Antigone – the rebel and her cause

The myth of Antigone begins and ends with death. What should we die for? What do we owe our dead? These are the essential moral questions of the play, dramatised by Sophocles through the conflict between an authoritarian ruler and a defiant young woman standing on principle in the face of overwhelming opposition. These are the questions that each generation feels compelled to answer.
