Beschreibung:

This work argues that Antigone, the renowned insurgent from Sophocles's "Oedipus" and feminist icon, represents a form of sexual and feminist legacy that is fraught with risk. Judith Butler suggests that Antigone shows how the constraints of normative kinship unfairly decide how a life will be led.
Antigone's ClaimUnwritten Laws, Aberrant TransmissionsPromiscuous Obedience
The celebrated author of "Gender Trouble" here redefines Antigone's legacy, recovering her revolutionary significance and liberating it for a progressive feminism and sexual politics. Antigone has long been a feminist icon of defiance. But what has remained unclear is whether she escapes from the forms of power that she opposes, since the form of defiance she exemplifies also leads to her death. Butler argues that Antigone represents a form of feminist and sexual agency that is fraught with risk. Moreover, Antigone shows how a culture of normative heterosexuality obstructs our capacity to see what sexual freedom and political agency could be.
