Storyboard Text

  • I have found the one who broke your law.
  • "But this is Antigone!"
  • After those terrible threats of yours we uncovered the traitor and waited. Antigone showed herself after a dust storm and we took her into custody at once without resistance.
  • It was public, I didn't exactly have a choice at hearing your decree.
  • Did you not hear my proclamation?
  • "Here is the one who did it!" page 825 line 3 "But this is Antigone!" page 825 line 20 Here Creon is trying to figure out what is going on, after all he wouldn't have expected his niece to be so openly defiant.
  • It was not God's proclamation. Your edict was strong but irrelevant against the laws of gods.
  • You heard my proclamation and decided to disobey my law regardless.
  • "A storm of dust roared up from the earth. and the sky went out..." and "We ran and took her at once." Page 826 lines 26 and 48-50 The sentry is now recalling how he and his comrades caught Antigone through the dust storm and how she did not resist capture.
  • I've always known that I will die, if I must now then the end result will be no different. I think of death as a friend now and if I must die now then I will die in peace with my brother.
  • (laughing, stifled and quietly) Let's get you inside, the sun has clearly gotten to your head.
  • "...Had you not heard my proclamation touching this matter?" "It was public. Could I help hearing it?" Pages 826 & 827 lines 62 and 63 In this scene Creon is attempting to discern if Antigone is openly defiant or just dense. Antigone shows in strides that she is actually defiant or his law.
  • Smile at me, think I'm a fool if it suits you; but it may well be that a fool convicts me of folly.
  • "And yet you dared defy the law." "It was not God's proclamation...Your edict, King, was weakness itself against the immortal unrecorded laws of God." Page 827 lines 64-69 Antigone is exhibiting her reasoning for defying Creon's law by stating that the laws of gods supersede the laws of man.
  • "I knew I must die...Now before it is my time...think Death less than a friend? ...if I had left my brother...unburied, I should have suffered. Now I do not." Page 827 lines 73-81 In this scene Antigone is attempting to remove Creon's leverage by revealing that she is not afraid to die and in fact embraces death.
  • "You smile at me. Ah Creon, think me a fool, if you like; but it may well be that a fool convicts me of folly." Page 827 lines 82-84 In this final slide Antigone calls Creon out on being hypocritical. He thinks that she is crazy while she thinks he is prideful and blind in the same way Oedipus was before he gouged his eyes out.
