Before discussing how this tragedy by Sophocles could be utilized in my final essay, it is imperative to consider the play's connection to Kamila Shamsie's Home Fire. Shamsie's searing and suspenseful novel, which explores how secrets and family loyalty can both bind lives together and threaten to spin them out control, is a modern reimagination of Antigone, where Isma is a stand-in for Ismene, Eamonn for Haemon, Aneeka for Antigone — all figures from the tragic Greek myth. While Home Fire explores the themes of sacrifice, loyalty, and identity, Antigone---although an ancient story---continues to have meaning for us because of its focus on several themes: the conflict of ideas and character, the struggle between individual conscience and the authority of the state, the opposition of male and female natures, and the nature of human suffering. Both the fictitious novel and play put an emphasis on the concept of dual loyalty, which arises when an individual or group of individuals (specifically citizens or permanent residents of a place) hold conflicting political allegiances to another state or entity (ultimately debilitating and challenging their loyalty to the state). From my scholarly article, I learned that dual loyalty is attributed to homogenous patriotism and national identity, where migrant communities, ethnic minorities, or diasporic populations are faced with having to prove their loyalty to the state. While Home Fire is a reimagined form of Antigone, there are some dissimilarities among the characters. For example, Isma (one of the protagonists of Home Fire) is considered to be a minority in the British state because she is a Muslim woman. Antigone, on the other hand is not necessarily considered to be a minority in the Greek tragedy, considering that she belongs to a royal family. Despite their varying characteristics, it is interesting to visualize how both characters are criticized for being dual loyalists, even though one characters is obviously a minority in her state while the other necessarily isn't. This causes me to question whether the argument proposed in my articles is valid or not. In my paper, it will interesting to explore whether or not it is mistaken to think that only minorities are susceptible to dual loyalty. Is everyone susceptible to a crisis of conscience?
