        4.  

        Antigone was one of the daughters of Oedipus, that tragic
        figure of male power who had been cursed by Gods for
        mistakenly killing his father and subsequently marrying
        his mother and assuming the throne of Thebes. After
        the death of Oedipus civil war broke out and a battle
        was waged in front of the seventh gate of Thebes-his
        two sons led opposing factions and at the height of the
        battle fought and killed each other. Oedipus brother,
        Creon, uncle of Antigone, was now undisputed master
        of the city.

        Creon resolved to make an example of the
        brother who had fought against him, Polynices, by
        refusing the right of honourable burial. The penalty of
        death was promulgated against any who should defy
        this order.
        Antigone was distraught. Polynices had been left
        unburied, unwept, a feast of flesh for keen eyed carrion
        birds. Antigone asks her sister Ismene, for it was a
        challenge to her royal blood. “Now it is time to show
        weather or not you are worthy of your royal blood. Is he
        not my brother and yours ? Whether you like it or not ? I
        shall never desert him-never !” But Ismene responds,
        “How could you dare - when Creon has expressly
        forbidden it ? Antigone, we are women, it is not for us to
        fight against men”. With a touch of bitterness, Antigone
        releases her sister from the obligation to help her, but
        argues she cannot shrug off the burden. “If I die for it
        what happiness! Live, if you will live, and defy the holiest
        of laws of heaven.”
