Some may argue that it was not his fault that he was killed, for the prolonged feud between the two households, Montague and Capulet, could be considered the reason for the fight and death. In being rivals for so long, the households grew to violently despise the other. This led to Tybalt's desire to duel with Romeo, for he hated him for no reason except his last name. If the households were not enemies, neither would Tybalt and Romeo. Mercutio, right before his death, said, “A plague o’ both your houses!
“Whatever I touch has come to nothing.” Creon shouted this when he met his downfall. Antigone is about a princess named Antigone who buried her brother for moral beliefs. This was illegal at the time in the city of Thebes because the first thing that Creon did as king was make the law that no one can bury Polyneices and she was sentenced to death for this. Creon, king of Thebes, filled the prophecy and met his downfall with everyone he cared about had died and lead him to emotional death.
Now they think of him as worse because of the lies that escaped from Tybalt’s lips into the ears of the citizens. It became worse for Romeo when it was said that he was the one who had killed Tybalt.

How would you feel if you were locked away to rot by one of your own family members because you did something they didn’t approve of? In Sophocles play, Antigone, this is just the case for the niece of Creon, King of Thebes. After getting word that her “own two brothers [...] slaughtered one another and brought about their common doom” (Sophocles 318), Antigone is distraught. What makes her infuriated is when she learns that her uncle, Creon, has decided that one of her brothers, Eteocles, will receive a proper burial and be honored while the other brother, Polyneices, will receive no burial and be remembered as a traitor. Soon after, Antigone takes action and performs a secret burial and ritual on her dead brothers corpse, but she is also

Tragic heroes characterize tragedies because they tell the tragic story of those heroes and their tragic flaws. In the book Antigone written by Sophocles, we are met with many characters of the book, and the tragic hero is depicted into two characters, Antigone and Creon. We see the tragic death of Antigone as she took her life in the end of the book, and Creon the king of Thebes, who also faces his tragedy in the book. To begin with, Antigone tells the story that depicts the tragedy of Antigone, who also seems to be the tragic hero.
Hamartia and Hubris "It is never reason never to yield to reason"-Sophocles, Antigone. Creon is Antigone's tragic hero as well as the antagonist. Like many other tragic heroes, Creon's tragic flaw that causes his destruction is hubris, excessive pride in oneself. At the end, Creon faced the loss of both his wife and son, and he suffered from pain and regret. Although he thought he is making the right decisions, King Creon misused his power and caused the termination of others' life.
Creon Should Look up “Irony” in the Dictionary “That’s what men pray for- obedient children growing up at home who will pay back their father’s enemies, evil to them for evil done to him, while honouring his friends as much as he does.” (Lines 728-732) These words were spoken by Creon as he conversed with his son, Haemon, about the fate of Antigone, Haemon’s fiancee, as well the one who was declared an enemy by Creon. Creon thinks that Antigone is an enemy, though Haemon tries to reason him by telling him his own ideas and those of the people of the town in which he rules, Thebes. This, however only adds gasoline to an already lit fire, and it only gets worse from there.
Creon’s conflict involves two choices that seem equally righteous--that is, between the stability of the state an obedience to divine law. He thinks Polyneices is attacking the state and he wants to defend it by declaring, “He is to have no grave, no burial, [n]o mourning from anyone; it is forbidden.” (165-167) With this edict, he is opposing the gods’ law. Creon’s tragic flaw is his hubris, or excessive pride, and he makes three errors in judgement, not allowing the proper burial of Polyneices, sentences Antigone to death, and unwilling to listen to advice. Creon’s actions portrays him as an arrogant and narcissistic tyrant whom caused the downfall of himself and intense suffering from guilt because of his subsequent punishment.
The play, Antigone, is a tragedy written by the Greek poet Sophocles. A common theme among tragedies is that they have a tragic hero, and Antigone is no different. The tragic hero of this poem is Creon, the King of Thebes. Creon is faced with the difficult task of punishing his niece, Antigone. She has broken one of his laws stating that no one is to give proper burial rites to Polyneices, Antigone’s brother, because he tried to overthrow Creon.
