Using comparative techniques, this paper discusses the differences and similarities between Antigone, a fictional character created by ancient Greek writer Sophocles, and Che Guevara, a real life revolutionary of the 20th century who helped form Castro's Cuba.
From the Paper:"Antigone is furious and stunned at the action of Creon and she vows to bury her beloved brother no matter what. She sees both of her brothers in the same light and believes that "traitor or not, [Eteocles and Polyneices are] equal in blood" (111, sc.2). According to her, they are both human and should be treated equally. She tries to get her sister Ismene to help her, but Ismene says "think of the danger! Think of what Creon will do!" (34, Prologue). Antigone leaves her behind and goes on with her work. Antigone draws attention to the difference between God's law and human law."
