|a"This Dover edition, first published in 1993, is an unabridged republication of the play Antigone from the volume The Dramas of Sophocles Rendered in English Verse Dramatic & Lyric by Sir George Young, as published by J.M. Dent & Sons, Ltd., London, in 1906"--T.p. verso.
When Antigone, the daughter of Oedipus, chooses to obey the law of the gods rather than an unconscionable command from Creon, ruler of Thebes, she is condemned to death. How the gods take their revenge on Creon provides the gripping denouement to this compelling tragedy, still one of the most frequently performed of classical Greek dramas. Footnotes.
