The break-in happened in Denegate
Close at around 3.45am on Saturday, with raiders snapping the lock to a patio door, before searching for the car keys then driving off in the stolen grey, Audi A5, registration number RJ16 CXZ and a blue Q3, OE67 BWF, worth a combined PS60,000.
Comolli reads this surplus as a blockage to illusion: "The coded is more visible, the supposedly known more awkward, the belief more problematic: there is more to denegate
, a body and a knowledge too much" (19).
Antigone is already beyond this life at the play's start; Sygne enters this comparable realm at the sacrificial moment of consenting to marriage with the family enemy, and the statuses of both protagonists are defined at the level of what they must denegate
and what they must subsequently identify with, above and beyond their temporary situation in the space of between-two-deaths.
