Antigone Creon destroyed order and disrupted nature. Tiresias advises Creon to undo the mess, else the gods will be upset and his son Haemon will die. However, Creon ignores the cultural moral to accepts the prophets advice. Creon states Tiresias is corrupt and dismisses him. Oedipus also ignores the advice of Tiresias. At the time of Oedipus’ rule there was a plague, capable of being ended only with the exiling of Laius’ killer. Although, unknown by Oedipus, he is the killer of Laius. In attempts to stop the plague, Oedipus asks Tiresias who the killer is. Tiresias grudgingly reveals Oedipus is Laius’ killer. Similar to Creon, Oedipus completely disregards Tiresias’ news. Oedipus then tells Tiresias that he thinks that Tiresias played part in the murder. Oedipus also blames Creon for the murder. Since Oedipus lacks trust Tiresias word, the plague remains burdensome in Thebes. Oedipus ignores prophetic word in an earlier experience with a prophet. The prophet told Oedipus that he would marry his mother and kill his father. Oedipus again ignored the prophets word. Due to the two tragic heros’ hamartia and peripeteia is later present. Sophocles is teaching the potential harm of the ignorance of cultural morals, through both tragic heros’ Peripeteia. Peripeteia is the tragic hero’s reversal of fortune, their downfall. Both Creon and Oedipus come to a life of adversity, subsequent to their actions of arrogance. After Creon ignores the prophet, his life rapidly fell downhill.

If Creon had followed the cultural moral to listen to the prophet, he would have been able to save Antigone. As the prophet said misfortune will come if Creon’s actions aren’t undone. Immediately after the discovery of Antigone’s death, Haemon attempts to kill Creon. Although, Haemon fails, and then stabs himself. Eurydice listens to the news from the messenger, and oddly walks back to the palace expressing no emotion. The messenger follows her to find out that she also commit suicide. All of Creon’s hardships come as a result of ignoring cultural morals Creon started Antigone living lavishly with his family. In the end of Antigone, Creon a man hated by gods, and lacking in a family. OedIpus also experiences Peripeteia because of his ignorance of a prophet. Oedipus’ prophecy was that he will be the killer of his father and the husband of his wife. Oedipus completely ignores his prophecy and proceeds to kill a man, later to find out that it was his father. Oedipus also marries the Queen of Thebes, Jocasta, with no hesitation, or thought of the possibility of marrying his mother. Oedipus then has children with Jocasta, with no regard to his Prophecy.
