anon (n.), conflict, especially between characters in a drama.
Agon comes from the Greek word agōn, which is translated with a number of meanings, among them “contest,” “competition at games,” and “gathering.” In ancient Greece, agons (also spelled “agones”) were contests held during public festivals. The contests-among them the ancient Olympics that our modern Olympics is modeled on-involved everything from athletics to chariot and horse racing to music and literature. “Agon” in the realm of literature refers to the dramatic conflict between the main characters in a Greek play, or more broadly, between the chief characters in any literary work. The word is also occasionally used to refer to conflict generally.Merriam-Webster. (n.d.). Agon. In Merriam-Webster.com dictionary.
