How does Creon feel about becoming king?
It makes him feel high.
That they are his supporters is the way the Creon feels about the elders in Thebes in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.). Specifically, the chorus draws its membership from the most accomplished, respected and senior of Theban citizens. It therefore is there to be supportive to Thebes' ruler, the current king. Theban King Creon notices and appreciates the chorus' support.
Oedipus thinks that Creon is framing him for the murder of the former king of Thebes what neither oedipus or creon knows is that the former king of Thebes was?
No, Creon in 'Medea' wasn't the same as Creon in 'Antigone'. In the first case, Creon was the King of Corinth and the father of Princess Creusa. Both father and daughter were killed by Medea, who didn't want to let go of her husband Jason. In the second case, Creon was the King of Thebes. He also was the father of Megara and thereby father-in-law to Heracles. He was killed by Lycus, who was Nycteus'…
According to the messenger, Theban King Creon has become a walking dead man. The King once had a brilliant military record that brought defeat to the forces from Argos and their Theban collaborators. Creon once had the love and respect of his people, friends and family. But the loss of the respect of his people, and of the love of his family and friends, make King Creon a 'breathing corpse'.
What is the order of occurrence from first to last of the events 'Creon returns from Delphi Oedipus accuses Creon Someone says Oedipus is the murderer'?
Yes, Creon genetically is related to Oedipus in "Oedipus Rex" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.). Specifically, Creon is Theban King Oedipus' uncle. He is the brother of Queen Jocasta, who is Oedipus' mother and wife. Creon and Oedipus share a common paternal ancestor in Thebes' founding King Cadmus.
Theban King Creon is Theban King Oedipus' brother-in-law. Specifically, Creon is the brother of Theban Queen Jocasta, wife and mother to Oedipus. So Creon also is Oedipus' uncle. But not one of the three sovereigns realizes that the three are linked other than by the marriage of Oedipus and Jocasta and the blood relationship between her and Creon.
To support his edict is what Creon commands the chorus leader in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.). Specifically, Theban King Creon announces his edict of non-burial of the disloyal Theban dead. The leader of the chorus of Theban elders comments that Creon may do as he wishes as king of Thebes. Creon then in essence directs the leader to make sure that the edict is defended, protected and supported.
That a king needs to rule alone is what Creon thinks that a king should do in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.). Specifically, Theban King Creon likes having the royal powers all to himself. He does not think that he needs to seek second opinions on anything. In fact, he believes that it is a sign of weakness to look anywhere but to oneself when ruling Thebes.
Yes, Theban King Creon's family and people discover the true character of their monarch. For example, nieces Antigone and Ismene, son Haemon, and wife Theban Queen Eurydice discover that Creon doesn't feel compelled to honor their ties of blood or their privileges as Thebans of noble and royal birth. The gods discover that Creon doesn't feel honor bound to obey their traditions, rites and rituals. The people of Thebes discover that Creon doesn't feel impelled…
Theban King Oedipus accuses Theban King Creon of trying to overthrow him. The reason lies in what Creon and Teiresias the blind prophet previously tell him. Creon says that Thebes is suffering from a pestilence that only go away with the identification and punishment by execution or exile of the killer or killers of Theban King Laius. Then Teiresias identifies Oedipus as the killer. Oedipus doesn't know that Teiresias is correct in his identification. So…
A relative, as brother-in-law and uncle, and a colleague are what Theban King Creon is to Theban King Oedipus. Creon is the brother of Theban Queen Jocasta. Jocasta is both wife and, albeit unknowingly, mother to Oedipus. In addition to the ties of blood and marriage, Creon is co-ruler with the royal couple. The three are the ruling monarchs of Thebes. So they share the same job title, and are in the same line of…
No, Creon is not an honorable king in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.). Specifically, Theban King Creon dishonors divine will and Theban traditions with his maverick edict of non-burial of the disloyal Theban dead. He dishonorably maintains that stance despite the suffering of his people. He dishonorably reverses his stance only when he is warned of the boomeranging effect on his own household.
That he is king is the reason why Creon is at the center of all conflicts in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.). Specifically, Creon is king of Thebes. That makes him the highest of non-divine authorities on earth. He therefore participates in all events, harmonious or conflictual, that affect his city and his people.
Theban King Creon appears to symbolize the unassuming nature of modesty. He actually rules jointly with the married couple that his sister, Theban Queen Jocasta, forms with Theban King Oedipus, who is both her son and her husband. Creon indeed states that he has no interest in ruling alone and that he's content with the power sharing arrangement.
Hostile is the way that Creon feels about Antigone marrying his son in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.). Specifically, it is doubtful that Theban King Creon's feelings are any different from the way they always are in terms of Princess Antigone. Creon makes it clear that he disdains and disparages his niece. He even states that she is too evil to be Prince Haemon's wife and that she is completely replaceable.
The ultimate authority in life is the source of conflict between Antigone and Creon in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.). Specifically, Theban King Creon believes that he can decide what is best for himself, his city and his people. He does not feel influenced or inhibited by what goes before, around or after him. He in fact is in transition from Antigone's old ways of cherished traditions, divine will and family ties.
Yes, Creon still lives at the end of "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.). Specifically, all that the audience knows is that Theban King Creon loses everything that gives meaning to his life: reputation, job, home, and family. He therefore welcomes death, but does not find it during the confines of the play. There are subsequent variant versions such as Creon being murdered, but Sophocles does not include any final information about Creon…
To bring them to him, to function as guardian and to let them accompany him in exile are what Oedipus asks of Creon in "Oedipus Rex" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.). Specifically, disgraced Theban King Oedipus asks his brother-in-law and royal successor King Creon to allow him visit with his young daughters, the sister Princesses Antigone and Ismene. He then asks Creon to function as guardian of the young girls. He finally asks…
Theban King Oedipus insists that his uncle and brother-in-law, Theban King Creon, share in public the news from Apollo the sun god's shrine. He sends Creon to find out what can be done to end the pestilence that affects Thebes' livestock, harvests, and birth rate. Creon prefers to share the news first and in private with Oedipus. But Oedipus wants his people to hear the breaking news.
He begins to deny everything, and starts arguing with Teiresias. After that, he blames Creon, claiming that Creon was jealous of Oedipus' power and wants the throne, so he murdered King Laius. When Creon enters, he says that he is already treated like a king and that he doesn't need the name of king to be treated like one. Later on in the tragedy, Oedipus begins to question himself.
in my home examination there was a question like, who is the protagonist of the play, antigone or creon? i thought it ws open ended and we can choose anyone.therefore i chose antigone. but out of 10 marks i scored only 2 because the right answer was creon. creon realised his mistakes at the end and felt guilty for his action, where as antigone didn't feel any guilt. so creon is the protagonist.
Teiresias the blind prophet warns Theban King Creon about the precariousness of his own happiness and security. He indicates that just as Thebans suffer great sorrow, so too will Teiresias. Specifically, he cautions the King to beware of the rounds that Death and Misfortune are making in the city of Thebes. Tesiresas essentially asks why Creon should think that his household and his position will be spared when atraditional laws defy the gods and the…
