rationale behind antigone's motive to bury her brother: incest and influence from parents

This museum exhibit is dedicated to explain why among many of popular reasons for Antigone’s desire to bury his brother such as women’s role, love and necessity of burial, incest is a strong contestant to have been an initial motive of Antigone's will to bury his brother. The rationale behind Antigone’s desire to bury her brother, which ultimately drives the plot forward, is incest between Antigone and Polyneices from the influence of her parents, which accords with Freud’s theory regarding the idea of incest as an initial curiosity prevalent in children and the incestuous influence due to children’s estrangement from their parents.
