Written By: Sophocles / Translated By: Robert Fagles
A contemporary re-imagining of Sophocles’ classic tragedy, Antigone commences hours after the conclusion of a civil war in which two brothers, Polynices and Eteocles, have killed each other in a battle over the kingship. In an attempt to regain stability in the City, the newly appointed King Creon proclaims that the invading brother, Polynices, be refused burial rights. Creon further decrees than any who defy this order will be put to death. The play centers on Antigone, Polynices’s sister and Creon’s niece, who defies Creon’s law and buries her brother. Antigone poses a conflict between passionate characters whose extreme stances on what is moral leave them incapable of compromise. This highly charged struggle between the individual, family, and the state serves as a revealing reflection of contemporary political tensions. (synopsis adapted from Diane J. Rayor, Sophocles’ Antigone: A New Translation.)
