Effects Of Stubbornness In Antigone

216 Words1 Page
Power has a negative effect because it causes people to be stubborn and argue in such a competitive manner. First of all, when people in power feel challenged or questioned, they allow stubbornness to over take their reasoning. For example, when Creon makes his edict he did not realize that someone close to him would have such an issue with it, to the point where nothing was accomplished about Antigone and her trying to bury her brother. The only thing other than that was just arguing within the family, only tearing their family farther apart than it already was. In the text it shows how during the intensive argument about Antigone breaking the Edict between Creon and his son Haimon, Haimon calls his Creon king instead of fatherly names.
