The Antigone Play

The Antigone play start by establishing a cause of conflict which comes from disobedience.
Antigone fails to go by the rules of Creon who directs that Polynices body should be left in the
battlefield unburied but instead Antigone’s goes ahead and buries her brother (Honig,2013). Creon
questions her morality, but Antigone defends her action by challenging the moral stand of Creon
laws. The play also clearly describes the role of male and females where the man comes out as a
dominating species while the woman should submit to such an authority. Creon felt angry and
undermined when he learns that Antigone had defiled his orders. He subjects her to a harsh
punishment as a way of reminding her of his position and her position.
