Once she realizes that her two brothers are also gone she wants to give them both the proper burial that they deserve because they to experienced the same amount of pain that Anitgone faced in the course of her life. Antigone probably wanted to give both her brothers a proper burial because she never got to give her mother or her father one. Her dad went into exile after finding out that he killed his own father and interacted in sexual intercourse with his own mother.
Antigone Antigone and Ismene are sisters. They have two brothers who just killed each other and both died. Creon, whos very powerful, honored one and dishonored the other.

His ideas about her being a good pure Queen are proved false as she turns her back on her husband and marries his brother. This bothers Hamlet before he discovers his father was murdered. “Thou turn’st mine eyes into my very soul, And there I see such black and grained spots, As will not leave their tinct” (79-81) Gertrude admits that incest with her husband’s brother has blackened her soul and will forever haunt her existence. Her son’s words have struck her and she realizes what a horrible sin she has committed. However, it seems she says this to appease Hamlet as though her future actions do not show that she is remorseful.
He kept wondering how his mother can do this to him and Hamlet plots revenge against the King; the king is also plotting revenge against Hamlet. Hamlet is saddened by his father’s death, but what saddened him even more was that his mother would do such thing like betray his father. However, the death of her father was the primary reason why she went mad. She didn’t go mad because of anything else. She was deeply saddened by her father’s death because he was the only one she looked up to and whom she say as her shining light, so to speak, but now that light has gone away and she saw no point in continuing on with life.
Haimon warned his father, "[t]hen she'll die, and her death will destroy others" (908). His admonition, which foreshadowed the tragedy, was disregarded by his arrogant father. Even Teieresias warned Kreon against his planned course of action. Kreon initially rejecting the prophet's advice to yield, subsequently conceded to the wise prophet's advise, but it was too late. Antigone had hung herself, Haimon had died of his own sword, and Eurydice, his wife, had killed herself out of grief.
Having already been through public disgrace, when her own father, Oedipus found out that he was to fulfill a prophecy; he would kill his father and marry his mother, and this caused Antigone to be full of resentment toward her city. Both of her brothers die in a battle and, Creon, the king of Thebes forbids the burial of one of her brothers, Polynices. This must have driven Antigone to follow her moral law. Considering the love she had for her family as well as her God, she felt that you react upon morals not upon the laws of man. That morale law was to honor her brother and give him the respectful and proper burial that he deserved just as her other brother was given.
A law was made against her brother Polynice who had died battling against his very own brother and country. Antigone knew the consequences of disregarding the law, but since she was his sister she did not want to obey the law. She then proceeded to bury her brother anyways to show her loyalty and how much she loved him.

Tessie had forgotten about the town lottery so she ended up being late.

To assure himself that no one would find out about his secret he told Celie "you better not never tell nobody but God it'd kill your mammy"(1) and told Mr._____ "she tell lies"(9).

Firstly to hurt Jason, and secondly so they would not be killed by the followers of Creon when they find out he is dead. ... ... middle of paper ... ...fferent kind: dangerous to my enemies, Loyal to my friends."

Haimon killed himself. Eurydice, Creon’s wife, heard how it was Creon’s fault that their son is dead, so she killed herself. Now Creon is all alone.
