Song Representation of Antigone
The song I chose to represent Creon is Pray by Sunny Hill. The song pray fits Creon because in several lines of lyrics fit regret and guilt of what Creon had done. A couple of the lines from the song related to Creon asking for Tiresias help but then not liking the answer, for example "Someone told me to pray to dream, that it will come true no matter what it is.

A lyric that represents how Haemon is quick to kill himself instead of listening to his father is, "lies, all lies- I don't hear anything." In the song there are lyrics that express how Haemon killed himself because Antigone died, " Just end it, end me, If you're not going to be next to me. I'm sorry, but I'll leave now following your footsteps. Following the road with no end, as I wander to find you." These lyrics relate to Haemon because he did end his life because he...
