Antigone’s Purpose

Brooks Fridey Antigones intend In the story of Antigone, originally written by Sophocles, explains the story, of a cleaning woman who stands up for her own beliefs against the king. At the time of Sophocles, women had little power and authority. They were judge to listen to their husband, king, or any man that speaks to or asks a woman of something. The story starts up where the story of Oedipus ends, in his death. Trouble and war atomic number 18 about to begin in Thebes, so Antigone travels there to try and delay what may become of her family and country.From my observations, this story substructure be analyzed in multiple ways, whether it is about the struggles of women, defying the higher power, or responding to the go out of the gods. It is said that the magnificent family of Thebes is cursed to endure suffering, pain, death and loss. Antigone is aware of her familys fate, but is lively to permute her possible destiny for herself and her family. In Thebes, the member s of the royal family are all cleansing themselves or are being murdered. Antigone is torn by this and decides she mustinessiness go to Thebes to fix this.She got word that her br otherwises, Polyneices and Eteocles, were waiver to engagement each other until one was dead. She tried to be there before any fight happened, but was too late, and found out from her sister, that bother buddys were killed during the fight. The king order that Eteocles deserved a proper burial, but Polyneices was to non be affected and would not get a burial underground. Antigone asked her sister, Ismene, to help her drop their brother properly, but she refused. It was ordered that anyone who touches the body bequeath be arrested and shall be punish by death.Ismene told Antigone that she cannot bring herself to do it. She feels that her familys consistently terrible percentage and the fact that shes a woman are quite inhibiting. Antigone was pretend to stand up for the women who would not defy mens authority. She was fine with doing what she needed to herself. Ismene, who is trapped under the influence and power of man, tries to beg Antigone she will be making a mistake and will suffer smashing consequences. Stating, It is a losing battle, fighting Man (Sophocles). It is obvious throughout the story, that nothing will prevent or slow Antigone from what she is going to do.Not man, nor power, or laws is enough to change her mind. Creons reasoning as to why Eteocles gets a burial dish and Polyneices is to be leftfield out for the birds, is to him, justified that Eteocles died honorably defending the city, date Polyneices was just a dishonorable exile. This was no real justification to Antigone, and she was going to take matters into her own hands, defying the king. It was soon discovered that Polyneices body had been ritually vigilant for a burial, so the courier relayed the news to the king. He ordered that the messenger find who is responsible for this or he will di e if he fails.As what seemed, intended the sentry soon found Antigone trying to bury her brother. She was arrested, and taken to Creon. Antigone does not deny her crime, she tells Creon her actions were for justice and obedience to the gods. With all of Antigones stubbornness, she continues to inactive disrespect the king even after she has been caught. She will not entertain in to the king, disagreeing with any justification he promotes. Creon attempts to shame her for her actions, but this has no real effect on her due to a large quantity of pride dignity she has left for herself.Creon feels it is particularly important not to be beaten by a person of the female persuasion. The battle of icy effect continues with Antigone and Ismene, as she is brought into question as well from a screw the king has that Ismene is also involved in this crime. She immediately pleads guilty to the accusations, truism she aided in the burial of Polyneices. Antigone is enraged that she would ple ad guilty to something she had not done, but Ismene confronts the fact she will not be able to go on without Antigone alive.It is expressed throughout the story, the importance of obeying the gods. To Antigone, it is not necessary that soul should obey their leader at all times. She believes what Creon declared to happen to her brothers was unfair and that the gods were telling her she needed to bury her brother. Antigone was unapproved to the treatment of women in these times, and that the king must be obeyed in all causes. She believed the gods were the true powers, and bad things would come upon you if you did not cooperate with their requests.When Haemon comes into the story, acknowledged as Antigones fiancee, who is the son of Creon, makes it clear why Antigone was even still alive. Although Creon was cruel and often harsh, there was still something or someone holding him back from simply killing her. Haemon told his father it would be wrong to kill Antigone and would bring g reat mourning to the people of Thebes quest her death. He complimentss Creon to be open to others views, but Creon responds by calling Haemon a womans slave for backing up a woman and not his own father.A blind prophet advises Creon that he should properly bury Polyneices and release Antigone. He says if he does not he will greatly resentment the gods, and might create his own misfortune for his disobedience. Possibly leading(p) to his own death. As Creon ponders his possibilities and future, he finally decides to release Antigone and bury Polyneices. As he thought he was then making the right decision, he would soon find out what his choice will cause. Antigone knew she didnt want to keep living in this world of mistreatment and cruelty, and was willing to end her life.Creon did not think she would actually go through anything like suicide, but upon her release, she pronto hung herself and gave herself to the gods. Haemon found out what happened, and enraged, attacked his fath er, and missed leading to Haemon striking himself with the sword and killing himself. As if the story for Creon could be any more devastating, instantly regretting his choice, is told by a messenger that his wife enrages by Creons actions, as well, and killed herself. Creon is left with nothing and no one close to him in his life, and wonders what to do now.This is a story that depicts the power of anyone, especially women. With enough determination and manipulation, anything is possible. Antigone was dealt with an accumulation of anger towards her genders rights, the abuse of power, and being righteous enough to still follow her gods. She is seen as one of the first feminists in this time, and although may have gone to an innate to defend her honor, clearly made a point to Creon, leaving him with nothing, what dribble of someones abilities are and abusing ones power can do.
