Antigone is independent.

"A specious pretext. I will go alone

To lap my dearest brother in the grave."

"No, save thyself; I grudge not thy escape."

Antigone is determined.

"I urge no more; nay, wert thou willing still,

I would not welcome such a fellowship.

Go thine own way; myself will bury him.

How sweet to die in such employ, to rest,--

Sister and brother linked in love's embrace--

A sinless sinner, banned awhile on earth,

But by the dead commended; and with them

I shall abide for ever. As for thee,

Scorn, if thou wilt, the eternal laws of Heaven."
