ABSTRACT
With the support of some versions which take Sophocles' Antigone as a point of departure, this essay reflects on the process of rewriting a classic. In a comparative approach, two European Antigones and three in SouthAmerican drama are examined before a discussion of the methods and purposes which the Irish playwrights used when reworking myth in Antigone and other Greek tragedies.
