This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

INTRODUCTION. 

There are five plays extant which relate to the fortunes 
of the house of CEdipus. Of these five, Sophocles wrote 
three,— (Edipus the King, (Edipus at Colonns, and the 
Antigone. Taken according to the order of events, the 
Antigone is latest of all, and brings to a close the dark 
history of the house of Laius. Next before the Anti- 
gone comes the Seven against Thebes of ^schylus, then 
(Edipus at Colonus, and, at the beginning of the series, 
(Edipus the King. The remaining play, the Phoenissae 
of Euripides, is mainly cotemporary with the Seven 
against Thebes: but there is some conftision, because in 
the (Edipus at Colonus the disappearance from earth of 
(Edipus is narrated, whereas in the Phcenissa he is repre- 
sented as still alive. 



ARGUMENT. 

The turning-point of the Antigone is reyerence for the 
dead, and the importance of the sacred rites of hurial. 

The heroine's brothers, Eteocles and Polynices, had both 
fallen in battle, each by the other's hand. But one had 
fallen defending his country ; the other invading it, (right- 
fully, it might be, but still invading,) with the help of 
foreign allies. Hence the funeral honours paid to Eteo« 
cles are denied to Polynices ; and a decree is issued, com- 
manding that his dead body be cast out to the birds of the 
air, and the beasts of the field, and denouncing curses and 
death upon any one who should presume to disobey. But 
the menaces of an unholy edict have no power with Anti- 
gone. The last time she and her brother had met, (it was 
when he was on his march against Thebes, from which he 
had turned aside to obtain his father's blessing, and she 
with filial devotion was fulfilling her last duties to the 
exile,) he had implored her not to leave his corse unburied ; 
and now, disregarding alike Creon's threats, her sister's self- 
ishness, and her own hopes, she dares to be true to her 
promise, and to fellow the promptings of a sister's love. 

She is detected, and doomed to death. From this point 
the catastrophe begins. 

Creon must reap the fruits of his blind and unholy 
severity, in the deaths of his wife Eiirydice and his only- 
surviving son, Hsemon, in the utter rnin of his whole 
house, and in the bitterness of unavailing remorse. 



ANALYSIS. 

The scene is laid at Thebes, in front of the royal palace : 
on the left hand is seen a street leading into the city ; on the 
right, in the distance, a plain, skirted by hills, which has 
lately been the scene of battle. Time, daybreak on the 
morning after the battle, and retreat of the Argive host, 
which had been beleaguering the city. (See v. 16.) 

Scene i. (1 — 99). Enter Antigone, followed by Ismene. 
Antigone informs her sister of Creon's decree, forbidding 
funeral rights to Polynices ; declares her intention to dis- 
obey it, and invites her aid. Ismene tries to dissuade her, 
but is answered with indignant scorn. They separate: 
Ismene retiring into the palace; Antigone departing by 
another way, to execute her purpose of burying her 
brother. 

100 — 161. The Theban elders (composing the Chorus), 
who have been summoned by Creon, come forward. They 
greet the sun, which is just beginning to be seen above 
the horizon, as ushering in a day of deliverance from 
the enemy. Hence they pass on to describe the advance 
of the enemy, and his overthrow; ascribing the victory 
to Zeus. While they are speakings— 

Enter Creon. 

Scene iL (162 — 881). He informs the Chorus of his suc- 
cession to the throne, lays before them his views of the 
government, and justifies and repeats hia edict respecting 



yiii ANALYSIS. 



the body of Polynices, charging the Chorns to see it ful- 
filled (211—222). 

It will be remembered that Antigone had already gone 
for the purpose of performing the necessary rites for her 
brother. She has succeeded in scattering, unobserved, a 
few handfuls of dust over the body, just enough to satisfy 
the retjuirements of religion. The fact» though not the 
author of it, has been noticed, and a watchman now comes 
to report what has taken place to Creon. The Chorus 
suggests, that what has been done has been by the inter- 
vention of the gods ; but Creon rebukes them, and threatens 
the watchman with punishment, for neglect of duty, if he 
do not quickly discover the ofiender. Exit Creon (326), 
into the palace, and the watchman by the way that he 
had come, towards the plain where the body is lying. 

382 — 883. Tlie Chorus, astonished that any one should 
have the audacity to disobey Creon's commands, admires 
the daring and versatility of men in their various pursuits : 
e.g. seamanship (335 — 7); husbandry (339-40); hunt- 
ing, in its several kinds (341 — 353) ; rhetoric (354) ; civil 
government (355), and medicine (354 — 362); but deplores 
the too frequent perversion of these gifts (362 — 375). 

(Meanwhile, Antigone, having observed that the earth 
which she had cast upon the body of Polynices has been 
swept off, has tried to bury the body, but has been detected 
in the act.) The Chorus now breaks off its strain, observ- 
ing the approach of Antigone in custody of those who had 
been set to guard the body (375 — 383). 

