Journal of the Hillside Hospital. XIII, 1964: Antigone—A Preoedipal Old Maid. Philip Weissman. Pp. 32-41.

The author follows those formulations of Freud on female sexuality concerning intense father attachments as reflections and extensions of a prior intense preoedipal mother attachment. Antigone's father nursing and tending of Oedipus shows this along with the reversal of the regressive oral wish. Her loyalty to both dead brothers, Eteocles who defended Thebes and Polynices who attacked the city, shows an irrational devotion to family, here, a reflection of preoedipal fixation. Similarly, her defiance of Creon and her renunciation of her betrothal to Haemon, Creon's son, stem from the same sources.
