All I wish if for peace to replace my sorrow and shame
When Antigone tells Ismene that she is going to bury their brother Ismene disapproves. This is when Antigone starts to show her power by telling Ismene that she does not care if Creon punishes her for her actions.
Go ahead with your plan, even if you were to be caught I will keep your actions in the dark.
I will go on with my plan with, or without you. If I were to be caught, at least it will be for something honorable.
When Creon confronts Antigone about her brother's burial, he expects Antigone to ask for forgiveness and deny it. Antigone shows a courageous woman role by admitting to Creon what she did. She tells him that she heard the public order and that she does not regret her actions.
How gutsy of a woman to go against my commands. If I let her get away with treason I will have seem to have been beaten by a woman and I will not stand for it.
Even though I have been caught, at least I will be dying in honor
Once again Antigone shows a strong female role when she commits suicide. By taking away her own life, Antigone takes the power away from Creon and dies in a honorable matter. She shows her strength through taking her life away and by deciding her own fate instead of Creon deciding her fate.
I cannot live in a world without my dear sister. She was the last person from my family that I could have depended on. Now that sorrow has filled my heart once again, there is only one option I have.
