  • Prologue
  • If you can do it; but you're bound to fail.
  • When I have TRIED and failed, I shall have failed
  • Parados
  • The army of Polynices was gathered against us, In angry dispute his voice waas lifted against us, Like a ravening bird of prey he swooped around us
  • Scene 1
  • But if you fail to find The doer of this deed, you'll learn one thing: Ill-gotten gain brings no one any good.
  • Well, heaven send they find him. But whether or no, They'll not find me again, that's sure.
  • Now tell me, in as few words as you can, Did you know the order forbidding usch an act?
  • Antigone tells Ismene of what happened to their brothers, and how Polynices wasn't buried. She asks Ismene for her help, but Ismene refuses because she thinks it'll end up in both of them dying and wants to conform to civil law.
  • Scene 2
  • I knew it, naturally. It was plain enough
  • The Chorus talks about the battle and how Polynices and Eteocles killed each other.
  • Scene 3
  • You'll never marry her this side of death. Is that a threat, you impudent-
  • Then, if she dies, she does not die alone. It is a threat
  • Creon talks to his council about the state, and says many things which allude to the fact that he is very different from how he was in Oedipus Rex. He also talks with the Sentry who informs him of Polynices being buried. Creon then threatens the Sentry that if the perpetrator is not found, the Sentry will be the the most suspicious person and tortured.
  • Scene 4
  • If this is God's will, I shall learn my lesson In death; but if my enemies are wrong, I wish them no worse punishment than mine.
  • Antigone is caught while trying to re-bury Polynices and brought to Creon, whom she argues with, saying that even the people under him agree with her. Creon refuses and does not listen. Ismene comes in and begs to be given Antigone's punishment, but Antigone refuses to give her the honor (and punishment) for burying their brother.
  • Creon speaks with his son, Haemon, and tells him that Antigone, his bride, will be executed. Haemon is very respectful at first, but when Creon refuses to listen to Haemon's request that he should listen to others, things go bad. The Chorus agrees with Haemon, but Creon does not, and says that Antigone will still be buried. Haemon says that if Antigone dies, she won't die alone, and Creon says that she won't only die, she'll be buried alive.
  • Antigone is walking to her place of death while speaking to the Chorus as he tells her that her death will be very important and a "good" death. She compares her death to the death of the daughter of Tantalus. Antigone has one final argument with Creon, cursing him to suffer no punishment worse than hers if he is wrong.
