Surname1 Subject Professor’s Name Student’s Name Affiliation Date Sophocles Introduction The theme of conflict is one of the major ones in Sophocles’ play. Antigone is the protagonist in the play. She is the sister to Ismene, Eteocles, and polyneices. Her two brothers murdered each other during a war and the King, Creon, and her Uncle gave an order that Eteocles is to be given a befitting burial while Polyneices body is to be abandoned. This is the primary cause of conflict between Antigone and Creon. On the other hand, Creon is the king of Thebes city. Creon considers Polyneices to be a traitor and therefore cannot be given a proper burial. Most of the themes in the play are similar to many contemporary issues.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
