In Greek tragedy, hubris is excessive pride or vanity that causes characters to overstep their boundaries and then fall in vain. In Antigone, Creon displays hubris when he takes matters of life and death into his own hands rather than leave those decisions to the gods. Which of these excerpts from Antigone demonstrates Creon’s hubris?

    A) CREON: Our storm-tossed ship of state, now safe in port. But you by special summons I convened As my most trusted councilors; first, because I knew you loyal to Laius of old; Again, when Oedipus restored our State, Both while he ruled and when his rule was o'er,… . . . B) CREON: If I perceive some mischievous design To sap the State, I will not hold my tongue; Nor would I reckon as my private friend A public foe, well knowing that the State Is the good ship that holds our fortunes all: Farewell to friendship, if she suffers wreck. . . . C) CREON: I have proclaimed an edict as concerns The sons of Oedipus; Eteocles Who in his country's battle fought and fell, The foremost champion—duly bury him With all observances and ceremonies. . . . D) CREON: For Polyneices 'tis ordained that none Shall give him burial or make mourn for him, But leave his corpse unburied, to be meat For dogs and carrion crows, a ghastly sight. So am I purposed; never by my will.
