Review the fact Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl is a diary Which best explains how this fact can increase your comprehension of the text? A) It helps to show that Anne was impulsive, because she could not prevent others from publishing her diary B) It helps to understand Anne's death was tragic, because she could not prevent others from publishing her diary C) It helps to show that Anne is not as cruel as she seems; she just never expected anyone else to read her thoughts D) It helps to show that Anne was immature, because fully mature adults do not keep diaries.

The correct answer is C.

Some people have classified Anne Frank as "cruel" for the things she wrote about her family and the people living with her during her hiding in War World II.

However, Anne was merely writing down her thoughts and feelings. She did not intend for anyone to read her diary. For her, writing in her diary was a way of venting without creating conflict with her house mates.

Contrast haimons main concerns with creons

Sometimes the people that frustrate us the most actually share the same characteristics. In this lesson, we will analyze the characters Antigone and Creon, focusing on their similarities and how these traits cause conflict in the play.Why Can't We Be Friends?

Have you ever struggled to get along with someone, and you couldn't figure out why? Sometimes people can be so similar that it ends up harming instead of helping their relationship. In the play Antigone by Sophocles, we meet two characters so similar they willingly fight to the death because of their personalities and beliefs. To provide some context for the comparisons in this lesson, let's review the conflicts of the play that the characters Antigone and Creon face.

Character Conflicts

Antigone's father exiled himself from Thebes, leaving her brothers Polyneices and Eteocles to share the throne. When Eteocles refuses to give up his time in power, Polyneices is forced to leave the city. He returns years later with an army, but unfortunately, both brothers die in battle, leaving Antigone and her sister Ismene to fend for themselves.

The next male in line to take the throne is their Uncle Creon. Creon's first order names Polyneices a traitor and prohibits a proper burial. Anyone that buries the body shall be punished by death. The thought of Polyneices' body rotting in a field pushes Antigone over the edge. She goes against Creon's orders and buries her brother, leaving Creon with a difficult choice to make.

Should Creon punish Antigone and make himself look weak in his new role as king? Or should he do right by his family and remove the charge? Not to mention Antigone is engaged to Creon's son Haemon. Let's look at their similarities and differences and determine how their personalities affect the outcome of the play.

Similarities and DifferencesFighting for Justice

Even though Antigone and Creon are fighting for different reasons, they both feel deeply and passionately that their reasons are justified. While this difference in opinion causes conflict and death, it binds them together as two very determined individuals who are confident, maybe too much so, in their own beliefs.


Creon and Antigone are set in their ways, and their pride brings about their downfalls. Antigone refuses to acknowledge that she broke the law and would rather die than apologize or acknowledge her wrongdoing. Creon is the same way. He would rather kill a family member and ruin his son's future to stay true to his word and keep command over the people before he would admit defeat and misjudgment. Their pride manifests in different ways, but this stubbornness plays a negative role in both of their lives.


Antigone is loyal to her brother, promising him a proper burial at all costs. She risks her life to fulfill his wishes, remaining loyal to both her culture and the gods with this act. Creon feels his actions reveal his loyalty to Thebes. Antigone's brother fought against Thebes, which makes Creon feel his punishment is just. Going against one's home is a big no-no in Greek culture, so he also feels his action of denying the burial is honorable. While these two characters are on opposite ends of the spectrum regarding their reasons for being loyal, this trait is the reason for their conflict.

Read the excerpt from “The Scarlet Ibis.” 1 It’s strange that all this is still so clear to me, now that the summer has long since fled and time has had its way. 2 A grindstone stands where the bleeding tree stood, just outside the kitchen door, and now if an oriole sings in the elm, its song seems to die up in the leaves, a silvery dust. 3 The flower garden is prim, the house a gleaming white, and the pale fence across the yard stands straight and spruce. 4 But sometimes (like right now), as I sit in the cool, green-draped parlor, the grindstone begins to turn, and time with all its changes is ground away—and I remember Doodle. Which sentence from the excerpt is foreshadowing and why? Sentence 1 because it foreshadows that something tragic happened to the narrator in the distant past. Sentence 2 because it foreshadows that the story is primarily about some type of bird. Sentence 3 because it foreshadows that something significant happened in either the house or flower garden. Sentence 4 because it foreshadows that Doodle is no longer present in the narrator’s life.


Sentence 4 because it foreshadows that Doodle is no longer present in the narrator’s life.


Foreshadowing is a literary device that gives a hint of what may occur in the future or later in the story. From all choices, sentence 4 is the best that uses foreshadowing. Through the excerpt, the narrator, in a nostalgic manner, recalls an event that happened just where he or she is as she or he describes the current setting. And in sentence 4, she or he mentions "and I remember Doodle", which it is a clear hint that Doodle is no longer with him or her anymore, and therefore Doodle will not appear later in the story like an active character.

The line in this excerpt from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet that foreshadow the tragic fate of Romeo and Juliet is the third one: "Then love-devouring death do what he dare;".

Why does sophocles alert the audience to the romantic relationship between antigone and creons son in scene 1 of the play antigone

It is likely that Sophocles alerted the audience about this romantic relationship in order to highlight the interconnectedness of all the characters, and the unexpected consequences that our actions can have. The fact that Antigone and Creon's son are in a relationship only makes the conflict between Antigone and Creon more difficult. This turns out to be true towards the end, when Antigone's death causes Haemon's sui.cide.