Scene iii. (384 — 582). Enter watchman, inquiring for 
Creon. Antigone in custody. 

Creon comes out; the watchman relates the circum- 



ANALT8I8. IZ 

Stances of the detection of Antigone. She, being charged 
by Creon, not only does not deny, bnt justifies and exults' 
in, the deed. 

During their altercation, enter Ismene, who has come in' 
obedience to Creon's summons. 

530. Creon charges her, suspecting her of having 
aided Antigone. She, desirous of atoning for the selfish 
timidity which she had evinced before, professes herself to 
have been an accomplice, and claims to share Antigone's 
punishment ; but the latter indignantly disclaims her sister's 
having taken any part in the work. Ismene then tries to 
move Creon to pity; but he remains obdurate. 

The Chorus (582 — 630), observing the race of Labdacus 
now almost arrived at the consummation of misery, is led 
to refiect how calamity attaches itself and spreads. The 
cause is traced maiuly to impiety, which excites the wrath 
of the gods. 

Scene iv. (632 — 780.) Enter Hsmon. Creon addresses 
him, expecting to find him exasperated on account of the 
sentence against Antigone, his betrothed. But seeing him 
apparentiy acquiescing in what has been done, he com- 
mends him, and exhorts him to forget Antigone, as one 
who has' forfeited all claim to his love, through her disobe- 
dience (640 — 680). But Hsemon answers cautiously, ad- 
vising his father not to be extreme in his wrath, lest he 
excite the discontent of the people, with whom Antigone is 
popular, for her piety and nobleness of heart (683 — 723). 

Creon becomes very indignant at this, and, after a violent 
altercation, in the course of which Hsemon hints that he 
will lay violent hands on himself if Antigone is pnt to death,

INTRODUCTION. 

This play takes us back to the time of the Trojan war, 
and, like the " Ajax/' it is founded upon the misfortunes of 
one of the heroes of that enterprize. 

Philoctetes, the son of Poeas, had been the friend and 
companion of Herculesi and at the death of that hero had 
recelTed from him his bow and arrows, which had been 
steeped in the blood of the Hydra. It was this gift, as some 
say, which was the cause of his sufferings. On the break- 
ing out of the Trojan war, Philoctetes, who had been one 
of the suitors of Helen, was summoned to join the Greek 
army. On his way to Troy, he accidentally received a 
hurt in the foot from one of the arrows. The wound be- 
came ulcerated, and the cries of Philoctetes, together with 
the offensiveiiess of the wound, so disheartened the whole 
army, that the chiefs, on the suggestion of Ulysses, re- 
solved to put him ashore at Lemnos, and leave him to 
his fate. 

Another account (which Sophocles has followed) says 
that the wound was caused by a serpent, which bit him, 
as he was in search of an altar, in the island of Chrysa, 
(note v. 196). 



VI INTRODUCTION. 

After ten years of ineffectual efforts to take Troy, the 
Greeks were told that they could never succeed without 
the arrows of Hercules. 

Ulysses and Neoptolemus were therefore dispatched in 
quest of Philoctetes, with directions to hring him back to 
the army. With their arrival at Lemnos the argument of 
the play begins. 

Neoptolemus, counselled by Ulysses, makes himself 
known to Philoctetes, and pretends that he is on his way 
home from Troy, disgusted by certain wrongs and insulta 
which he says he has received from the Greek chiefs. By. 
this means he wins the confidence of Philoctetes, and gets 
possession of the bow aud arrows. The plot is well-nigh 
accomplished, when Neoptolemus is struck with remorse, 
reveals the design, and in spite of Ulysses, who at this 
moment comes up, restores the bow to Philoctetes. 

Neoptolemus now tries to pertuade Philoctetes to ac« 
company him to Troy, but in vain, and the play has 
reached its dignus vindice nodfu, when the god Hercules 
descends, and overcomes the scruples of Philoctetes. 



ANALYSIS. 

Scene I. (1 — ^50.) Scene — Lemnos, a rocky coast. 

Enter Ulysses, Neoptolemus, and an attendant. Ulysses 
relates how some years before he had left on this island the 
son of Pceas. Somewhere near that very spot the cavern 
should be ; he bids Neoptolemus look for it, — who, going 
forward a little, descries it, and looking cautiously in, dis- 
covers signs enough to convince him that it is the habita- 
tion of him they are in quest of. 

(54—134.) Ulysses now unfolds his plan. Neoptolemus 
must seek Philoctetes, win his confidence, and get pos- 
session of the famous bow and arrows, without which Troy 
can never fall. Neoptolemus is at first unwilling to deal 
so treacherously, but at last yields to the arguments ot 
Ulysses, who, after concerting means of communication 
with him, retires, leaving on the stage Neoptolemus and 
the Chorus. 

