Publisher's Summary

Antigone is a famous Greek tragedy attributed to the ancient playwright Sophocles at around 440 BCE. The play expands on the Theban legend of Oedipus that predates it, dealing with Antigone’s burial of her brother Polyneices in defiance of the law and the tragic results of her act. On another level, the play exposes the dangers of the absolute ruler or tyrant in the character of Creon. No one speaks freely to him, so he makes a series of mistakes, illustrating the folly of tyranny.

Poor production

I found it impossible to follow - rather than using different tones of voice, or other techniques, the audio book is just a straight reading of the book, and with the speaker's name included for every line which proved very distracting.
