Antigone

???










Daughter of Oedipus, and Jocasta, she was the sister of Ismene, Eteocles and Polynices. She accompanied her blind father and stayed with him at Colonus until his death. Antigone returned to Thebes where, when the war had terminated between her two brothers in which both had been slain, she defied the orders of Creon forbidding the burial of Polynices for having fought against Thebes. In her attempt to bury her brother Antigone was caught. Creon, the new king of Thebes, imprisoned her alive in a cave where she took her own life. Sophocles used the myth to write one of his most moving and powerful tragedies. [p. 60]
