Description The myth of Antigone remained relevant in the twentieth century, and new plays inspired by this myth appeared not only in the West but also in Slavonic drama during and after WW2. Oppressed societies, abuses of power, persecution and execution of political and ideological opponents create a fertile ground for a creative return to the Sophoclean tragedy. Some of the new plays have roots in the trauma of WW2, others in post-war Soviet domination. Significantly, these plays attach growing importance to the character of Creon. Among the discussed playwrights are two Serbs, Jovan Hristić and Oto Bihajli-Merin, two Croats, Marijan Matković and Drago Ivanišević, and the Slovene, Dominik Smole; four Poles, Artur Marya Swinarski, Krystyna Berwińska, Nora Szczepańska, and Roman Brandstaetter; one Slovak, Peter Karvaš, and one Czech, Milan Uhde.
Mit o Antigoni je v dvajsetem stoletju ohranil svoj pomen in nove drame, ki jih je navdihnil, se niso pojavljale samo na Zahodu, temveč tudi v slovanski dramatiki med drugo svetovno vojno in po njej. Družbena represija, oblastna zloraba, preganjanje in pobijanje političnih in ideoloških nasprotnikov – vse to je ustvarilo plodna tla za ustvarjalno vrnitev Sofoklove tragedije. Korenine nekaterih od teh novih dram so segle v travmo druge svetovne vojne, korenine drugih v povojno sovjetsko dominacijo. Pomenljivo je, da v teh dramah vse večji pomen dobiva lik Kreonta. Med obravnavanimi dramatiki sta dva Srba, Jovan Hristić in Oto Bihajli-Merin, dva Hrvata, Marijan Matković in Drago Ivanišević, ter Slovenec Dominik Smole; štirje Poljaki, Artur Marya Swinarski, Krystyna Berwińska, Nora Szczepańska in Roman Brandstaetter; ter po en Slovak, Peter Karvaš, in en Čeh, Milan Uhde.
