One of Antigone 's tragic flaws is her loyalty to the gods and, conversely, her disloyalty to King Creon. At the beginning of the play, Creon puts out an order that Antigone 's brother, Polynices, may not be buried because he was a traitor. This is unacceptable to Antigone, and she is determined to honor the gods and give her brother a rightful burial, even if it means being executed for disobeying Creon 's orders. Antigone 's determination to honor the gods and her brother is one of her
The irony of withholding a proper burial from one brother, and not the other, for political reasons, leads to Antigone’s defiance of the law of the King. Antigone decides to bury Polyneices, so he can be granted a safe passage into the world of the dead, and even after hearing the disapproval of her sister Ismene, who is scared of what Creon will do to Antigone once he finds out, she says, “I have longer to please the dead than please
He did not want to bury his own nephew, he wanted to kill Antigone for burying Polyneices, and tried to kill his own brother because the kingdom had a curse on it. He had too much power and needed to calm down and think what he was doing. Antigone knew that this was the right to do and did without being afraid or sorry for it. She was helping Creon, Ismene, and the community, and they did not realize that she was helping them until it was too
Because of the infamous reputation of her family nobody wants to befriend her ; the white people rejects her because she belongs to the white trash and the blacks refuses to reach out to her since she’s a white and her family is real trouble.

But she also used the stereotypes to help her cause in the court knowing that the all white jury will never believe a negro she did not change her testimony but enforced the helplessness that characterizes the women in that era to get rid of the guilt .

The miller’s daughter Malyne falls victim to the patriarchy’s denial of her personage, both through her father’s and law student Aleyn’s relegation of her as property. The latter denies her a chance to consent during the assault, as though she is an inanimate object that he may use how he pleases. As a woman under medieval law, she is her father’s property rather than a person of her own accord, meaning that a suitor does not need her permission but rather that of her owner. However, as Aleyn wishes to exact revenge upon her father, this fungibility allows him to consider his violation of her not as an atrocity against another human being but a crime against her father’s property (Barnett 6). Knowing her father’s theft instigated her assault, Malyne is willing to further the clerks’ revenge upon him to requite his treatment of her as property and, on a much broader scale, counter the patriarchal hegemony that put her virginity up as collateral in the first place.

This is quite evident in the scenes leading up to his departure from the shelter of his aunt’s house. Despite his nationalist view, he doesn’t take upon any responsibility to help the country by finding a job or serving in the fire brigade, which was a trait his aunt despised.
“Either to die the death or to abjure Forever the society of men. Therefore, fair Hermia, question your desires.” (I.i.6.65-70). Dubiously Theseus has more sympathy towards Hermia than her own father and decides to give her a gentle warning, for he knows the consequences of her decision, but even though the stakes are high Hermia refuses to give up her own wishes for that of her selfish father. “There, gentle Hermia, may I marry thee. And to that place the sharp Athenian law Cannot pursue us.
