By the end of the play, Antigone has left the protective walls of her young girl’s chamber for the field where her brothers are dying, for her con-Cited by: 6.

In Greek mythology, Antigone (/ æ n ˈ t ɪ ɡ ə n i / ann-TIG-ə-nee; Ancient Greek: Ἀντιγόνη) is the daughter of Oedipus and either his mother Jocasta or is a sister of Polynices, Eteocles, and Ismene.

The meaning of the name is, as in the case of the masculine equivalent Antigonus, "worthy of one's parents" or "in place of one's parents". Messenger - Another typical figure of Greek drama who also appears in Sophocles' Antigone, the Messenger is a pale and Another Antigone book boy who bears the news of death.

In the prologue, he casts a menacing shadow: as the Chorus notes, he remains apart from the others in his premonition of Haemon's death. This book does fair justice to the original, in being a play, a tragedy, spartan (pun intended) in presentation, and without the Disneyesque happy ending expected in our culture.
