Just Me
What more do you want? [Antigone by Frederic Leighton, 1882]


Traumatic Childhood
Finding out that I'm the daughter of my dad and his mom (my grandma!) and then watching Dad gouge out his own eyes... yeah, I'd say that was traumatic. [Blind Oedipus Commending His Children to the Gods by Bénigne Gagneraux, 1784]


Mean Thebans
For the record, Thebans are jerks. It's not like Dad meant to bring a plague on them. [Oedipus and Antigone by Charles Jalabert, 1842]


The Wilderness
I won't lie—wandering the wilderness with Dad was not fun. [Oedipus and Antigone by Antoni Brodowski, 1828]


Burying Polyneices
No regrets. It was the right thing to do. [Antigone in front of the dead Polynices by Nikiphoros Lytras, 1865]
