Antigone is a Greek Tragedy written by Sophocles in 441 BC.
The protagonist, Antigone is a brave and proud young woman. At the beginning of the play, upon her arrival in Thebes, she learns that her brothers are dead. Antigone decides to defy Creon's laws and gives her brothers a proper funeral, while further raising a conflict between law and values.
The play raises issues of law and mortality that are just as relevant today as they were more than two thousands year ago.
