  1. Are you clear on everything that happens leading up to the actions in the play "Antigone" and the actions in the play itself?

    Why did Antigone say she will bury him? Who is this whom she will bury?
    What crime did he commit?
    Why is Antigone willing to die after she buries him?

    Let me know if you have questions about who Antigone is, whom she wants to bury, who gave the command that he should NOT be buried and why, etc.
