“Top Bookstore in America!”

Located in Tucson's unique Fourth Avenue shopping district, Antigone Books is a zany bookstore with a feminist slant. Come browse our large selection of books, laugh at our bumper stickers, find that perfect gift, or pick the perfect card. Antigone (an-tig'-uh-nee}, the devoted daughter of Oedipus, king of Thebes in Greek legend, was also the heroine of one of Sophocles' greatest dramas. According to the legend, when Oedipus blinded himself after his marriage to his mother was revealed to him, Antigone shared her father's exile near Athens. After his death, she returned to Thebes and attempted, with her sister Ismene, to reconcile her quarreling brothers Eteocles and Polynices. Both brothers were killed, but her uncle Creon, now king, forbade the burial of Polynices because he had betrayed Thebes. When Antigone secretly buried her brother against the edict of her uncle, she was walled up alive in a tomb.
