The climax of Sophocles’ play Antigone details the father Creon confronting his emotionally distraught son after discovering the dead body of his fiancée Antigone (Sophocles 54-55). Haemon strikes out against his father with his sword, but failing to damage him in anyway turns the blade on himself mortally wounding himself. He then embraces his dead beloved before expiring himself. Taking a very simple view one could objectively observe that this was the suicide of a young, emotional boy who felt betrayed by his father. However, when utilizing the theories of Sigmund Freud this scene is far deeper. Freud asserts in his lectures on psychoanalysis that normal objects have sexual meaning inherently tied to them (Freud 190-192). In addition, Freud created the Oedipal Complex in which a boy experiences a sexual competition against the father for the affection of the mother. Analyzing the scene from Antigone with these Freudian concepts uncovers a consummation between Antigone and Haemon in addition to a sexual rebellion against his father Creon.
