Creon made a law that stated no one was allowed to bury Polynices, and if they did, it was punishable by death. Antigone told her sister, Ismene, that she was going to bury him anyway because it was her right.
"I will bury him myself. And even if I die in the act, the death will be a glory"( Antigone 85-86).
Creon was telling the sentry how he would never forgive the act of an enemy and that is why he made his law regarding Polynices.
"I could never stand by silent, watching destruction march against our city, putting safety to rout, nor could I ever make that man a friend of mine" (Antigone 207-209).
"I did it. I don't deny a thing"(Antigone 492).

Haemon confronts his did and tries to persuade him and change his mind about killing Antione. He politely tries to ask Creon to change his mind, but it only errupts in a big arguement. Creon then is only further determined to put Antigone to death.
"So, men our age, we're to be lectured, are we? Schooled by a boy his age?"(Antigone 812-4).
"O tomb, my bridal-bed--my house, my prison cut in the hollow rock, my everlasting watch! I'll soon be there, soon embrace my own, the great growing family of our dead" (Antigone 978-81).
On her way to death, Antigone realizes that she does not want to die. She is now scared and is regretting her actions.
"Ohhh, my crimes, so senseless, so insane. My stubborn, deadly-Look at us, the killer, the killed" (Antigone 1392-5).
Creon changes his mind about killing Antigone, but when he goes to save her, he finds many others dead because of him. Including ANtigone, his wife, Eurydice, and Haemon.
