Lead me away, I have been rash and foolish, I killed my son and my wife, I look for comfort, my comfort lies here dead whatever my hands touch has come to nothing (pg.789). Creon is a Tragic Hero for many reasons and you will soon figure them out. Creon made many different mistakes during Antigone and there are 3 different characteristics that Creon had done during Antigone. Creon was born into nobility, he was responsible for his own fate, then he realize that he made an irreversible mistake. I found that Creon made many different mistakes during Antigone and he believed that he was better than everybody else even before he was king even when his father Menokikeus was still alive.

Creon knew that something had happened when his wife/mom killed herself when she knew that Creon was her son and she never knew what had happened. Everything that had happened to him isn 't going so well for him. Creon knew that he made a mistake when he said “ Lead me away, I have been rash and foolish. I have killed my son and my wife. I look for comfort, my comfort lies here dead. Whatever my hands have touched has come to nothing.” (pg,789)Creon knew that he had made a mistake doing many things to not only his family but other people. He is looking for comfort but he know longer can have any comfort because all his family is dead his wife and son died because of his actions that he had committed. In the next quote Creon had just noticed what he had did to his family and himself by them killing there self and now he can no longer go back and change things. Oh pity! All true, all true, and more than i can bear! O my wife, my son! . Creon had finally thought about what he had done to himself with his wife and son. He is now realizing what he had done to himself and now he can never change what he had done to himself and the public now the public
