Antigone's line


If the death of tragedy can be asserted with confi dence from the perspective of Friedrich Nietzsche, not everybody was invited to the funeral: Antigone, for instance. As many times as she dies, she comes alive, reborn time and again, born anew each time she enters the theatrical stage, inserting herself into a new political history, providing a commentary on the history of a people, embodying the hopes for the rebirth of a nation. What accounts for this incessant rebirth of Antigone in widely divergent, international, political contexts? © 2010 State University of New York. All rights reserved.
