Creon is forever filled with pain and sorrow.
The moral of the play finally unfolds. Audience's Point-of-View-
Still may be in shock.
Some may be glad with the outcome. Antigone: Setting Independent or Dependent? The narrative of Antigone is setting independent because it can occur in more than one setting, and still work. For example, the Rwandan Genocide. This showed isolation. The Tutsis thought less upon the Hutus. The Tutsis were in belief that they were more powerful and greater than the Hutus. Which resulted in 80,000 to 200,000 Hutus slaughtered by the Tutsis. This relates to Antigone by Creon's greatest fear of being in a lower class than women. Another example of how the play is setting independent, is the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. When Juliet awoken from her "death", she noticed that Romeo was dead. So, she commits suicide and stabs herself with an dagger. This can relate to Antigone by how Eurydice kills herself because of grief and Haemon's death. In conclusion, the tragedy of Antigone is setting independent due to how it can relate to multiple settings and events.
