Echoing through Western culture for more than two millenia, Sophocles' Antigone has been a touchstone of thinking about human conflict, and the degree to which men and women are the creators of their own destinies.

Recensioner i media

"I highly recommend [Antigone]. Translators Reginald Gibbons and Charles Segal have done a good job in steering a reasonable course between a literal prose rendition and a poetic paraphrase. There is a very good detailed introduction to the play, an essay on the problems of translating it, a glossary of proper nouns, and three appendices about the date, the history of the myth, and how the play was transmitted. As a director, most valuable are the extensive
notes that are found in the back of the book [and] stage blockings added to the texts by the editors."Frank Behrens, Brattleboro Reformer

"These two new additions to Oxford's 'Greek Tragedy in New Translations' series only add to the luster of the previous releases. Each is firmly packed with insightful introductions, comprehensive and numbered notes, glossaries, and up-to-date bibliographies (the plays' texts take up about half of each volume). The collaboration of poet and scholar in each volume produces a language that is easy to read and easy to speak (compare, for instance, the Watchman's first
lines in Shapiro and Burian's Agamemnon with those in Lattimore's 1947 translation). Each volume's introduction presents the play's action and themes with some detail. The translators' notes describe the linguistic twists and turns involved in rendering the text into a modern poetic language. Both
volumes are enthusiastically recommended for academic libraries, theatre groups, and theatre departments."Library Journal [starred review of Oresteia and Antigone]

"Sophocles' text is inexhaustibly actual. It is also, at many points, challenging and remote from us. The Gibbons-Segal translation, with its rich annotations, conveys both the difficulties and the formidable immediacy. The choral odes, so vital to Sophocles' purpose, have never been rendered with finer energy and insight. Across more than two thousand years, a great dark music sounds for us."George Steiner, Churchill College, Cambridge
