Kreon thinks that the person who caused all of this is Antigone. He thinks that Antigone caused this because it was her fault that that they had an argument in the first place about burying Polyneices. Kreon might think that of Antigone as his nemesis because she causes problems to his family and his empire. He deals with Antigone by slaving her and putting her into in a cave until she starved to death. “Be happy, You are living; but my soul died long ago, to be useful among the death”(pg.43).this are Antigones words which show she wanted to hang herself to be with her
Appearing to be very angry that a woman dared to defy his wishes, Creon boldly declares that “When I am alive no woman shall rule.” The issue of Antigone being condemned to die becomes more than just a person who disobeys Creon; instead, the punishment is given even more eagerly because it is a woman who disobeys a man. Creon does not respect Antigone because she is a woman. Haimon, Creon’s last son hated his father for killing his future bride. After failing to convince his father to forgive Antigone, Haimon visited the cell where she was poisoned. Since Haimon could not stand dealing with his lover’s death he “drew his sword” and killed himself.

Creon then condemns both Antigone and Ismene to death. He changes his mind about Ismene, but locks Antigone away in a stone vault. Later, after the blind prophet Teiresias predicts doom for the king, Creon decides to free Antigone, only to find that she has committed suicide. Antigone's death leads to the suicide of Creon's son, Haemon, who was going to marry her, and then finally to the suicide of Creon's wife, Eurydice. In the end of this great tragedy, Creon is left in distress and great sorrow.
In his play Antigone, Sophocles tells about the actions of Antigone, a princess, who disobeys the civil law in the city of Thebes in order to provide a proper burial for her deceased brother, Polyneices. For this, she is sentenced to death by Creon, her uncle and king of the land. Creon believes that Polyneices did not deserve a proper burial due to the fact he turned on his city and therefore punishes Antigone for her actions. Creon and Antigone both face severe consequences regarding the law they follow, however Antigone is focused on life after death while Creon focuses only on his needs and wants. The main conflict arises when Antigone decides to go against civil law and bury her deceased brother.

Antigone makes a decision and sacrifices her life by burying Polynices as she feels it’s the right thing to do. King Creon finds this decision of hers silly because he wants her and Haemon, his son, to get married quickly and have children.

Her stubbornness of course, is what forces Antigone to rashly take matters in to her own hands, and take the body of Polyneices.
