Antigone is best known from the Sophocles play bearing her name, which is today grouped as one of the Three Theban Plays set in the Greek city-state of Thebes. An adaptation of this tale by French dramatist Jean Anouilh in 1942 stirred up even more interest in Antigone's story and life.
There are many versions of Antigone's story, but in the most popular one, the tale of Sophocles, Antigone is the daughter of Oedipus of Thebes and his mother, Jocasta. After her brother Polynices, a traitor against Thebes during wartime, is killed on the battlefield, Antigone sets out on a mission to ensure he has a proper burial, which their uncle Creon intends to prevent by leaving Polynices as carrion. Since Creon is now ruler of Thebes, he has Antigone walled up alive after she "buries" her brother in the proper manner. Emotionally distraught, Antigone commits suicide.
In one of the most emotional parts of the play, Sophocles writes of Antigone:
Still the same rough winds
The wild passion
Raging through the girl
This fanlisting celebrates those rough winds raging through the tormented Antigone, and serves as a way to connect fans of her, her loyalty, and her story.
