This scene came right after the last one. I believe this one was the most dramatic in the whole play. This scene demonstrates peripeteia because Haimon was going to kill his father at first...... THEN he suddenly killed himself instead. This changed the whole play causing Creon to feel heavy grief and The Queen to kill herself. 
  • The Role of Women
  • You, there, take them away and guard them well: For they are but women, and even brave men run when they see Death coming.
  • Creon
  •  This scene speaks for itself. Ismene says "we are only women." Back in the day women didn't stand up to men or challenge men at all which is why Ismene says "We cannot fight with men."
  • Ismene
  • Antigone
  • In this scene Ismene seemed more worried Haimon than his own sister. In this time even women looked down on eachother which demonstrates how the role of women is showed in this book.
  • Creon
  • Haimon
  • Ismene
  • Antigone
  • Creon says in this scene: "for they are but women." Already you can infer that he thinks men are superior by saying that. He also automatically assumes that Antigone and Ismene are going to run especially because they're women by saying "and even brave men run when they see death coming." 
  • Eurydice
  • Creon
  • Choragus
  • Antigone
