The ancient Greek "Antigone" involves two sons and two daughters of mother-loving Oedipus, lately departed king of Thebes, and his brother-in-law, Creon, who has now become king. The two brothers have had a civil war and have killed each other, and Creon, full of righteousness and edicts, has ordained that one of the brothers be left unburied-carrion for dogs and vultures. Antigone, a sister, defies the edict, heaps earth upon the dishonored corpse, and is buried alive for punishment. This sets off a chain of suicides which rocks old Creon to his base.
