In what way does William Butler Yeats’s poem “From the ‘Antigone’” parallel Sophocles’s Antigone? The speaker in the poem, as well as the chorus in the play, lament noble Antigone’s terrible fate. Like the play, the poem has Ismene trying to dissuade Antigone from defying Creon. The poem and play both describe the moment when Haemon and Eurydice commit suicide after Antigone’s death. The end of the poem shows Creon reduced to a lonely, decrepit man, as does the play.
