Breaking his law and bragging about it are two things that Creon says anger him about Antigone in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).

Specifically, Theban King Creon finds it offensive that Princess Antigone breaks his law of non-burial of the disloyal Theban. He finds it even more offensive that she has no shame about her civil disobedience. It is a wonder that he does not add the third strike of how offensive she is in her attitude, tone and word choice.

What does Creon have to say about Antigone in 'Antigone'?

That she is foolish, replaceable and worthy of her punishment is what Creon has to say about Antigone in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).Specifically, Theban King Creon finds a lot to dislike in his niece, Princess Antigone. He sees her as having a lifelong track record for foolishness and uncontrolled emotional outbursts.

When does Antigone say that she will obey Creon in 'Antigone'?

Antigone never says that she will obey Creon in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).Specifically, Theban Princess Antigone considers divine will and Theban traditions as the sources for how to behave and not to behave. She does not believe that there is a need for her uncle King Creon to be issuing and enforcing his own set of laws. She says that the events of life all are anticipated by the gods and their unchanging codes of conduct for mortals.

That she is wise but uncharacteristically distraught onceis what Creon says about Ismene in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).Specifically, Theban King Creon ascribes lifelong wisdom to his niece, Princess Ismene.

What does Antigone say is the power of kings in 'Antigone'?

To do and say as they will is what Antigone says is the power of kings in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).Specifically, Theban Princess Antigone finds her uncle King Creon delusional. Creon gives her the death sentence for breaking his edict of non-burial of the disloyal Theban dead. He insists that all Thebes is on his side in terms of issuing and enforcing his edict. Antigone knows that Thebans believe as she does and that fear keeps them from following her defiant lead.

When does Antigone say that moralizing repels her in 'Antigone'?

It is during her trial that Antigone says that Creon's moralizing repels her in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).Specifically, Theban Princess Antigone is captured while burying and anointing her brother Polyneices' dead body for the second time. She is escorted under armed guard into her trial by her uncle King Creon. She shows no respect for Creon as her guardian, relative and sovereign and makes the comment just before being sentenced to death.

What is Creon's motive on Antigone's death?

You can say 2 things 1= selfishness. Creon wanted to seem like a strong king who wasn't to be messed with. He wouldn't let Antigone live as he wasn't going to be beaten by a girl. So you could say he was sexist and that his selfishness motivated him to kill Antigone. 2= He thought he was doing the right thing as he believed Polynices was a disloyal person to the dead king, so he thought that Antigone was being disloyal as well. Both answers can be justified with text from the story. hope this helps:)