(135—219.) After a while, pitying the misery of Phi- 
loctetes, they advance towards the cave. Suddenly the 
Chorus is startled by a voice as of some one in pain, and 
presently — 

Scene II. (220—316.) Philoctetes appears. After hav- 
ing greeted the strangers, and inquired their business, 
he relates his own history: how he had been left upon the 
island; how he had supported life, often hoping to be 
released by strangers who came to the coast, but as often

disappointed. He ends with an imprecation on the Atridse 
for their cruelty. 

(320 — 390.) After Philoctetes, Neoptolemus relates his 
pretended grievance, — the wrong which he had suffered 
from the Greeks, especially the Atrids and Ulysses, in 
heing deprived of his father's armour. 

(403 — 537.) Philoctetes and Neoptolemus, having thus 
found a reason for friendship in hatred to their common 
enemies, converse awhile ahout various chieftains, whom 
Philoctetes asks ahout in the Greek army. At last Neop- 
tolemus moves, as if to proceed on his voyage. Philoc- 
tetes begs to he taken with him. The Chorus seconds his 
request, and Neoptolemus assents. Philoctetes expresses 
his gratitude, and prepares to take leave of the cavern 
which has sheltered him so long. 

The Chorus announces the approac^h of two strangers. 

Scene 111.(542—675.) Enter one in the dress of a mer« 
chant, conducted by one of the crew of Neoptolemus. 

The merchant tells Neoptolemus that the chiefs before 
Troy have sent two expeditions, — one in pursuit of him, and 
the other, commanded by Ulysses, in quest of Philoctetes^ 
Philoctetes hearing this, urges Neoptolemus to get the 
start of their pursuers, and sail away. He himself needs 
but to get from the cave some assuaging herbs, and see that 
he has left none of his arrows behind, and he will be ready 
to depart. Neoptolemus expressing a wish to examine and 
handle the arrows, Philoctetes, suspecting no treachery, 
puts them into his hands ; and then, supported by him, 
into the cave (675 — 730.) 



ANALYSIS. IX 

The Chorus compassionBtes the undeserved sufferings of 
Philoctetes, and rejoices that now, having met with a gene* 
rous friend, he will return to his home, and he in peace. 

ScBNE IV. (780 — 827.) Re-enter Neoptolemus and Phi- 
loctetes, from the cave. Suddenly Philoctetes feels the 
symptoms of his agony recurring, and tries to conceal it, 
hut is at last overcome. He commits his how and arrows 
to Neoptolemus, imploring him not to forsake him, nor to 
give them to any other, and at last, exhausted hy pain, 
falls asleep. 

(828 — 864.) The Chorus, invoking a continuance of 
sleep upon Philoctetes, urges Neoptolemus to seize the 
opportunity and get on hoard. He answers, that it is 
necessary for their success that Philoctetes should accom- 
pany theuL 

(865—1080.) Their talk is interrupted hy signs of Phi. 
loctetes awaking. His gratitude to Neoptolemus for not 
leaving him, — declares himself now ready to go. Neop- 
tolemus hegins to he struck with scruples at the deceit he 
has heen practising, hesitates, and then reveals all to Phi- 
loctetes, who at first uphraiding him, then hegs him to 
restore to him the how and arrows, and leave him alone, as 
he had found him. Neoptolemus, ahout to yield to pity, is 
stopped hy the coming up of Ulysses, who, after some 
Altercation, hids his attendants hind Philoctetes, and take 
him on hoard ; hut Philoctetes imprecates such ourses, that 
Ulysses is constrained to leave him. 

Philoctetes now appeals again to Neoptolemus, who, 
hoping that he may yet he induced voluntarily to accom- 



X ANALYSIS. 

pany them to Troy» agrees to let the Chorus stay with him 
until the ship is ready to sail. (Exeunt Ulysses and 
Neoptolemus, leaving Philoctetes and the Chorus.) 

' Scene V. ( 1081 — 1220.) Philoctetes, addressing the cayes 
and rocks, hewails that he has now no hopes of deliverance, 
and no means of procuring himself food, curses the de- 
signer of the plot against him (1112), whom he sees in 
fancy exulting in its success (1128), calls upon the hirds 
and beasts to come and glut themselves upon him now 
defenceless (1155), and begs for a sword that he may 
destroy himself (1205). The Chorus, partly rebuking, 
partly entreating, tries in vain to induce him to relent 
At last, two persons are seen approaching, (Philoctetes 
goes into the cave,) and presently — 

Scene VI. (1220.) Enter Neoptolemus, followed by Ulys- 
ses, in altercation with him. Neoptolemus declares his 
intention to make amends to Philoctetes for his treachery, 
and give him back his bow and arrows ; which, after find- 
ing Philoctetes inexorable in his resolution not to go to 
Troy, he does, in spite of the protestations of Ulysses. 
Yielding to the prayers of Philoctetes, Neoptolemus now 
consents fiirther to fulfil the promise, which he had before 
made in deceit, of conveying him away to his home, and is 
only prevented by the interference of Hercules, who 

Scene VII. (1410.) descends, and bids Philoctetes go to 
Troy, and fiilfll the destiny which awaits him there.
