Sophocles lives for us only in his works, as Shakespeare does; and very possibly it is for this very reason that both are the most faithful mirrors of all that was greatest and unique in their splendid epochs. Critics ancient and modern are agreed that the intermediate attitude of Sophocles--not only in his person, but in his art--attained that highest perfection, which lasts but a moment and is marred by the smallest change. To Sophocles belongs the Antigone of yesterday.
