Read 2 reviews from the world's largest community for readers/5. Jean Anouilh’s Antigone was first published and went to stage in during the Nazi occupation of France.

Anouilh’s interpretation of Sophocles' Greek tragedy soon became a symbol for the French Resistance as freedom fighters saw the heroine's civil disobedience and defiance to tyranny as a condemnation of collaboration with the Nazis/5.

This paper will explore the reworking of Antigone by Jean Anouilh, in comparison to Sophocles' Antigone. Anouilh reworked and produced Antigone as a protest against the fascist regime in France, imposed by Hitler after his army occupied the country during the Second World War.

Jean Anouilh, in full Jean-Marie-Lucien-Pierre Anouilh, (born JBordeaux, France—died Oct. 3,Lausanne, Switz.), playwright who became one of the strongest personalities of the French theatre and achieved an international reputation.

Antigone, an adaptation of Sophocles's classic produced in the context of the anti-fascist French resistance, is Anouilh's most often-produced work today.

Antigone premiered in Paris inbut Anouilh had written his tale of lone rebellion against the state two years earlier, inspired by an act of resistance during Paris's occupation by the Nazis.

Jean Marie Lucien Pierre Anouilh (French: [ʒɑ̃ anuj]; 23 June – 3 October ) was a French dramatist whose career spanned five decades.

Though his work ranged from high drama to absurdist farce, Anouilh is best known for his play Antigone, an adaptation of Sophocles' classical drama, that was seen as an attack on Marshal Pétain's Vichy ry movement: Modernism. Becket or The Honour of God (French: Becket ou l'honneur de Dieu) is a play written in French by Jean is a depiction of the conflict between Thomas Becket and King Henry II of England leading to Becket's assassination in It contains many historical inaccuracies, which the author acknowledged.

[citation neededCited by: 4. Along with Anouilh, writers and dramatist across Europe expressed a renewed fascination with Antigone and “it is perhaps no surprise that at the centre of the largest political upheaval the Western world had yet to see, Antigone was centre stage, embodying the base components of all humanity– rebellion, war, and conflict.”.

Antigone sneaks in and the Nurse appears and asks where she has been. Suddenly Ismene enters, also asking where Antigone has been. Antigone sends the Nurse away for coffee. Ismene declares that they cannot bury Polynices and that she must understand Creon's intentions.

Antigone refuses and bids Ismene to go back to bed. Jean Anouilh's retelling of "Antigone" stages the inescapably wrenching central confrontation between Antigone and Creon by presenting Bujold and Fritz Weaver seated at a long, executive-suite table--a hallmark of Anouilh's play/5(28).

Becket or The Honour of God (French: Becket ou l'honneur de Dieu) is a play written in French by Jean Anouilh. It is a depiction of the conflict between Thomas Becket and King Henry II of England leading to Becket's assassination in Through a collaboration between director Tyrone Grima, producer and actress Sharon Bezzina, and Teatru Manoel, Jean Anouilh’s adaptation of the 2,year-old story of Antigone will be set in a.

Mclntyre, H. Anouilh's Antigone is determined to adhere to her convictions at all costs. Her convictions drive her to bury her brother Polynices in defiance of Creon 's edict.

In so doing she seems to be a paragon of integrity; not even the prospect of being sealed alive in a cave deters her. The myth of Antigone has been established as a preeminent one in political and philosophical debate. One incarnation of the myth is of particular interest here.
