Would you stand up for what you think is right no matter what? In Antigone, a classic tragedy written by Sophocles, Antigone is a young woman that does everything she can to stand up for her brother. I had a hard time understanding this play, but I did enjoy reading it.

Being an orphan, Antigone cared deeply for her siblings. When her brothers were killed, one was honored with a burial, while the other was viewed as dishonorable. She stood up to Creon, showing how strong she really was.

Antigone never backed down from the challenge she took on. In fact, she proved to Creon that what goes around comes around. Fate punished Creon for his actions.
