Opinion Of Antigony, By Sophocles. Talks About What I Liked About The Story And Why.

624 words - 2 pages

AntigoneThe story of Antigone is a well-written play by Sophocles. Most of the writing in the strophe, and the antistrophe is metaphoric and quite poetic.

Antigone is probably the strongest...
