It is dangerous that the Chorus has divided and a group shows loyalty to Etocles and other group shows loyalty to Polyneices. Thebes was united add devoted to the family as long as the family of Laius was united. But the conflict of the family breaks down the unity. According to Creon, the family is not truly natural community to preserve the loyalty of Thebans as the members kills his own father, kills his own brother for political

On the other hand, Antigone only stands up to her uncle, the king, because she wants to bury and pay her respects to her dead brother, who rebelled against the city. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and “Antigone” share a common theme of refusing to conform to society; however, Huck denies all of society, while Antigone only betrays the king. One similarity between the two characters is they both do what they believe is right, no matter the consequences or repercussions. Huck runs away from the widow and his father, and basically rejects all of society because he wants his freedom. In these actions, Huck demonstrates that he will follow his heart, even though his actions could result in danger and chaos.
Power razes all of its enemies to the ground, and its enemies are ignorant of its presence.Power negatively affects others by turning someone with power on their allies, making the owner paranoid, and diminishing common sense.In Antigone, King Creon turned on his own niece in order to preserve his self-serving law. Power turns the holder onto their allies. Creon created fear in the hearts of his own sentries who selflessly worked hours keeping him safe. After gambling for the right to deliver the news, a lone sentry brazenly travels to tell Creon the news and after being berated says, “you have seen the last of me here…” and briskly walks off (scene I lines 160-163). Creon has disrupted the feeling of trust by misplacing fear in the hearts of the sentry because he wanted his edict to be all-powerful.
Would you follow a law if it serves no purpose to you or others? or if you felt that it was wrong to a certain group or ethnicity? Many people know the story Antigone by Sophocles, a kingdom set in ruins as two brothers end up killing each other over a land given to them by their father. As said in lines 165-175 Creon states “Polyneices, I say, is to have no burial: no man is to touch him or the least prayer for him; he shall lie on the plain, unburied.” Being as how both brothers fought fighting for their beliefs they should both get a proper military honored burial as believed by their sister Antigone. Antigone being the one to fight for her beliefs and obeying the god's laws attempts the burial of Polyneices and goes against Creon’s law to prove to him that he’s in over his head that he has too much pride in himself, in lines 15-35 Antigone claims that she is going to go
In fact, this job was so important that the king's role in administering justice medieval society that law and order began to fall apart whenever the king was away from his own land for a long period of time. The nobles relied on the king to resolve their disagreements; because he was the only person they would accept a
209-211). In this scene, Creon is arguing with his son, who does not believe Antigone has to die for disobeying his father, but Creon is so power hungry he is willing to suppress anyone who is against him, even his son’s fiance. Good people suffer, because rulers like Creon are ruthless tyrants, they are power hungry and will not listen to anyone who disagrees with their
On the bottom of page 262 between lines 212 and 214, Creon says, “For anyone who acts against the state, its enemy, I’d never make my friend.” Because of Creon’s ignorance he was judging Polyneices based on the fact he went to war against him and not on who he is. It developes Creon as a tragic hero because his son dies because he would not let him marry the woman who tried to bury her brother that waged war against him. Another example for ignorance is on between lines 1406 and 1407 when creon says to himself, “mistakes made by a foolish mind, cruel mistakes that bring on death.” Ultimately, Creons ignorance ended up being the reason for his sons death. Creons ignorance brought pain upon him when he wasn’t planning on it and it helped him realize how ignorant he was. Ignorance isn’t something you’d want to be, being ignorant can sometimes be confused with being
Banquo, who had trusted Macbeth and promised to serve him forever, becomes suspicious and is killed by Macbeth’s hired murderers. His best friend’s betrayal of him is not the only backstab in the story. Another disloyalty happens with the “kings” death. Malcolm, the previous king’s eldest son, knew that the trust has been broken, so he and his brother flee to England in order to survive. So when Macduff goes to Malcolm and asks him to take his rightful place, Malcolm answers, “Boundless temperance in nature is a tyranny; it hath been Th’untimely emptying of the happy throne and the fall of many kings” (4.3.
