The fact that Creon overruled the burial of Polynices did not stop Antigone in the slightest from pursuing what she believed was moral. Respecting her brother in the said afterlife was her mission and she was determined to follow through. Antigone explains: “ I will bury my brother; and if I die for it, what happiness? Convicted of reverence- I shall be content to lie beside a brother whom I love “ (Lines 60-63). Although her actions would defy the commands of her ruler, she follows through with the rebellion to achieve justice for her brother.

The main argument about parenting in Where Did My Little Girl Go?, is that he as a parent has certain duties over his daughter, and that he is the one responsible for protecting her.

The tension within their family pushes them more toward depression, making Loman uses death as a release, and Ilyich feels even more painful about his illness. However, the caring and support from the Loman family causes the essential difference between he and Ilyich, death for Loman is nothing to afraid of because part of the reasons he committed suicide is that he believes that it can bring freedom to not only him, but also his family.

Lomia says this to her son Cape after he begs her to come back and live with he and his father, following it up with a comment on her nightmares of being a widow.
