Creon and Brady

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Brady is a Christian prosecutor in Hillsboro. Creon is a tyrannical King in. They will not stand anyone breaking their law. It might not be so obvious to see that both would share a comparison at first sight, but they do. The one word that describes their similarities is, strict. They will try their best and will do anything to enforce the laws. There are also some things that set them apart as well. Brady for example didn't make the law that made teaching evolution illegal. Creon did in fact; create the law that made it illegal to bury Polyneices. These differences are very nominal. Their similarities are on the other hand titanic yet camouflaged at first site. They both stand their ground and fight for many reasons. Creon doesn't want people to think he's a joke and Brady feels he has fight this man who broke not only the law, but went against the bible because Brady has religious responsibilities. ...read more.

Middle

His goal in life is obviously to serve god and make sure he has done all he could for him. Of course his thinking of going to heaven is far more important than looking bad in front of your citizens like what Creon is afraid of. Brady is a Christian Priest. Creon is a king. It is not very obvious to see the differences between these characters at first. I mean, you could barely see that they fight for what they believe in. But there is more to that then meets the eye. They both seem to look different, but with much analysis and pondering, I uncovered their similarities that will leave you dumbfounded. He sees someone breaking a law that also goes against the bible. He is a very religious man and will do anything to make sure he has served god in the life. Creon is just concerned about having a high approval rating. He thinks that being a strict and good king is the most important thing in the world. ...read more.

Conclusion

Brady would, alternatively, give you a fine or a short jail sentence. You choose who you would want to appose you. Just because one is stricter than the other doesn't mean that they are different. They are still similar and they are still people who would appose anyone, even their family. These people are just "by the book." "I am here to defend that which is most precious in the hearts of all of us: the Living Truth of the Scriptures!" says Brady. His aspiration to make sure that no one else breaks the law by making an example out of Cates is similar to Creons principles. Making sure that if you do break the law, these people will do anything to punish you. Brady is defending the bible with his life. His duty to enforce law is priority over anything. Just as it is a priority for Brady to enforce the law, Creon shares the same responsibility in his own city. It becomes apparent that Creon is merciless and would punish anyone. His niece had broken the law and he wasn't concerned about her. He was just concerned about his own ...read more.
