Antigone brings Sophocles’ great tragic cycle to a close that begins with Oedipus Rex. Although all of the plays in the cycle demonstrate the superb skills of the playwright, Antigone is the most timeless of the three. The play deals with issues still relevant today- the abuse of political power, the importance of familial ties, and the subordinated status of women.
These themes are, of course, not the only important issues addressed by the play. Sophocles has created a literary masterpiece so rife with material for analysis, scholars have been studying Antigone for thousands of years, and there seems to be no end to the valuable insights derived from its passages.
