Read the excerpt below from the play Antigone by Sophocles and answer the question that follows.

Now victory with her glorious name
has come, bringing joy to well-armed Thebes.
The battle's done—let's strive now to forget
with songs and dancing all night long,
with Bacchus leading us to make Thebes shake.

What imagery is used in these lines? How does it reveal the speaker's tone and affect the mood of the audience?
