Here are a few resources on Antigone from class: Antigone

And if you get behind or need to review the text, here’s the same translation we read in class, annotated!  Genius Antigone

And check out this Oedipal family bush everyone’s talking about.

You might also find articles such as “Hegel on Antigone”  useful.  Stay tuned as I’ll be posting more as we go.

In class we’re reviewing the play by outlining responses to Antigone prompts.  But one of the things that makes texts like this timeless is their applicability to our lives even now.  Many of us can read the same text at different times in our lives and find new takes on it.  Every time I read an article on a work we study, my eyes are opened a little wider to the breadth and possibilities the work offers.  Don’t worry, I won’t give you more literary criticism, but check out these two videos from England’s National Theatre before you revise your outlines.  Antigone, an introduction.  and Antigone: Creon and Haemon.  Spark any ideas you might add to your response?
