Antigone uninterrupted : Antigone's biographical tale of learning from tragic counsel

Wendy Bustamante (Author)
"'Antigone Uninterrupted' seeks to demonstrate how contemporary scholarship obscures some of the insights that Sophocles' Antigone offers by placing the play into contemporary frameworks, highlighting social and political concerns. This book proposes that considering the play in the context of Sophocles' other Theban plays, and specifically reading them in the order of Antigone's biographical trajectory (Oedipus Rex, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone), allows for a more transparent insight into Antigone's understanding of tragic mortality. Providing illuminating readings of both Sophocles' tragedies and some key modern interpretations of the plays, this book holds broad appeal for those interested in subjects such as political science, gender theory, queer theory, literary criticism, theology, and sociology, to name a few"-- Provided by publisher
