Antigone by Sophocles shows the final violations of the Oedipus epic’s stark imperative — reverence for the higher order under which all live.
Sophocles’ plays show characters managing religious, political, cultural, familial, and individual forces around them, working through recognizably psychological positions strikingly similar to analytical psychology’s approach to emotional development.
