1.How is this play a warning that a legitimate government will not always pass just laws? How is this issue presented throughout the play?
2. How does this play explore (and what does it reveal) about the conflict or tension between women and men? Remember, Creon sees Antigone as inferior simply because of her gender. Do you think Sophocles saw women as true and legitimate equals to men?
3.What is this play saying about the laws of God (higher laws or divine laws) vs the laws of Mankind (or the state or government)?
