Antigone in the prologue is talking with Ismene about the battle between Polyneices and Eteocles, which definitely stirs up emotions between the two. Ismene says at one point “They mean a great deal to me, but I have no strength To break laws that were made for the public good. (p.60-61)” Ismene wants to bury him, but she fears for her life and doesn’t want to gamble her life to do it. Antigone feels that she should bury her brother and is very willing to do it, as seen when she says “ I am going to bury him...He is my brother. (p.30-33)” The willingness and bravery of Antigone to do what she feels is right in this situation brings out her overall character traits, her stubbornness and passion.
Then he wandered back to his uncle’s home. When he got there he was not given a warm welcome, but rather he saw his uncle mourning his death. With this thought of his uncle in hand and an abundant hate for the English already, he decided to give birth to the vengeful angel that they needed to lead the
Do you know it? Have you heard it?/Don 't you notice when evils due to enemies/are headed towards those we love?" (Antigone, Line 8-12) Antigone proves her familial loyalty when, after her brothers kill each other, King Creon states that only one of the brothers is to be buried. The other brother is dishonored and must be left to rot. Antigone defies Creon 's orders and buries her fallen brother in spite of the law forbidding the act.
They even go as far as to accuse her of being inclined to trouble like her father after they discover she buried her brother, Polyneices. However, as Antigone is led to her living tomb by the guards, the Chorus expresses sympathy towards her. After Creon receives advice from Teiresias, the Chorus insists that he take it, reminding Creon that Teiresias is never wrong. Creon finally agrees, but is too late. Because of the Chorus's initially submissive behavior, Antigone is left alone to defend her beliefs, leading her to her tragic death.
In ‘The Interlopers’ we see both Georg Znaeym and Ulrich von Gradwitz each wish the other to die, “as men each prayed that misfortune might fall on the other...”. As it would turn out, misfortune falls upon them both, fulfilling each man’s request in a twisted and ironic way that neither anticipated. ‘The Story of an Hour’ shows irony in another way. At the beginning, we are told that Louise Mallard’s husband has died and her friends fear that she might die from the shock of the news. However, at the end she does die of shock when she finds out that her husband has not died.
Proctor exclaims when asked why he is not willing to give them the confession that he has given them his soul, but his name is what lives on after death. He feels he has lied for too long and refuses to do so any longer. Elizabeth responds, feeling a mixture of relief and dread as her husband is hanged. He has provided his weary soul with a taste of relief and goodness, whilst condemning himself to death. When it has become evident that he will sacrifice his life in exchange for his honor, Elizabeth follows suit, begging them to let him keep his reputation if he is to be
On the other hand Antonio finds justice unachieved by the loss of his grandmother and dear friends. He prays to God in his dreams to forgive all those that have died for no reason. When Tenorio realized his daughters were sick and dying he blamed this casualty on Ultima. Without any evidence he was set on killing her just to make up for his loss. When Ultima does pass Antonio is greatly angered by this act.
Later in the argument, Ismene comes up to them to try to take responsibility in the act with Antigone. Then, Antigone interjects saying, “No, you may not die along with me. Don’t say you did it! You wouldn’t even touch it [The plan to bury their brother]. Now leave MY death alone.” (Line 546-547).” Antigone does not want her sister to experience the same glory she has worked for.
In the play, Antigone, Creon and Antigone cannot give in to each other and if Creon gave in to Antigone’s wishes and spared her brother, he would have felt that he weakened himself as a ruler in the eyes of the people he ruled over while Antigone felt that he had to break Creon’s law for the honor that her already dishonored family had for being incestuous. All Antigone wanted was for her family to have an honorable death. Even with Creon’s wants, he eventually gave into Antigone’s desires and gave her brother a
