Antigone Essay (Is Antigone a Feminist/Anti-Feminist Play)
Sunday, Oct. 31, 2000
I think Antigone was a feminist play because of three main facts. Antigone was in all the conflicts, even though Creon started them all, even though Creon had all the power, Antigone still won the war between her and Creon, also no woman in her time would even think of doing the things that Antigone did.

heaven” (Sophocles 74-79). Antigone was explaining to the city of Thebes how she is being suffered because of an act she committed to fulfill her deeds of the laws of the gods in heaven, and from love and passion she had towards her brother, Polynieces. In the conflict Antigone vs. Ismene, when Antigone was explaining to her sister, Ismene, about her plan to bury their brother, Ismene didn’t approve, but Antigone again showed feminism.
