Homework Help: Antigone

Posted by y912f on Thursday, July 2, 2009 at 5:12pm.

Write a paragraph or two in which you argue whether Antigone did the right thing . Should she have buried her brother or obeyed the decree by her uncle? Support your answer with at least two specific references to the play.

Ans- Antigone did the right thing by burying her brother. In the second scene she tells the king that she should be praised and honored for what she has done and even though Polyneices was a traitor to Eteocles, they were equal in blood and there are honors due to all dead. Antigone also knows that what she did was right and she tells Creon that the Gods know that too.
