Antigone wants her brother Polynices be buried. She insists that Creon do this. Creon refuses maintaining that his edict be followed. Both are stubborn characters but Creon is blind to justice. We can hence see Antigone's stubbornness as heroic for she has the most to lose in this confrontation. Creon is stubborn in his pride and bias.
