The Antigone of Sophocles free pdf Excerpt from The Antigone of Sophocles: Vassar College, 1893 When Polyneices had died in single combat with his brother, Creon the king issued a stern decree that no one should bury the body on penalty of death. His sister Antigone evades the guards and performs funeral rites for her brother. Creon threatens the guards with death, if they do not discover the culprit. They scrape off the dust from the body and keep a careful watch. Antigone comes and when she sees the body laid bare, utters a cry of grief that convicts her. The guards lead her to Creon, and he orders her to be immured alive in a rocky tomb. Antigone hangs herself in the tomb and Haemon, Creon's son and her betrothed, in indignant grief, slays himself by her side, as the seer Teiresias had predicted. Whereupon Eurydice, Creon's wife, slays herself, and so at the end Creon is left mourning the death of son and wife.
