Antigone is correct for bold rebellion to bury her brother because she loyal to her family and to the gods. Antigone will always be loyal to her brother no matter what anyone says, even her uncle. According to the play, Antigone says, “Ismene I am going to bury him. Will you come?’’ (P.30) What she is trying to say is that it doesn 't matter what anybody says about her brother being buried she is still going to be loyal, even if her brother is dead. some may say that she should not be loyal what Creon said.
But I will bury him; and if I must die, 55 I say that this crime is holy: I shall lie down With him in death, and I shall be as dear To him as he is to me” (Sophocles 752). Through this, it is clear Antigone is expressing she does not care about the consequences that might occur, since she loves her brother and will do anything for him. By making this statement, Antigone is both attempting to persuade Ismene to join her and make her feel ashamed or remorseful that she will not stand up for her own brother. This indicates that Antigone believes Ismene does not love Polyneice,s since she will not help in the act of burying him. However, even with the consequences and her sister choosing not following her, Antigone still sticks to her beliefs and follows through on her plan.

These people would be wrong because towards the end of Act IV, John died for his wife, and that is being very loyal. For example, in The Crucible John is seen as loyal because he loves his wife, and is willing to do anything to get rid of Abigail, and break up the relationship between John and Abigail. Proctor says, “...” This makes John loyal because obviously he cares about his marriage, and he does not want some little girl ruining that. He feels that maybe if he shows Elizabeth that he does not care for Abigail anymore, does not want anything to do with her, and is completely done with her he could gain her trust back. John Proctor is also loyal because he died for the love of his wife.

One of Antigone 's tragic flaws is being loyal to the gods and her disloyalty to Creon. At the beginning of the play, Creon puts out an order that Polyneices, Antigone 's brother, may not be buried because he was a traitor. Antigone is not going to put up with this, she is going to honor the gods and give her brother, Polyneices, and rightful burial, even if it means being executed for her doing. Antigone 's determination to honor the gods and her brother is one of her tragic
Then comes Antigone, the girl who thinks she has the right to act against the law. This poses a moral dilemma for Creon, as Antigone is his niece, the last of the descendants of Oedipus. However, Antigone makes the decision easier by explicitly taking pride in her actions and slighting his uncle. Her justification is merely that Creon’s law is not the mandate of her God, and that the burial of a family is more imperative than all else (500-523). When confronted by Creon with Polynices’ treacherous crime, she cannot put up any defense.
Her actions, which go against King Kreon’s decree, speak volumes to what is most important to her- respecting her family. This rebellion is easy to sympathize with because she goes about rejecting an unjust order in a peaceful and respectable way. Antigone is a young, yet experienced character in the play. She is the daughter of Oedipus and Jocasta, who share one of the cruelest and most twisted stories in Greek mythology. On top of that, her brothers Eteokles and Polyneices killed each other in battle, over a land dispute.
In reaction, his niece Antigone disobeys the law and buries her brother out of loyalty to her family. Creon is now faced with the decision to uphold the law or pardon his family. Despite Creon’s right decision to uphold the law, his family perishes at their own hand. Creon’s decision to punish Antigone is a right decision and is one that any good leader would make. He is not an evil man but one who is looking out for the state.
