At the beginning of the play, Antigone is disobedient and defies creon’s order and buries her brother. Antigone says, “Help me lift the body up.” (p2) This proves that Antigone is disobedient because she was told not to bury her brother and she did it anyways. Antigone says “My own brother And yours I will! If you will not, I will; I shall not prove disloyal.” (p2) This confirms that Antigone went behind creon’s
In Antigone, there was two brothers who shared being the King and one of the brothers, Polynices, wanted to start a war with the kingdom because he wanted to be the main ruler. Polynices and his brother Eteocles fight and they both end up killing each other. Their Uncle Creon, who takes position as King when they are both killed, decides that only Eteocles will have a proper burial and Polynices will be left to rot. Antigone, Polynices and Eteocles sister, thinks that Creon’s decision is unfair and takes upon herself to give Polynices a proper burial. When their other sister Ismene finds out, she is stuck between helping her sister bury their brother and following Creon’s demands.
Significantly, in Part 4, Faulkner uses Homer Barron 's corpse rotting in a room filled with "invisible dry dust" as a symbol; Emily thought of Homer like a rose, one she expected to endure long after being picked, even after his body was corrupted by the decay of time. Hence, ‘A Rose for Emily’. Notably, Faulkner uses profound imagery to summon a decrepit atmosphere, as the theme is reiterated: accept it or not, change and decay are inevitable. This change Emily always refuses, as we have seen through her father’s death, in leaving the home untouched, and certainly through her murder of Homer to allow their relationship to continue. In this case, Emily attempts to freeze time The Theme of Change vs Decay in ‘A Rose for Emily’ by Faulkner by not acknowledging the death of her father and prospective abandonment by her suitor.
Emotional Consequences The primary leader of India’s Independence, Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding.” Supporting Gandhi, if someone lets their anger and intolerance control how they perceive things, they won’t understand the correct point of view. In the Theban play Antigone, written by the Greek philosopher, Sophocles, the King of Thebes, Creon, refuses to properly bury the dead body of his nephew, thus he cannot pass on to his after life.

Antigone is put at a disposition at the beginning of the work as she is a woman trying to voice her opinion in a time where men were only heard. Some may attribute her lack of voicing to her arrogant attitude, possibly rightly so, developed from the sequence of events in the work. Antigone felt entitled to bury her brother; she felt entitled that her voice be heard. She went against Creon’s command and tried to bury her brother. Antigone scorns Creon at the beginning of the play during questioning by back-talking and arrogantly answering Creon.
They even go as far as to accuse her of being inclined to trouble like her father after they discover she buried her brother, Polyneices. However, as Antigone is led to her living tomb by the guards, the Chorus expresses sympathy towards her. After Creon receives advice from Teiresias, the Chorus insists that he take it, reminding Creon that Teiresias is never wrong. Creon finally agrees, but is too late. Because of the Chorus's initially submissive behavior, Antigone is left alone to defend her beliefs, leading her to her tragic death.
In the play called Antigone which was written by Sophocles, the two characters of the play, Antigone and Creon, both stand in clear opposition to one another. In the play one of the men named Polyneices, the nephew of Creon and the brother of Antigone has been declared a traitor of Thebes and will be left dead on the battlefield with no burial. Antigone would much rather die than to let her brother be without a proper burial, but Creon believes that civil law is absolute. King Creon believes that Antigone’s brother should be considered a traitor and should be punished accordingly. He states that, “Polyneices, who broke his exile to come back with fire and sword against his native city and the shrines of his father’s gods .
To begin with, Ismene is trying to calm her sister down in her speech, stating “Why rush to extremes? It’s madness, madness” (Lines 80 & 81). In this speech of Antigone, however, we see her trying to incite anger and guilt in Ismene. This is shown when Antigone asks Ismene if she’s going to be a coward and not help, or be worth her royal blood and help Antigone bury Polynices. Another major difference was the use of Polynices as a persuasive method.
Not to mention when Danforth is asking if letting Proctor’s wife live longer, then will he drop the case. Proctor declines this agreement and seeks to free those he deems are falsely accused. As can be seen Proctor is a selfless man who will sacrifice what he loves for the betterment of others. Months of torture didn’t break Proctor’s will, and this is shown in great detail as John tears up his confession. As soon as Proctor is given the chance to live and abandon his friends, he is unsure.
Emilia begins to question the behavior of men (but not yet Iago) when she stands up to Othello. When Othello starts to rudely interrogate Emilia about Desdemona’s fidelity to him, Emilia defends Desdemona saying, “she is honest… If you think other, remove your thought” (4.2.12-14). She finds her voice and realizes that she should use it to stand up for justice. She also knows that someone has “devised [the] slander” (4.2.133) against Desdemona, but fails to realize it was Iago. Therefore, she has also fails to recognize the abuse in her own marriage and has still not found her own
“This, by his voice, should be a Montague...What! Dares the slave come hither covered with an antic face, To fleer and scorn at our solemnity? Now, by the stock and honor of my kin, To strike him dead I hold it not a sin,” (Act 1, Scene 5, Lines 53-58 ). This scene shows that Tybalt will take any chance he has to kill a Montague, as long as it 's not a sin; thus also showing that he has such a strong sense of honor towards his family. Seeing how Tybalt is described in the original play, both directors made sure that Tybalt’s performance would be as similar to how he’s depicted in the play, to establish Tybalt as the main antagonist in their films.
