Storyboard Text

  • Scene V
  • You will pay for what you did to Antigone; "corpse for corpse" (Sophocles v. 72). And the gods will punish you. One died before their time and the other was denied a grave. Soon everyone will cry and you'll be cursed.
  • I should not risk it all over my pride. I will do it! A man must serve the gods's laws to the end.
  • Pæan
  • "The shadow of plague is upon us" (Sophocles Pæan. 15). 
  • Help us, gods!
  • Exodus
  • This is the curse; you have to live with your family's deaths on your hands.
  • To be happy, one must follow the gods rules and be wise. In old age, proud men figure out how to be wise.
  • My rash and foolishness has killed my wife and son. Do I get to die, as well?
  • I was blinded by my pride.
  • Scene IV
  • I'm not welcome in my own land. "Be witnesses for me, denied all pity, unjustly judged" (Sophocles iv. 29-30).
  • There is a war brewing and people are coming to fight.
  • Ode IV
  • "But in her marriage deathless Fate found means" (Sophocles Ode iv. 35-6).
  • Antigone has hung herself in her vault. Haimon killed himself, which caused his mother to also kill herself. Creon is left alone.
  • Scene V
  • Listen to this prophet; you brought this trouble upon yourself. "All men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil. The only crime is pride" (Sophocles v. 33-5). You must yield.
  • I welcome my death now.
  • Antigone is on her way to her end.
  • The Chorus speaks about the power of fate by relaying old tales.
  • Creon will be cursed for not letting Polyneices be buried and for throwing Antigone into a vault. He decides in order to stop the curse, he'll bury Polyneices and free Antigone.
  • So are Kings. "Wisdom outweighs any wealth" (Sophocles v. 56).
  • No you are wrong and you're a sad man for selling your wisdom for money. Prophets are greedy.
  • I will not pay you for what you say.
