Storyboard Text

  • Antigone Theme: Rules and Order
  • CREON: Tell me, tell me briefly: Had you heard my proclamation touching this matter? CREON: And yet you dared defy the law.
  • ANTIGONE: It was public. Could I help hearing it? ANTIGONE: I dared. It was not God’s proclamation. That final Justice That rules the world below makes no such laws. Your edict, King, was strong, But all your strength is weakness itself against 360 The immortal unrecorded laws of God. They are not merely now: they were, and shall be, Operative for ever, beyond man utterly
  • Antigone Theme: Rules and Order
  • ANTIGONE: And now you can prove what you are: A true sister, or a traitor to your family. ANTIGONE: Ismene, I am going to bury him. Will you come?
  • ISMENE: Antigone, you are mad! What could I possibly do? ISMENE: Bury him! You have just said the new law forbids it.
  • Antigone Theme: Rules and Order
  • HAIMON:They say no woman has ever, so unreasonably, Died so shameful a death for a generous act: 555 “She covered her brother’s body. Is this indecent? She kept him from dogs and vultures. Is this a crime? Death? ––She should have all the honor that we can give her
  • CREON: This boy, it seems, has sold out to a woman.
  • This scene is where theme of "Rules and Order" come into play. This scene is where Antigone openly admits to defying Creon's proclamation. Antigone was clearly in the right in this situation.
  • This is also another scene where the theme is expressed. This shows the conflict between Antigone's moral law, and Creon's proclamation. Antigone and Ismene disagree on whether they should follow or disobey Creon's demand.
  • This is yet another clash caused by the this theme. Haimon and his father both are fighting because even he sees that it is wrong to punish her for doing the right thing morally
