This paper analyzes five Latin American versions of Antigone, not frequently considered. The plays exhibit significant differences with regard to the original, most of them related to painful events in the recent history of the continent. However, the plays have in common with Sophocles' original the permanent anthropological features that have made Antigone a classic, expressed in five fundamental ideas: place, time, transcendence, conflict of legal codes and the Antigone's psychological state.
