Bonnie Honig's Antigone, Interrupted PDF

By Bonnie Honig

Sophocles' Antigone is a touchstone in democratic, feminist and felony conception, and probably the main commented upon play within the background of philosophy and political idea. Bonnie Honig's rereading of it for that reason includes intervening in a number of literatures and unsettling a lot of their governing assumptions. Exploring the facility of Antigone in quite a few political, cultural, and theoretical settings, Honig identifies the 'Antigone-effect' – which strikes those that enlist Antigone for his or her politics from activism into lamentation. She argues that Antigone's personal lamentations should be noticeable not only as symptoms of dissidence yet really as markers of a rival global view with its personal sovereignty and power. Honig argues that the play doesn't provide easily a version for resistance politics or 'equal dignity in death', yet a extra optimistic politics of counter-sovereignty and team spirit which emphasizes equality in life.
