Prologue: Antigone asks her sister iseme for help in burying her brother to honor the gods. Iseme refuses to help her in fear of Creon. Parados: The chorus talks about the battle between the two brothers, Polynecies and Eteocles, who fought to the death for the crown. Scene 1: A messenger brings news that someone has defied Creon's law and buried Polynecies. Scene 2: Creon confronts Antigone about the burial and she admits to it. She claims that she was honoring God's law. Scene 3: Haemon and Creon get into a heated argument regarding Antigone, the gods law, and civil law. Scene 4: Antigone makes a speech in front of the people of Thebes as a plea. Creon vouches to lock her in a tomb until she starves to death, because he fears the gods and will not murder his own kin.
