Create your post, including the following: ? Choose one of the legal or moral themes evident in the play Antigone and discuss how adherence to this principle resulted in the tragedy of the play. ?

Consider the various themes in the play expectations about obedience to the rule of polis, the rule of the gods, the idea of obedience, gender, the idea of ruler and subjects, moral human law vs. divine law, etc. as you draw parallels about morality and legal reasoning. Be sure to relate your reasoning on at least one moral or legal principle that youve read about in our textbook this week! ? Your post will be in the form of a well-written paragraph (note the 200 word minimum above; however, you can always write more than the minimum).
Lecture: Polis and Tragedy in the Antigone The excerpt below is from Polis and Tragedy in the Antigone, an article by Philip Holt (1999). In this excerpt, Holt exams the issue of Creons legal right to forbid the burial of Polynices body and discusses the relationship between the polis (city/government) and the Greek citizenry. As you read this excerpt, weight Holts presentation against the convictions you developed about Creon, Antigone, and other characters in the play. Try to think about how a Greek citizen might feel about the characters and the play. Think about the differences between how a member of the Greek citizenry felt about polis and how 21st century Americans might view this kind of governmental control. Source: Holt, Philip.
