The doom reserved for enemies marches on the ones we love the most.

What does Antigone mean?

A

Her brothers, captured by the invading Argive army, are to be burned alive at sunrise in front of the walls of the city.

B

Her brother, Polynices, is to remain unburied on the former field of battle, rotting in front of the walls of the city.

C

Like the widows of the Argive soldiers, Haemon is doomed to loneliness upon Antigone's death.

D

Now that both her brothers, her father, and her mother are dead, Antigone laments the lonesomeness and isolation her sister, Ismene, will be doomed to endure once Antigone is dead.

E

Because of Zeus' curse on her family line, Haemon and Ismene are doomed.
