Out of more than 120 tragedies written by Sophocles, only seven remain. Antigone is probably the oldest (442 BCE). The renowned Greek playwright, priest and conservative politician wrote it as a mature fifty-year-old. He achieved the deep portraits of two young women – sisters Antigone and Ismene – with remarkable plasticity. They represent two distinct poles and types, which help us fill out the images not only of their private temperaments, but also of their narrower, civic attitudes to life. A story about the illegal burial (or non-burial) of their brother, who is branded an enemy of the state, the essential conflict between Antigone and Creon does not fail to deliver a thrill even nowadays, even if every age compels its own connotations. From our current perspective, we are perhaps inclined to see Antigone as the first female rebel of the European dramatic tradition. A rebel who stops at nothing, even the prospect of her own demise. Antigone sacrifices herself, because she refuses to bow to the authoritarian and corrupt power.
