DA COSTA FELIPE FARAGE, Bruno  and  VILLANI ABRANTES, Vinícius. Meeting “Jus-Literary” in the Greek Tragedy: Medea, Antigone and Legal Hermeneutics. Rev. Fac. Der. [online]. 2019, n.46, pp.269-300.  Epub June 08, 2019. ISSN 0797-8316.

The present work aims to analyze the approximation between Law and Literature. In order to do so, a bibliographical review on the development of the subject in an American and European context is made. This interdisciplinary is then brought into the context of the Greek Tragedy. In Euripides's Medea, the characterization of the character is questioned as an “infanticide”, in addition to a brief comparison between the Criminal Codes of other Latin American countries, and in Sophocles Antigone presents the three faces of justice and the dichotomy between Natural Right and Positive Right. It is concluded that, in a way, the intensification of the studies in the area causes the jurist to reach wide and different views of the world, all stimulated by the imagination

Keywords : Law and Literature, Art; Tragedy, Medea; Antigone, Legal Hermeneutics.
