Storyboard Text

  • Antigone and Ismene enter from the central door of the palace.
  • Listen, Ismene: Creon buried our brother Eteoclees with military honors, and it was right he should; but Polyneices, who fought as bravely and died as miserably,- they say Creon has sworn no one shall bury or mourn for him, and now yo prove if you are a true sister, or a traitor to your family.
  • Ah sister! Oedipus died, everyone hating him, but oh think how much more terrible our own death would be if we go against Creon and do what he has forbidden! We are only women. We cannot fight with men Antigone! Ibeg the dead to forgive me, but I am helpless.
  • If that is what you think, I should not want you. You can be what you want to be, but I will bury him. It is the dead, not the living, who make the longest demands. Apparently the laws of the gods mean nothing to you. Go away Ismene: I shall be hating you soon, and the dead will too. I am not afraid of the danger. It will not be the worst of deaths-death without honor.
  • They mean a great del to me; but I have no strength to break the laws that were made for the public good. Go then, if you feel that you must. You are unwise, but a loyal friend indeed to those who love you. 
  • Exit: Antigone goes off left
