Reflections on Sophocles' Antigone, a three part series recorded in the late 1980's. In this first part of the series Gil Bailie shows how Sophocles expands the horizon of the play from what appears to be a conflict between duty to the state and duty to god to include the vast scope of human endeavor whose only limit is our mortality. Sophocles is asking his 5th century BCE audience what it means to be human.
