Did Antigone die in vain?
, Antigone didn’t die in vain. All it took was a visit with the blind prophet Teiresias to change the flow of events. From Teiresias, Theban King Creon learned of the citywide taint from the gorging of birds and dogs on the unburied dead of the Argive invaders and the Theban collaborators. The King repents of his inhumane, unfair and unjust law on non-burials, and of his likewise treatment of his own niece, Antigone.
