This is not right because Antigone was not choosing death, she was choosing to be loyal to family. Creon decided to make a law in which Polyneices, Antigone’s brother could not be buried. If someone broke this law they would be stoned to death in public.

The play, “Macbeth,” by William Shakespeare, is a remarkable tragedy which introduces a different view of marriage, contrary to the norms of society regarding marriage in the medieval era. During this time period, women didn’t have a voice as they were dominated by men in marriages and they were considered to be weak and insignificant humans.
