Summary
"Antigone, the renowned insurgent from Sophocle's Oedipus, 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. Antigone proves to be a more ambivalent figure for feminism than has been acknowledged, 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, Antignone shows how the constraints of normative kinship unfairly decide what will and will not be a liveable life."--BOOK JACKET
