Has much more sympathy for Antigone from the overall text. Jul 12, 2012 - Kreon, her uncle, King of Thebes, decrees that his body will not be buried, but left to rot in the open air, outside the walls of the city. Antigone defies him, citing the unwritten law, or divine law, against the precepts of the city, and is Anne Carson and Bianca Stone's collaborative version of Antigone – Antigonick – is far from a conventional rendering of Sophocles' play. The two sisters are the only surviving children of Oedipus and Jocasta. We see Antigone in great pains in the beginning of the story. State's uncontrolled power that regulates everything even the burial of a brother who is accused to be a traitor for the state, is criticized here by Sophocles.

Sep 24, 2012 - This year's festival features a modernized take on Sophocles' Antigone, drawing parallels to modern political happenings like the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street movements, as well as the importance of social media to those causes. Sep 13, 2010 - In the story, we see that Antigone's brothers Eteocles and Polynices fall down in a war but the king of Thebes, Creon, does not allow a funeral for Polynices whom he accuses as being a traitor.
