Do you see my sorrow? Can you feel my pain? You may have lost your son, but you're the one to blame. My sister's dead, my mother, father, brothers too. Antigone was brave and strong; did she deserve to die? Or your dearest son, forced upon his blade. I cannot defy you Uncle, but you do not deserve that throne. The one my father used. You can take a new wife, to give you a new son, but a sister? It can't be done. I may be timid, Creon, but may Zeus hear me now, your tragedy has just begun.
