Civil disobedience is defined by “the refusal to comply with certain laws or to pay taxes and fines, as a peaceful form of political protest.” With this in mind I believe Antigone did commit civil disobedience. Her reluctance in following the law when it came to her brothers burial, or lack of, made her go against the king’s law. While I don’t feel like she was purposely doing this to make a statement, her non violent approach to defying a higher up is textbook definition of civil disobedience.
