Will you come?”(Sophocles 752). In this quote, Antigone is informing her sister that she is going to go against Creon’s proclamation and bury her brother. Antigone feels that her decision is valid because, in her religion, if someone has not received the appropriate burial ceremony, they will not go to heaven. By burying her brother, Antigone is breaking Creon’s regulation, because the law goes against her personal religion. However, Antigone is doing it because she believes it is the right thing to do, regarding her religion.

Hermia neglects the notion that women should obey the men in their lives because she refuses to follow the wishes of her father, Egeus. As mentioned previously Egeus wishes for Hermia to marry Demetrius, but seeing as Hermia does not love him, she refuses to marry him. Ironically, Shakespeare also uses Hermia’s character to display the ways in
In this case, Antigone calls out Ismene for choosing to obey the rule of Creon rather than the rule of the gods. “I shall be hating you soon,” (193). Antigone then transitions into a more emotional form of persuasion, by threatening the relationship between them if she is to not join in on her plan. This targets the guilty conscience of Ismene which is normally what tends to push people to agree with the arguer, although it can be seen as a slightly manipulative tactic. Despite Antigone’s passive aggressive argument with Ismene, she fails to convince her to join the burial and carries out her mission on her own.

After discovering that her husband does not listen to his wishes, Mr. Pontellier furiously questions his wife, questioning her motive. To that, Mrs. Pontellier comments, "Nothing.
Keon’s forbidden this” (749). The intensity of Antigone showed the bravery of her heart and her desire to confront the authority and gain justice; however, Ismene did not gain courage or desire to join in as Antigone had hoped. Conversely, Antigone’s determination truly scared her. Perhaps it’s rooted in the fact that women normally did not express strong emotion, nor did they involve themselves in politics as Antigone did through actively opposing King Kreon’s authority. Or simply, Ismene felt belittled by the oppressive assertiveness of her older sister, and in response wanted to have no part in any of her

2. In this quote, Ismene is telling Antigone that she will not help in the illegal act of burying Polynices. Antigone becomes offended by her unwillingness to help her, because Polynices is Ismene’s brother as well. The reason why Ismene won’t help her, is because Ismene does not want to go against Creon’s law and be killed. However, Antigone does not care if she gets executed, she is willing to bury Polynices no matter life or death.
She seemed like the only person who cared and payed attention to Ender. Peter was a bully to Ender, and his parents resented him because of the past they were trying to evade. Another imperative quote from chapter 3 is in the beginning when the two anonymous voices were talking. “‘He [Ender] won’t want to leave her. [Valentine]’ ‘So, what are you going to do?’ ‘Persuade him that he wants to come with us more than he wants to stay with her.’ ‘How will you do that?’ ‘I’ll lie to him.’ ‘And if that doesn’t work?’ ‘Then I’ll tell the truth.’” (Card, page 16) We can conclude that one of the voices is Colonel Graff because he’s the one who came to try to persuade Ender to go with him.
