    [synopsis] => "Antigone" is a Greek tragedy written by Sophocles in the 5th century BCE. The play is part of a trilogy, but only "Antigone," the third installment, has survived. The narrative revolves around Antigone, the daughter of Oedipus, who defies the king's decree and buries her brother Polynices, in defiance of the law. The king, Creon, orders that Polynices' body should remain unburied as punishment for his rebellion against the city.

Antigone's act of burial is not only an expression of familial loyalty but also an assertion of divine laws over human laws. She believes in the moral duty to honor her brother, even in death and is willing to face the consequences. Creon, however, sees her actions as an affront to his authority and issues a decree that anyone attempting to bury Polynices will be put to death.

As the plot unfolds, the clash between divine and human laws intensifies. Antigone is caught and brought before Creon, where she staunchly defends her actions. Creon remains resolute in his decision to punish her, regardless of her familial ties. The play explores themes of morality, duty, and the consequences of pride and authoritarian rule.

Tragedy unfolds as Antigone is sentenced to be entombed alive. The narrative weaves the fates of various characters, including Antigone, Haemon (Creon's son and Antigone's fiancé), and Eurydice (Creon's wife). The play culminates in a series of tragic events, leading to Creon's realization of his own tragic flaw and the devastating consequences of his decisions.
