Author: Sophocles
Reviewer's Age: Grade 10

Antigone, by Sophocles, is one of my favorite plays. Its main character, Antigone, is a strong and determined girl, who is loyal to her family. She is put in a horrible situation in which there is no easy way out, and deals with it the best she can. Antigone is a great book and I think anybody would enjoy it. Antigone is a great tragedy. It is one of the best, because everyone can fear and pity almost everything in the story. The reader fears that they may end up in a position like Antigone where there is no way out. Antigone is pitied because she has to endure cruel punsihments just for respecting her brother. Antigone is one of the best books I have ever read. I think this book would entertain almost anybody. Antigone is a story of honor, pride, and punishments.
