did such not deserve one. However, I believe that regardless of a person’s actions, they are deserving of the right to be treated as a human being and in the time and place Antigone is set, the lack of any type of burial is the lowest form of disgrace. Proof/Point 1 (Evidence in text to support claim . Cite specific sections) “CREON Before my presence here the very man Who carried out this lawless burial, Death for your punishment shall not suffice. Hanged on a cross, alive ye first shall make Confession of this outrage. This will teach you What practices are like to serve your turn. There are some villainies that bring no gain. For by dishonesty the few may thrive, The many come to ruin and disgrace.” (280-314) Proof/Point 2 (Evidence in text to support claim .

CREON Die then, and love the dead if thou must; No woman shall be the master while I live.” (522-524) Proof/Point 3 (if necessary) D.

Overall, I believe that Antigone was more just in her actions than Kreon over the conflict of her brother’s burial. Antigone was guided by an altruistic moral compass whereas Kreon was guided by self-serving and egotistical intentions.

    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.
