Let her die before his eyes,” Creon threatens Haimon to kill Antigone, “Here, this instant, with her bridegroom before her!” (Sophocles Scene 3, 137-39). During this quarrel, Haimon stays calm while on the other hand, Creon angrily disputes with him due to his arrogance. Additionally, Creon argues that an adolescence, like his son, does not have as much experience as an adult, like himself.
