What do these lines suggest about how the
gods view Creon’s refusal to allow Polyneices to
be buried?
“I tell you, Creon, you yourself have brought
this new calamity upon us. Our hearths and

and carrion birds that glut themselves on the
corpse of Oedipus’ son. The gods are deaf when
we pray to them. . .”
What do these lines suggest about Creon’s view
of himself and the gods?

of God himself—should carry him stinking bit
by bit to heaven, I would not yield. I am not
afraid of pollution: No man can defile (dirty) the
gods.”
