A standout among the other characters is Antigone, she infringed upon the law of Creon for the burial of Polyneices and this is a major circumstance in the play. She knows her points of confinement with Creon, but she loves her brother sincerely and is willing to accept to the consequences. Antigone is a wise, sagacious woman who doesn't let anything or anyone get in the way of her Religion she stated "I have not sinned before God. Or if I have, I shall know the truth in death." (Scene IV Line 67-68) Creon laid his grounds about his decision, but Antigone is staying strong with what she believes is right stating "But if the guilt lies upon Creon who judges me, then, I pray, may his punishment equal my own.'
Understanding the confusion about these things and knowing that there is more than one way to get to the goal, loving and understanding literature, is the true reason that Graff has an advantage as a literature teacher. In his youth the fear that Graff felt towards books was based on the predicate that, if you liked books you were “a sissy”
She just believes that the country needs good politicians and she knows when somebody is good and when somebody is not. Her own way into politics happens rather by accident. For example is when she was boldly giving out her opinion and overrules a reporter who refers to Mr Schmidlapp as second-rate. In addition to that, she is dependable, intelligent, good-hearted, loyal and funny woman. She brightens up the screen with a lovely smile and creates a sometimes amusing, but always likeable character.
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.

Nora is not concern about keeping her honor but selflessly more concerned with her husband’s honor. While taking into consideration Torvald’s reputation, Nora informs Kristine the negative effect sharing her secret would have on Torvald when she remarks, “besides Torvald, with all his masculine pride-how painfully humiliating for him if he ever found out he was in debt to me” (Ibsen 1030). Nora’s genuine care and prior knowledge to how important reputation is to her husband displays how important protecting honor is. Nora is not the only one concerned with protecting her husband’s honor so is Torvald himself. Torvald answer contradicts what Nora believes to be important in maintaining honor in their relationship: “I’d gladly work for you day and night - and take on pain and deprivation.
Because of her exceptional powers of observation, Elizabeth 's sense of the difference between the wise and foolish, for the most part, is very good. (Josephine, 2003) In spite of her mistake in misjudging Wickham and Darcy, and her more blamable fault of sticking stubbornly to that judgment until forced to see her error, Elizabeth is usually right about people. For example, she painfully recognizes the inappropriate behavior of most of her family, and she quickly identifies Mr. Collins as a fool and Lady Catherine as a tyrant. However, this ability to size people up leads her too far at times. She proceeds from reasonable first impressions of
Then comes Antigone, the girl who thinks she has the right to act against the law. This poses a moral dilemma for Creon, as Antigone is his niece, the last of the descendants of Oedipus.

Her justification is merely that Creon’s law is not the mandate of her God, and that the burial of a family is more imperative than all else (500-523). When confronted by Creon with Polynices’ treacherous crime, she cannot put up any defense.
Rowlandson’s lack of criticism or ability to see any wrong in Puritan society and truthfully portray her experience due to fear of persecution is a vivid demonstration of the danger of cultivating societies that promote the devout following of harmful, narrow-minded ideologies. As evident in the case of Rowlandson’s memoir, confinement to a set body of beliefs prevents any flexibility in knowledge, perspective, or beliefs, which leads to lack of respect and willingness to relate or understand those with differences. Rowlandson’s inability to understand the Indians allowed her to maintain her prejudice and continue to submit to Puritan society’s expectations. Rowlandson’s experiences with the food, people, and overall culture of the Native Americans should have demonstrated that the distance between she and the Indians is actually not so great. Rather, she only takes away an affirmation of what Puritan society wants her to
