The argument that Antigone is the hero is deffinatly a strong one. As I said before I am here to argue the title of tragic hero in the play Antigone The individual who makes the descent is known as the tragic hero.
He believes he is in a position to know what They want and know what They feel is best.
This is, of course, a very logical assumption. He is an essentially good man of high position who takes pride in his role as king.
The audience can relate to this and they admire his qualities of intelligence in political affairs.
It is hard to discount Antigone as a tragic hero, because in fact, the play bears her name, but from careful reading, Creon meets Aristotle's criteria exactly and fits.
