SARAVIA, María Inés. The transgression of the boundaries in Sophocles' plays. Circe clás. mod. [online]. 2008, n.12, pp. 167-182. ISSN 1851-1724.
In the present work we propose the analysis of the most significant spaces that frame the characters performance. At the decisive request, Sophoclean heroes debate about their own limits, either ontological, moral or anthropological, which surely imply a jump, a step, or a crossroad. The space images show theatricality because of the impact they cause in the audience. They connote a manner of being or living, in a way that define the hero personality. We synthetically revise all the preserved plays of the tragic author and express the conclusions.
