1. Interpret lines 2 – 5. How do they relate to our play?2. In Greek drama the scene does not change (all of
takes place in front of the palace). Thus, actionthat might take place elsewhere must be reported by a messenger of some kind. What news does the messenger bring?3. Who is Eurydice?4. What did Creon and the messenger do before going to Antigone’s vault?5. What does Creon see when he arrives at the tomb? What has happened to Antigone?6. Creon begs for Haimon’s forgiveness (“I come to you on my knees” (line 67)). Why do you think Haimonresponds as he does (spitting in his father’s face and lunging at him with his sword)?
