Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Filled with passionate speeches and sensitive probing of moral and philosophical issues, this powerful drama reveals the grim fate that befalls the children of Oedipus. When Antigone, the daughter of Oedipus, chooses to obey the law of the gods rather than an unconscionable command from Creon, ruler of Thebes, she is condemned to death. How the gods take their revenge on Creon provides the gripping denouement to this compelling tragedy, still one of the most frequently performed of classical Greek dramas. Footnotes.

I would recommend this play to anybody looking for fast paced read. The text is written in a very modern fashion, making it very easy to read and comprehend. The play follows a young girl named Antigone as she decides to break the law to give her brother, who is considered a traitor, a proper burial after his death. The plays brings up ideas of pride and familial obligations as Antigone refuses to back down from doing what she believes is right, despite facing death. The events happen fast in the play so there is never a dull moment. This play is perfect for anyone looking for a thought provoking and action packed read.
