Antigone

Antigone

Sophocles is one of three ancient Greek tragedians whose plays have survived. Seven of his plays have survived in a complete form: Ajax, Antigone, Trachinian Women, Oedipus the King, Electra, Philoctetes, and Oedipus at Colonus. Antigone is a tragedy that takes place after Oedipus has just passed away in Colonus. Antigone and her sister decide to return to Thebes with the intention of helping their brothers, Eteocles and Polyneices, avoid a prophecy that predicts they will kill each other in a battle for the throne of Thebes.\n\n
