By Bonnie Honig

Sophocles' Antigone is a touchstone in democratic, feminist and criminal idea, and doubtless the main commented upon play within the historical past of philosophy and political thought. Bonnie Honig's rereading of it consequently comprises intervening in a bunch of literatures and unsettling lots of their governing assumptions. Exploring the facility of Antigone in a number of political, cultural, and theoretical settings, Honig identifies the 'Antigone-effect' – which strikes those that enlist Antigone for his or her politics from activism into lamentation. She argues that Antigone's personal lamentations may be noticeable not only as symptoms of dissidence yet quite as markers of a rival international view with its personal sovereignty and energy. Honig argues that the play doesn't supply easily a version for resistance politics or 'equal dignity in death', yet a extra optimistic politics of counter-sovereignty and unity which emphasizes equality in life.
