Explain in your essay how Antigone and Creon can be interpreted in the way you have chosen. Why do their interests clash with each other? Is this clash a tragic inevitability, do you think, or is it caused more by the way one or both of them behaves? Is Antigone more a tragedy about how things ARE between the individual and the state? Or is Antigone more a tragic warning about how the individual and the state COULD conflict with each other under similar circumstances?
