Hello everyone, if you have followed the instructions, you have either read or watched Sophocles’ Antigone.  Here are two questions I would like you to answer:

First, I want you to choose a particularly relevant line from the play, quote it, and tell us why you think it is important to you.  For example, I like this quote from the character Haemon:

“For any man, even if he’s wise, there’s nothing shameful in learning many things, staying flexible.”

I like this quote because it reveals one of Creon’s (many) character flaws. And I also like it because I think that it is true that all people should engage in life-long learning; there’s always something more to know.

Second, I want you to think about the issue of the conflict between church and state.  There have been a number of issues recently where this conflict has come to the fore in our society (Obamacare and gay marriage, for example).  I’d like you to find a current controversy regarding church or conscience versus the government, and let tell us how you think it is similar to or different than the trial faced by Antigone.
