Antigone by Sophocles Book Summary:

The curse placed on Oedipus lingers and haunts a younger generation in this new and brilliant translation of Sophocles' classic drama. The daughter of Oedipus and Jocasta, Antigone is an unconventional heroine who pits her beliefs against the King of Thebes in a bloody test of wills that leaves few unharmed. Emotions fly as she challenges the king for the right to bury her own brother. Determined but doomed, Antigone shows her inner strength throughout the play. Antigone raises issues of law and morality that are just as relevant today as they were more than two thousand years ago. Whether this is your first reading or your twentieth, Antigone will move you as few pieces of literature can. To make this quintessential Greek drama more accessible to the modern reader, the Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Classics edition of Antigone includes a glossary of difficult terms, a list of vocabulary words, and convenient sidebar notes.

Antigone by Sophocles Book Summary:

Kreon, the king of Thebes, has decreed that his nephew, the rebel soldier Polynices, will lie where he died in battle, as food for the birds and dogs. But Polynices' sister Antigone gives him a proper burial, even knowing that Kreon's penalty is death by stoning. Kreon's son Hamon, who is engaged in marriage to Antigone, pleads for her life, but is rebuffed by his father, and Hamon renounces him. The fortune-teller Tiresias warns Kreon that his son will die by the end of the day — dead for the dead — and the Chorus persuades the shaken Kreon to relent and save Antigone. But it is too late. Both Antigone and Hamon have killed themselves.

Antigone by Jean Anouilh Book Summary:

Le personnage d'Antigone est l'allégorie de la Résistance s'opposant aux lois édictées par Créon / Pétain, qu'elle juge iniques. Elle refuse la facilité et préfère se rebeller, ne voulant pas céder à une prétendue fatalité... Créon pour sa part, revendique de faire un "sale boulot" parce que c'est son rôle et qu'il faut bien que quelqu'un le fasse. Anouilh s'inspire du geste de Paul Collette, un résistant français qui avait tiré sur Pierre Laval, chef du gouvernement de Vichy, le 27 août 1941. Jean Anouilh, en écrivant cette pièce de théâtre, trouve ainsi le moyen de dénoncer la passivité de certains face aux lois dictées par les nazis. Antigone symbolise la résistance qui s'obstine malgré les dangers encourus. Le public afflue dans des salles chauffées et oublie un temps les horreurs de la seconde Guerre mondiale.

Antigone by Sophocles Book Summary:

Antigone by Sophocles. Translated by Sir George Young. Presented by the Online Stage. Sophocles (497 BC-406 BC), Aeschylus, and Euripides formed a trio of ancient Greek tragedians whose works represent the foundation of the Western tradition of classic drama. Of the more than 100 plays written by Sophocles, seven have survived to the present day. Perhaps the most famous of these are the three that are now known as the Theban plays: Oedipus the King, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone. After the death of their father, Oedipus, Antigone and Ismene return to Thebes. The ruler is their unyielding uncle by marriage, Creon, who assumed command after the death of the sons of Oedipus, Eteocles, and Polynices in a fratricidal struggle to take control of the city. Creon has the body of one brother buried with full civic honors but forbids the burial of the body of the other, whom he regards as a traitor. Antigone's challenge to Creon's decree, which she considers unjust, results in the extinction of the family line of Oedipus. Cast: Libby Stephenson as Antigone, Amanda Friday as Ismene, Alan Weyman as Creon, Marty Kris as First Senator, Peter Tucker as Sentinel, Jennifer Fournier as Haemon, John Burlinson as Tiresias, K. G.Cross as Messenger in Attendance on Creon, Cate Barratt as Eurydice; Chorus performed by Brett Downey, Elizabeth Klett, Ed Humpal, and Cate Barratt; stage directions read by Grace Garrett.
