Creon And Antigone

Decent Essays
Both Wilde and Sophocles share similar connections within their plays where the female characters take control away from the men. For example, in both Greek times and the Victorian Era, men are the ones with all the power whereas the women have no freedom at all. In Antigone’s case, she and Ismene have only little freedom due to their royalty but Antigone shows more bravery as she defies Creon’s laws and buries Polyneices. Although her loyalty to her brother causes her own demise, her actions were approved by the people and the gods. The Women in Wilde’s play have similar perspectives of feminism where the women feel in control based on their class and high society.
