English 102 TR 1:30 Kreitzer 4/22/08 Antigone Scene 3 of Sophocles’ Antigone , a Greek tragedy written circa 442 BC, portrays one of the tragedy’s main themes and includes events that become extremely significant in relation to the conclusion of the story. The relationship between Haimon and his father, Creon, and how it molds the dialogue between the two shapes the actions and inevitable result of the play. In addition, one theme in the play, laws of nature vs. laws of man, foretells the major events that bring the story to a close. In the open of Scene 3, Haimon begins speaking to Creon in compliments, as a dutiful son would, saying phrases like, “the gods endow men with good sense… and I could not say in what way your words are wrong – and may never be capable of knowing how to say that.” (Lines 737-741) In essence, he is appealing to Creon’s beliefs about absolute state rule, as well as admitting that there’s no way that he could tell his father that he was wrong in his actions to against Antigone for defying him.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
