Past tense and Present tense in essay

“Antigone” written by Sophocles shows Antigone, the main character as a tragic hero.

    Thanks, but isn't "written" past tense?

    The verb form "written" is the past participle (used by itself as an adjective, as you have done in your thesis) of the verb "to write," but it can be used to form different tenses if it's used with different auxiliary verbs. Examples:

    has written = present perfect tense, active voice
    had written = past perfect tense, active voice
    has been written = present perfect tense, passive voice
    had been written = past perfect tense, passive voice
