“… we tell ourselves that
 the old-fashioned question
 ‘Who is the protagonist?’
  is a meaningless one.”

Wayne C. Booth, p. 346 in
The Rhetoric of Fiction (1961),
as quoted by Paul Wake in
The Storyteller in Chance

“I argue that Sophocles did not intend to present either Antigone or Creon as the hero/heroine for his tragic play, as Hegel, Kierkegaard, and others stipulate. Rather, Sophocles presents the Chorus and the Watchman as the true heroic figures.”

–“A Burkean Reading of the Antigone: Comical and Choral Transcendence,” by Rebecca McCarthy, Kaplan University
