Abstract: The Greek myth, due to its versatility and universality, has historically served as a vehicle to metaphorize times of conflict. In this sense, Antigone was used on a recurring basis during the interwar era in Europe and during the civil war in Spain to speak about especially sensitive issues that they otherwise would not have been able to address. In the case of Spain, various authors, including Salvador Espriu and José María Pemán, used the tragedy of Sophocles to narrate the events that occurred during the Spanish Civil War and postwar period. Espriu and Pemán, despite dealing with the same historical period, took advantage of the versatility of the Greek myth and adapted the plot of Antigone, highlighting one aspect or another, to express their point of view on the conflict, as well as to express their opinion on other philosophical questions. Two versions that configure an example of the enormous adaptability and versatility of Greek mythology.
