Haemon, Creon’s son, endlessly asks for the release of his betrothed wife, Antigone. Contradictory of his beginning behavior toward his father, Haemon becomes more aggressive and bold in his desperation. It seems as though Haemon was trying to please his father before asking him the favor, because he praises his father by saying that “no marriage can mean more than his continuing wisdom,” depicting that he is trying to soften the man’s heart with a complimentary act that proceeds his true wish. Creon warns his son that he should not get so emotionally attached with Antigone because of the previous situation he was muddled with of Polyneices. Arguing over the life of this woman, Haemon firmly defends Antigonein the act of justice as Creon debates that she must die. Haemon finally comes to a conclusion that if she dies, “her death will cause another.” Creon, not understanding (yet, again, the king is very stubborn and does not listen to anyone else but himself) thinks of his son gone crazy and rebukes his son of his naive, but mature tone against him.
