  • Ismene, we have to do something. Just like Eteocles, Polynices also deserves to be buried.
  • I don't think we should disobey Creon. Burying him is forbidden in the city! I'm afraid we'll get in trouble if we do.
  • *dramatic irony*
  • You deserve to be buried. I'm glad I'm doing this before I die.
  • Antigone?! Stop what you're doing!
  • In the Prologue, Antigone tries to convince Ismene to help her bury her brother, although she remains resistant because of the fear of getting caught
  • Why would you think it's a good idea to do something forbidden by my law?
  • Antigone failed to convince her sister, so she decided she would bury Polynices by herself, and therefore began performing the necessary rites.
  • You have to let Antigone free, or you will pay for her death with that of your loved ones
  • I don't want Haemon or Eurydice to die. I'll be on my way to set her free this instant!
  • The guard catches her red-handed, and plans on taking her to Creon so that he can punish her for her actions.
  • Oh no, I didn't come soon enough. The blind prophet was right! Antigone has died, taking Haemon with her.
  • *person vs. person conflict*
  • Antigone is taken to Creon's palace by the guard, where she is sentenced to death as a punishment for disobeying his law.
  • *dramatic irony*
  • She is placed in a cave, where she will die. However, Tiresias has a prophecy, and if she isn't released before she dies, there will be consequences for Creon
  • *person vs. self conflict*
  • He rushed to the cave to free her, only to find her dead, with Haemon next to her. Her son's death causes Eurydice to do the same. If Creon hadn't been so cruel and hadn't punished her in the first place, none of this would've happened
