Summary:
The third of the three plays of the Oedipus saga, Antigone is perhaps the most easily accessible of all the great classical tragedies, its theme clear and up-to-date: the conflict between moral and political law. Now the tale of Oedipus and his family comes to its end--he, his wife Jocasta, and his sons all dead; at the last, his daughter-who stood by her father-is also destroyed.
