“The one in the grave before her death, the other, dead, denied the grave. This is your crime.” (scene 5 lines 80-83). Tragically, Creon did not change his mind until it was too late. Finally, he realized, “the laws of the gods are mighty, and a man must serve them to the last day of his life!” He intended to free Antigone, but in the vault, Antigone committed suicide and Haimon followed. When Creon’s wife heard her son was dead, she killed herself as well.
Fatherless Children are Destined for Doom Fatherless: having no father because he is dead or absent from the home. Fatherlessness is becoming a natural thing for many children in the United States; this is not okay. Fatherlessness leads to gang association, drug/alcohol intake, young pregnancies, violence, and dropping out of school. If women would wait for decent men and get married first, and men would get married first and take roles in their children’s lives many of these issues would resolve themselves. Many of these things can be avoided if you wait for a committed man.

She uses pathos by talking about her sons, and that they’ll have to live without their mother. The only explanation they’ll have is that AIDS took her life. Nobody tried to save her, but instead let a disease kill her that could have been stopped. Her farewell to her boys is her last and most effective point of the whole speech.

Using the premise for P.D. James’ novel “The Children of Men”, Samuel Scheffler, in his lectures on “Death and the Afterlife”, explores reactions to the hypothetical scenario of a world where human beings have become infertile, with no recorded birth having occurred in more than twenty-five years.

It is highly unlikely that an injured baby, left out to die of exposure on a pathless road, would be able to survive, however Fate could not be circumvented--Oedipus survived, grew up, and moved inexorably forwards his fate’s
