Excerpt: . That they may do and speak what things they will. Cre. All Thebes sees this with other eyes than thine. Ant. They see as I, but bate their breath to thee. 509 Cre. And art thou not ashamed, from them to differ? Ant. To reverence a brother is not shameful. Cre. And was not he who died for Thebes thy brother? Ant. One mother bore us, and one sire begat. Cre. Yet, honouring both, thou dost dishonour him. Ant. He in the grave will not subscribe to this. Cre. How, if no less thou dost revere the guilty? Ant.

   Read under candlelight, as it was written under it
I had to read this for a class and don 't regret it. Something that everyone should probably read in their lives at least once.
   My favorite play
I have loved this play since I first read it for the theatre class. I have in her beliefs the unaltering faith that Antigone possesses. She is my favorite character from a play, and this is by far my favorite play.
   Idiomatic Translation
One of the most important lines in the play is that six translators have rendered : 1) Your heart is hot to do cold deeds. 2) You have so hot a heart that makes the blood run cold. 4) Hot things are wrapped around your cold heart, my dear sister! 5) Fiery is a thy mood, although thy deeds could chill the very blood. 6) Thou has a hot heart for chilling deeds. Braun is spent as this ardor of yours is rendered on ashes. Thus the theme of hot and cold, rash and reasonable is undermined at the beginning. In fact, the Greek states are '' . This corresponds exactly to the hotcold dichotomy in the six translations.
   Easy read, the translation is simple enough to get ...
The translation is simple enough, the translation is easy to read in an hour. Read it for a class, but would recommend the story in general.
