Presentation on theme: "MONEY “Money! Nothing worse in our lives, so current, rampant, so corrupting.” -more than half of the average child's weekly allowance is spent on sweets,"— Presentation transcript:

1 MONEY “Money! Nothing worse in our lives, so current, rampant, so corrupting.” -more than half of the average child's weekly allowance is spent on sweets, snacks, games and videos. -the average United Kingdom household spends more each week on alcohol to drink at home than it does on fruit and vegetables. -over half of Americans under 30 expect to be rich some day, but by the time Americans reach the age of 65, only 8% have that dream. “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s need, but not every man’s greed.” - Gandhi

2 1. Select one of the following themes and a quote that represents your chosen theme -Leadership/Authority -Money/Greed -Discipline/Slavery -Tyranny -Women as inferior -Submission to gods Lines “Of course…” Lines “Death is the…” Lines “Money! Nothing…” Lines “Then you can…” Lines “And I’ve known…” Lines “These citizens…” Line 612 “I have no love…” Lines “True, my king…” Lines “Therefore we…” Lines “Whoever thinks…” Lines “But once the…” Lines “Believe me…” Lines “Wisdom is…”

3 Many people say that money is the root of all evil. Creon echoes this in lines 335 and 336. He says to the leader, “Money! Nothing worse in our lives, so current, rampant, so corrupting.” This is Creon’s way of saying that money has the ability to make people do what they would not normally do. He believes that people’s greed forces them to sacrifice their own morals as well as break the law. Creon says this when he is convinced that the burial of Polynieces was a crime committed because of a bribe and a conspiracy against him. He believes that money encouraged the perpetrator of this crime and therefore he states his frustration against money. This reminds me of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory because all of the winners of the golden ticket are approached by a man who asked if they will steal some Everlasting Gobstoppers while they’re in the factory. He tries to bribe them with money. Some of the children in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory fall for the bribe which proves that money does have power over people but Charlie and Antigone have other motivations for their actions. Charlie does not go to the chocolate factory to get rich and Antigone does not bury her brother for money. This is to say that while some people let greed control their actions, others act out of compassion and love. The hands reaching for the money and the greed poster represent the other children in Willy Wonka who wanted the money and were bribed. It also represents what Creon believes- people will do anything for money. The unhappy man is the man who tested to see if the children could be swindled. Just like this man believed the children could be influenced by money, Creon believed that some of his people were motivated solely by money. The picture of two men with money behind their backs represents how bribes are often done secretively. The man in Willy Wonka approaches the children secretively and Creon believes some of his people are burying Polynieces behind his back. The man carrying the money bag demonstrates how money can consume people. The children were being asked to do something immoral and some of them were up for it because they were consumed by the idea of money. In Creon’s mind some of his people were doing something immoral for money.
