The Sophoclean Antigone
We studied a number of plays that were built on the Sophoclean Antigone. Pick two contrasting instances of how Antigone – as a tragic hero, as a citizen, and as a woman – is configured and argue for the merits or failures of the particular configuration. Make sure you account for all three attributes mentioned above – theatricality, politics, gender – and always with attention to the specific historical context of each play.
You will find attached two of the Antigone plays I have chosen, for the Latin American one, I have also attached my notes // highlights especially a propos of gender and politics.
I have also attached the other Antigone play you might choose if you prefer as well as all the articles and readings you might find interesting and pertinent to the paper
