Ok I’m glad I knew about Antigone before watching it in class or else I would have no clue what was going on. Especially how it was in Greek. I would have not understood a thing or caught anything out of it if I hadn’t seen it before that. I actually think I saw it on T.V. or something before. I bet my grandparents were watching it and that’s how I saw it. Or we watched it in class like freshman or sophomore year. I don’t know but I know I’ve seen it before.
Antigone is crazy! To defy an order of the king like that is insane! I mean with today how we have laws and rules and everything and I mean I don’t even disobey my parents as much as I can. Breaking rules scares me. Not gonna lie about that. But to actually completely disobey a direct order from the King is intense. I think she deserves major props too. She sticks up for what she believes is right and does it. Now her sister on the other hand needs to get a reality check. I don’t like how Antigone’s sister is like oh I should have helped you and I knew this was going on and I deserve the same punishment as Antigone. No. She did nothing and she deserves nothing for doing nothing. I think that’s pretty messed up for her to be like sorry I won’t help. I’m just a woman I can’t do anything. And yeah that’s how things were back in those days but I mean come on! It’s your brother and you aren’t going to do anything about it? I mean sure me and my sister aren’t best friends or anything but if something happened to her that I needed to take care of and be there for her in some way or other I would be there. She’s family and family is the most important thing.
I think King Creon is on a power kick too. Like he knows that whatever he says goes so he puts out this order for knowing how Antigone feels about her brother even though he went to war against their city. It’s like he’s asking for her to die because he knows she will want to burry him. That’s how I see it anyways.
Like I said earlier, Antigone’s sister is a panzy. I side with Antigone on the whole don’t punish her kick because yeah Anitgone was the only one who did anything in the first place and she is making a statement. If you were rebelling like that wouldn’t you want all the glory of it to be yours? Your plan, your actions, and no one elses. Why would someone else have to suffer or want to suffer for that? Stupid.
