He needed the stuff we have in modern day called a safe chamber and a place to have someone watch over him so he didn’t try to do so many deadly and sad things in his life. Sometimes life hits like a truck and makes you feel worthless like Poe did, but he would have made his life better if he tried to become better and happier with his life rather than keep looking back into his past. Imagine if Poe had a happy life and if he had happy poems how different we would think of him and all that he does.

Creon disagrees strongly and becomes inflamed towards Haemon. Another flaw of Creon is that he is a hypocrite who does not stick to his own words, thus perjuring himself. In his initial speech he says “ - a man who does not take the best advice there is - such a man is the very worst of men and always will be.”. But later in the play Creon doesn’t listen to the advice of those around him, in the most basic sense he is saying that he is the worst of men.

He 's afraid of the way the glass will fall--soon--it will be a spectacle: the fall of a crystal palace. But coming down in total blackout, without one glint of light, only great invisible crashing.
