Sophocles: ANTIGONE

Discussion questions from the meeting of Feb. 27:

1. Is the future of Thebes threatened more by Antigone’s insistence on freedom of religion, or by Creon’s determination to restore law and order?

2. Does Sophocles imply that people should disobey bad laws?

3. Is Antigone any more responsible for her fate than Oedipus was responsible for his, or were they both doomed because of the curse on the whole family?
