One of the great Greek Tragedies, The King Creon has decreed that the body of his nephew, the rebel Polynices, is not to be buried. But Antigone, Creon’s niece and sister to Polynices, refuses to accept this dishonor. The Law vs the Rebel, a family’s honor vs the status quo, a King vs the gods—and a niece defying her uncle.

See how students render words centuries old to be in the moment of now!
