Family Values: + From the start, Antigone feels the need to bury her brother even when it is against the law and could face a death sentence. Ismene states she will forever love Antigone (quote) Antigone attempts to bury the body, even when the sentries are uncovering it. Both brothers have the right to a proper burial Ismene wants to fall with her sister Haimon wanted to die for Antigone, hence he swords himself - Power hungry Eteocles refused to give up the throne to his brother. Creates war and they kill each other. Kreon will kill his son’s wife, won’t let him marry a trader. Antigone explains to Kreon that if it was her child or husband’s body that was left unburied, she would have left it because she can both marry to another man and reproduce another child (quote near 1090) Haimon attempts to kill his father over the death of his new bride Attitudes: Kreon claims that Thebes has retained it’s original order and safety Pride: Antigone and Kreon, used for power in Kreons case
