I found this a lot easier to read than I was expecting and ended up enjoying it quite a bit. It speaks to conflicts humans face to this day about doing the right thing and admitting when you're wrong.
The third of the famously poetic Theban plays, *Antigone,* was written by Sophocles around 441 BC. This profound classic remains astonishingly relevant today, over 2000 years after it was written. Sophocles masterfully covers gender stereotypes, tyrannical rulers, and the laws of man versus the divine laws. How much of today's fiction will be read and enjoyed 2000 years from now?
The story of Oedipus' rebellious child Antigone, who decides to risk death from the law and give her brother a proper burial, and a prideful King who has begun to let his power affect his judgment. Good and tragic ending to the Oedipus cycle.
I loved how brave Antigone was. A very interesting story.
This classic tragedy brings up many themes still prevalent today including the balance of state and religion, the power of a ruler, and the duty of family.
