From Solon to Sophocles: Intertextuality and Interpretation in Sophocles’ Antigone

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper develops from my discussion of the role of traditional Greek thought, and especially the concept of ἄτη, in Sophocles’ Antigone in a recent volume on Tragedy and Archaic Greek Thought. It also complements and extends a more general interpretation of the play offered in my forthcoming Bloomsbury Companion to Antigone.1 Its main focus is the first and second stasima of Sophocles’ play and in particular on what they, their relations with each other, and their relations with other texts, contribute to an overall interpretation.
