The Burial at Thebes

The Burial at ThebesT0
Two brothers die fighting on opposite sides of the civil war in Thebes. When Creon, the new ruler, refuses to bury the brother who was a traitor, Antigone, the rebel's sister, defies Creon by vowing to bury him herself. A translation of Sophocles' Antigone. Originally commissioned to mark the centenary of Dublin's Abbey Theatre in 2004, and partly inspired by the war in Iraq, Heaney's captivating and lyrical adaptation lends Sophocles' tragic heroine, Antigone, a 21st century voice.
Author Seamus Heaney
