When we looked at Antigone it initially felt like a story build and bent on revenge. The anger Antigone must have felt for Kreon after the incident with her mother and father, and now her brothers, the pain must have been near unbearable. It later reveals to be a story of ignorance and the bliss that comes with it, Kreon sons Haimon even says “But it’s no shame even for a wise man to learn and to relent.” This is Haimon’s plea with his father to see the ignorance in his ways before it is too late. Although, even after the wise man told him to be cautious and to see the error in his ways. And the main thing to consider within any story is, tragedy finds a home in ignorance. This is most clear relating to Antigone and Oedipus because in both stories their ignorance allowed them to miss information that could have potentially spared them. There is symbolism present within the story as well that shows some of the more inner meanings of the story, particularly, when Haimon grips Antigone and spits up blood onto her white linens, showing the destruction of purity within their society. Kreon blinded by his own ignorance suffers dearly from it, he loses his whole family and is not even granted the pleasure of death.
