Antigone vs Creon When you are about to examine the likes and differences between Antigone and Creon you wonder what the really do have in common but in all actuality they are more alike then different First of all these two appear quite different because Creon and Antigone have one of the same characteristics in their personality stubbornness Antigone wants her brother to have a proper burial and she wont stop at anything to see him buried nothing Creon is just as stubborn except in the sense that he wont change the law forbidding anyone to bury Polynieces After many people talked to him about changing the law he just stood still on his ground I think he lost his son because of this Just like all the others Creon wouldnt listen to his own son Haemon partly in the fact that he hated Antigone because he was soon to wed Haemon They are also alike because they try to bring someone else into their problems For instance Antigone is trying her best to drag her sister Ismene into helping her bury their brother She doesnt want to get involved because she knows it is wrong and against the law Creon on the other hand tries his best to drag Haemon his son away from Antigone and their marriage In the end Ismene wont come and Haemon dies so something they are doing is wrong They also look at death in the same way Antigone doesnt care about dying because she would like the afterlife better Creon doesnt care if she dies because she disobeyed him and he doesnt really like her Antigone and Creon are both different in ways also First of all the easy ones Creon is a guy Antigone is a girl Antigone cant take orders from Creon and Creon cant take orders from Antigone Antigone wants to bury her brother even though Creon says it is
