film and analysis

Please watch the first 15 minutes of the following lecture. https://mercer.kanopy.com/video/greek-tragedy-and-sophists (Links to an external site.)

There are two major questions that the lecturer suggests the Greek plays attempt to answer (around minute 13-14 in lecture). Pick one of the questions (provided below) to answer, and write an answer using Antigone as textual evidence to support your argument.

Based on Antigone, how would you answer one of the following questions from the film:

1. “What’s more important, the good of the state, or the rights of the individual?”

2. “Does the individual owe greater allegiance to society or her family? “

This should be approximately 2-3 solid paragraphs and include direct quotations as evidence (the way you would use the text in your evidence-based analysis).
