Sophocles' Antigone is a touchstone in democratic, feminist and criminal conception, and doubtless the main commented upon play within the heritage of philosophy and political concept. Bonnie Honig's rereading of it consequently comprises intervening in a bunch of literatures and unsettling lots of their governing assumptions. Exploring the facility of Antigone in various 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 could be visible not only as indicators of dissidence yet really as markers of a rival global view with its personal sovereignty and power. Honig argues that the play doesn't supply easily a version for resistance politics or 'equal dignity in death', yet a extra confident politics of counter-sovereignty and team spirit which emphasizes equality in life.
