Antigone / Sophocles, various translations, 101 p.

Greek drama from 5th century BCE and read by the classics book group.  Antigone, daughter of Oedipus and his wife/mother Jocasta, defies King Creon and demands a proper burial for her rebel brother Polyneices.  The price for her demand is high, but she refuses to back down, thereby becoming one of literature's first female badasses.  Hooray!
