Antigone

Antigone

Jean Anouilh's tragedy inspired by Greek Mythology and the play of the same name by Sophocles was first performed in Paris during the Nazi occupation. The comparison is inevitable between the French occupation and the play, with the character of Antigone representing the French resistance and her uncle Creon the collarborators to the German occupiers.

Antigone Oedipus The King Electra

Antigone Oedipus The King Electra

Love and loyalty, hatred and revenge, fear, deprivation, and political ambition: these are the motives which thrust the characters portrayed in these three Sophoclean masterpieces on to their collision course with catastrophe. Recognized in his own day as perhaps the greatest of the Greek tragedians, Sophocles's reputation has remained undimmed for two and a half thousand years. His greatest innovation in the tragic medium was his development of a central tragic figure, faced with a test of will and character, risking obloquy and death rather than compromise his or her principles: it is striking that Antigone and Electra both have a woman as their intransigent `hero'. Antigone dies rather than neglect her duty to her family, Oedipus's determination to save his city results in the horrific discovery that he has committed both incest and parricide, and Electra's unremitting anger at her mother and her lover keeps her in servitude and despair. These vivid translations combine elegance and modernity, and are equally suitable for reading or theatrical performance.

Antigone

Antigone

"Ô malheureuse enfant d'un père malheureux !" Bravant l'interdit du roi de Thèbes, Antigone, fille d'OEdipe, choisit d'enterrer son frère rebelle, s'exposant ainsi à la peine de mort. Il n'y a pour elle aucune alternative : elle ne fait qu'accomplir son devoir et prouve ainsi sa loyauté envers son parent et les dieux. Mais le roi Créon, son propre oncle, n'a lui pas l'intention de bafouer la loi des hommes, et condamne de fait sa nièce... La collection "La Sagesse des mythes" accueille ce texte fondateur de la philosophie qui illustre, selon le mot de Hegel, le conflit inéluctable et tragique de deux personnages "unilatéraux", c'est-à-dire légitimes dans leurs vues mais incapables de comprendre, ou en tout cas d'accepter, le point de vue de l'autre.

Sophocles Antigone

Sophocles Antigone

Sophocles' Antigone comes alive in this new translation that will be useful for academic study and stage production. Diane Rayor's accurate yet accessible translation reflects the play's inherent theatricality. She provides an analytical introduction and comprehensive notes, and the edition includes an essay by director Karen Libman. Antigone begins after Oedipus and Jocasta's sons have killed each other in battle over the kingship. The new king, Kreon, decrees that the brother who attacked with a foreign army remain unburied and promises death to anyone who defies him. The play centers on Antigone's refusal to obey Kreon's law and Kreon's refusal to allow her brother's burial. Each acts on principle colored by gender, personality and family history. Antigone poses a conflict between passionate characters whose extreme stances leave no room for compromise. The highly charged struggle between the individual and the state has powerful implications for ethical and political situations today.

Antigone

Antigone

The classic Greek tragedy about a woman who valiantly defies a tyrant to honor her brother and please the gods. When Polynices—a military leaders in Thebes’s civil war—dies on the battlefield, Thebes’s ruler, Creon, decrees that Polynices’s body will lie unburied and left as prey for the vultures. But Antigone, the late warrior’s sister, answers to a higher authority than the state, and breaks the law to follow her conscience and bury her brother with the proper rites. Antigone’s act of civil disobedience urges great upheaval in this timeless play that explores the conflicts that can arise between worldly and divine law, and the questions raised by the idea of individual freedom.

''I would call the register 'restrained colloquial'. The language ranges between the straightforward and the genuinely poetic, its dominant characteristic being freshness. This is not the usual dull translationese, which reads as if the original were not in a language people once spoke and wrote and created art with... One of the most effective styles I have seen in a translation.'' -- Reader's report. Paul Woodruff is Professor of Philosophy, University of Texas at Austin.

Recapturing Sophocles Antigone

Recapturing Sophocles Antigone

In this book, Wm. Blake Tyrrell and Larry J. Bennett examine Sophocles' Antigone in the context of its setting in fifth-century Athens. The authors attempt to create an interpretive environment that is true to the issues and interests of fifth-century Athenians, as opposed to those of modern scholars and philosophers. As they contextualize the play in the dynamics of ancient Athens, the authors discuss the text of the Antigone in light of recent developments in the study of Greek antiquity and tragedy, and they turn to modern Greek rituals of lamentation for suggestive analogies. The result is a compelling book which opens new insights to the text, challenges the validity of old problems, and eases difficulties in its interpretation.
