Uniform titleAntigone des Sophokles. English
Summary A prologue set in Berlin of 1945 shows two sisters whose brother has deserted from the German army and is found hanged: should they risk being seen by the SS cutting his body down? In the play itself Creon becomes a brutal aggressor who has attacked Argos for the sake of its iron ore; Polyneikes deserts in protest against this war which has killed his brother; and Antigone is partly moved by a like disapproval of her uncle's policy. 'The Antigone of Sophocles' was conceived as a new experiment in the epic theatre, and is linguistically an extraordinary composition. It was first produced in February 1948.
General notePreviously issued in print: in Collected plays eight. London: Methuen Drama, 2004.
