Antigone is the third play in Sophocles' "Oedipus" trilogy chronicling the curse on the city of Thebes. After the death of King Oedipus, the city of Thebes falls into chaos, resulting in the deaths of Oedipus' two sons, Eteocles and Polynices. Since Polynices rebelled against the city, the new king, Creon, decrees that his body will not be properly buried, but be left to rot. Antigone, Oedipus' daughter and sister to the two brothers, disobeys her uncle Creon's decree and plots to bury Polynices. By her own private rebellion, Antigone brings on further deaths to the family, fulfilling the ancient curse against Thebes.
