Time Spent With the Harvard Classics: Sophocles – Antigone

Tradition states that Sophocles perished on January 30, 405 B.C.  

We have previously discussed the life and legacy of Sophocles elsewhere.  We have also discussed the Thebes tragedies.  Antigone  was written in or about 441 B.C. and is part of trio of Theban plays.  It expands on the Theban legend and picks up where Aeschylus’ Seven Against Thebes ends.

The play Antigone may be read here:
