The parable Before the Law by Frank Kafka can easily be summarized as this; If You do not try you will not sussed. The county man comes to the gates of the law but when stopped by the doorkeeper and told that he cannot enter, although he is welcome to try because the gate is wide open he is afraid of what the doorkeeper tells him so instead he waits. He waits for such a long time that he grows old and weak. "quote" ( Frank Kafka , Before the Law) He complanes loudly and then in quite grumpily about his predicament. Instead of getting up and trying to walk through the gate he sits and waits for something to change while he dose nothing to change.
The author uses a parable to reflect this idea because it teaches you something , when you know that something is a parable you know that there is something there they are trying to teach you. The law is unchanging unless you ,make it change if no actions are taken by you .
Antigone sees the wrong in her uncles law and is willing to take the risk to change the law and buries her brother. The coast for this is death, but she accepts it and because of her actions the law is changed eventually.
