Malala, as brave as she is, remained calm in the presence of death and let her father know “No one can stop death. It doesn’t matter if it comes from a Talib or from cancer…”(Yousafzai, pg.118) Although her father wasn’t exactly convinced, Malala would continue to fight for what she believes
Antigone, a young woman who’s allegiance was to her family. She believed the gods took precedence over the law. Her desire to get justice for her brother led her to question Creon’s edict. However, going against the political society will ultimately result in destruction for both Antigone and Creon. Antigone chose to follow the gods and bury her brother in
Anne does not persevere by killing like Beowulf, but she is remarkably persistent in always saying what she thinks and not backing down. During World War 1 Anne risked her life to find her husband, Gilbert, who was at war. This is her way of showing her perseverance that even in a time of war; she will risk her life to get to those she loves. Being strong willed is usually a good thing unless it is not controlled and it’ll create a lot of
In addition, Antigone has her own struggle, faceing her uncle King Creon, by herself. Moreover, Antigone was declared the death penalty, on behalf of giving her brother funeral honors. This is a very unruly move, because her brother is considered a traitor to the king and people, which ultimately means he shall not be buried. However, it shows King Creon that Antigone would do anything to modify the law, as well as risking herself, just so her brother has a proper funeral. To emphasize, Antigone responds to King Creon, “ If I die young, I say I’d gain something” (Sophocles 20).
DP1: Within this Narrative, Antigone frequently uses the emotional values of others to convince them of what she believes to be right.The first illustration of this phenomenon is when Antigone compares her willingness to face death as the result of giving her brother an honorable burial, to her sister Ismene 's unwillingness in doing the same.The main character feels as though it is her personal and moral obligation to retrieve the afterlife that’s been taken from her brother.Therefore, she does not agree in abiding by Creon 's man-made legislation and makes it her mission to concede to the laws of the gods. Asking for her sister 's help, she hopes to obtain reliability, only to find her too intimidated by Creon, Their uncle, and king. Accordingly, she says to Ismene “You may do as you like since apparently the laws of the gods mean nothing to you” (Page 192 Sophocles Antigone).This sentence uses two rhetorical appeals. First, Antigone 's most manipulated appeal, pathos is demonstrated specifically when she says “ you may do as you like..” (Page 192 Sophocles Antigone).These words make it seem like Ismene is selfish in preserving herself, unlike Antigone 's decision to do the opposite. Antigone uses comparison to herself to make Ismene appear weak and self-serving in return.
In these actions, Huck demonstrates that he will follow his heart, even though his actions could result in danger and chaos. Similarly, Antigone stands by her brother and wants to bury him out of love and respect, which goes against her uncle’s wishes. Here, Antigone is defying the king, and doesn’t care about the consequences she may endure. She is in full awareness that the consequence for her actions it the death penalty, but is willing to
Antigone is the courageous character of this play because she would accept any consequences for her brother, she would die for him, and let her dream of being a mother and wife vanish. Even though Antigone’s brother committed a crime, he should still be buried like any other family member that committed a crime. The first thing Creon’s does in Antigone is declare a hash but understandable law. Anyone who attempts to honor Polyneices will be sentenced
Though he was an enemy of the Trojans, he was still respected by Aeneas, which showed the true extent to which the Trojans valued auctoritas. Evidence for Paragraph II: Dido was also a non-example of pietas because she killed herself after Aeneas left her, even though he had to leave her in order to fulfill the fate assigned to him by the gods. This showed that she didn't respect the will of the gods above her personal will. In contrast, Creusa exemplified pietas because she told Aeneas that he would find a new wife in the new Troy, which would help him fulfill his fate. This showed that she valued the will of the gods above her own self-interest.
Antigone in the prologue is talking with Ismene about the battle between Polyneices and Eteocles, which definitely stirs up emotions between the two. Ismene says at one point “They mean a great deal to me, but I have no strength To break laws that were made for the public good. (p.60-61)” Ismene wants to bury him, but she fears for her life and doesn’t want to gamble her life to do it. Antigone feels that she should bury her brother and is very willing to do it, as seen when she says “ I am going to bury him...He is my brother. (p.30-33)” The willingness and bravery of Antigone to do what she feels is right in this situation brings out her overall character traits, her stubbornness and passion.
This was not how Antigone thought, she clearly loved her brother and wanted the best for him both in life on Earth and in the Underworld. She told Keron “I’d never let any man’s arrogance bully me into breaking the gods’ laws” (Sophocles lines 496 and 497). This may sound like Antigone showing her morals, but it is in the form of honor. She is telling Keron that the Gods require bodies to be properly buried to be admitted into the Underworld and that the Laws of the Gods and the honor of her family come before the laws made by Keron. Antigone’s Honor is fueled by her anger towards Keron and the way he treated Eteokles and Polyneikes differently.
