Elena Asins retrieves this Sophocles tragedy to reflect on the intransigence and inflexibility of the human being, warning us of where the dogmatic obsession with the sweeping fulfilment of laws and the determination of the most elementary beliefs can lead. Only with the compliance of laws that respect man and with dialogue can we avoid the Antigone tragedy repeating itself.
