The difference in beliefs, moral views, and opinions seen through-out the play were constantly disputed between Creon and Antigone. Antigone felt that Creon ignored the laws of gods through his laws. When she was captured after giving her brother proper rites and brought to Creon, she said, “Your edict, King was strong, but all your strength is weakness itself against the immortal unrecorded laws of God. They are not merely now: they were, and shall be operative forever, beyond man utterly” (Rand, 4). Antigone supports the laws of the God’s in heaven and believes that if someone is not given proper burial rites after death, they will not go to heaven.
Steven Jimenez English Ms. Torres 31, October, 2014 The Scarlett Letter Many people throughout their lives have been in the position of being looked down on by a group of people or society because of something they have done wrong, but overcomes their wrong doings at the end.

People often when being in a conflict with their society, usually back down because it is on person against a large amount of people but sometimes that is not the case.

In The Crucible, a drama by Arthur Miller set in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692, Elizabeth Proctor evolves from a judgmental wife to a woman who recognizes her own imperfections and learns forgiveness. Initially, Elizabeth is an austere wife that remains suspicious and distant from her husband unable to forget the horrors of his last affair with Abigail Williams.
