Community Quote

After unintentionally finding that Aeschylus’ Seven Against Thebes formed a logical continuation of Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex, I was pleased to discover the latter’s Antigone completed a trilogy of sorts, dealing with the same themes – the curse of Oedipus and his descendents.

Antigone Review with images

AdvantagesTimeless theme of resistance to political authority, continuation of Oedipus, great dramatic language

very, very, very funny
you have to understand some classical athenian history and background knowledge (*)
Funny, unpredictable and great drama
A bit too complex ? (*)
Thought provoking - A very simplistic notion, usually disregarded.
Highlights the human condition - hardly uplifting. (*)
Very deep
quite depressing (*)
A wonderful comedy with all the wit of Wilde.
Rather outdated now (*)
similar by Title (First Letter) (A)
complex characters
felt a bit suffocated whilst reading (*)
Intense story of jealousy & betrayal
Requires a good imagination (*)
good stories
that chorus ahhhhh (*)
Quite easy to understand for a modern audience
may require some athenian legal system knowledge (*)
