Creon cares about his son so much he doesn’t want Haemon to marry Antigone just because she broke the law. Creon says, “You will never marry this side of death.”(646) Creon cares mostly about his family and don’t Haemon to marry a women that did something bad. Creon is doing the right thing for his son so he can live a better life than marrying a woman that broke the law. Creon also says, “No son of mine shall web so vile a creature.”(486) Haemon tries so hard to convince her father to let him marry her but Creon is stopping him. He cares about her wife, Eurydice, as well because Creon wanted to suicide when he saw his son and wife died in scene 8.
"He ashamed, and wants to tell her so, but it's not for him to apologize. He hasn't earned the right" (Page 176) - I found this quote to be significant because I felt that it showed Dragan's character and how the guilt had built up within him. It showed us how Dragan felt remorse for what happened to Emina but he also felt that he wasn't worthy enough to own up to it. He felt that since he never helped her, well she was shot. So he feels he's unworthy of showing her, his remorse because he never tried to help her in the first place.
Antigone believes that without burying her brother he will not have a good after-life. Antigone even goes as far as burying him twice. Antigone is more admirable in that she is not selﬁsh. She cared for her brother so much that she would go through all this trouble to give him a good after-life. She wanted to marry Haimon but sacriﬁced this to bury her brother.
* J.B Priestley’s play, An Inspector Calls (19 47) uses dramatic techniques – develop worthwhile ideas with enduring significance to capture the audience. * The disparity between youth and age by demonstrating how the older characters are stuck in their ways and cannot see how they played the part in someone else’s life. * Shared nature of human responsibilities for others/ notion of ignorance and blindness. Paragraph 1 – youth and age * Juxtaposed young and old characters – Act 1 Mr. Birling and his daughter Sheila are questioned, while in - Act 2 Mrs.
The readers are saddened because Antigone should not have died and she should be the queen of the kingdom instead of Creon. Even though Antigone dies in the end of the play, she does something important and meaningful before she dies. Her death is not a complete loss because she buried her brother and cleaned her conscience before she went to the underworld. "I should have praise and honor for what I have done." Creon tries to make things right in the end because the oracle tells him what he had done and the gods would be mad at him but is too
She is confronted by Ismene, townspeople, the guard, and Creon but she stays true to her religious beliefs. Creon tried to make her see the burial rites issue from his point of view by saying that one brother died defending the country but the other died destroying the country. In response Antigone states, “That may be, but Hades still desires equal rites for both” (592-593). Without wavering, Antigone keeps to her original Greek Gods argument, thus still a religious figure. Even when Ismene tries to share the punishment in burying their brother, Antigone sticks to honesty and doesn't want to please someone who didn't believe in what she believed was right.
This even caused a chain reaction and made her friends taunt her, attack her heritage, and make her ashamed of her own culture. She began to shut out her Arabic side. 2. Education is the most important subject in Asfahani’s essay because she concludes by saying, “Education is the key to understanding”. When her brother told his mother of the discrimination in his life, she went to his school and educated his peers.
One way was by leaving her home to be with her husband. As she was not of high birth she had no guarantee of being able to provide food, clothing, or shelter to her children should a situation arise and she was left alone. She then found out that her husband had engaged in a relationship with the King’s daughter and intended to marry her. The King planned to exile her because of the way she behaved concerning the situation. She was expected to just step aside and watch her husband and children be taken away from her after she sacrificed everything to have a life with him.
By the end of this play, we see how Nora’s secret changes the relationship between the couple, as she violates the stereotypical role-play as a wife and mother in her era, which generates her inspirational growth. Nora, the main character, was first introduced as a very sheltered, immature, and optimistic woman. Helmer we see as proud of his male role in society and in the household, father-like towards his wife, and greatly cares for his appearance in others eyes. When speaking to each other, Helmer communicates to Nora as if she was his child instead of his wife. He does this by things such as calling her nicknames with negative characteristics, such as his little lark, spendthrift and featherhead.
The first thing we experience as an audience is the burial controversy. Although the proper burial of her brothers body was forbidden, Antigone’s moral standards would not allow or such a thing. Her sister, Ismene warned her it is not her responsibility as a woman to “aim too high, too far.” Antigone admitted to her guilt with honesty which might just have been her tragic flaw. And she did not allow her sister to take blame neither, sparing one life. Perhaps, because she saved one life, the rest would have to fall.
