Antigone's Transformation: Modern Interpretations of the Classic Figure

Antigone is a figure of fascination. She has captured the attention of great
critical minds such as Hegel, Heidegger, Irigaray, and Butler; playwrights

interest in Antigone's story? What are we to make of the newer, more modern
translations of Sophocles's original? How are we to interact with the mass
of critical scholarship written about Antigone?
