oa Acta Classica : Proceedings of the Classical Association of South Africa - The Antigone of Sophocles and Anouilh: a comparison

Volume 2, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0065-1141



Tries to show some of the main differences between the Antigone of Sophocles and that of the modern Jean Anouilh. Feels a comparison of this drama with the original tragedy by Sophocles can throw light on the essential differences between ancient and modern drama. Hopes to show it to be possible to admire both these dramas as the manifestation, in two very different ages, of the power which this myth has over the minds of men.
