“Sections [of this vol.] detail Sophocles’ use of contrast and introduce the play’s theme, language, plot, and character. A section on maxims provides a lead-in to the “NEXUS four-step method of explication.” Another section explains how plays taught Athenians to debate, reason, and make decisions democratically; “Antigone’s Challenge” uses the play’s language alongside contemporary parallels to situate Antigone’s defiance of authority…” – THE COLLEGE BOARD
