Read this for a Lit class... also, watched a production in class with Sir John Geilgud playing the old oracle.

Excellent book, a great ending to the story.

Antigone's story is a bit of a sad one. For those who haven't read it yet, I'm not going to spoil it for you. But keep in mind, there is a very good reason why it is required reading in many high schools. I read this one after reading "Medea," and I instantly become hooked on all of the Greek authors. Though relatively short compared to other works of that time period, the story is very profound, and tends to keep the reader hooked right up until the end.

I really enjoyed this. It was short but interesting. Though it was written long ago, the characters are easily related to in today's world.
