Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A muscular version of Sophocles' timeless masterpiece, offering a profound reflection on the nature of power, democracy and human rights.

The war has ended, but with peace comes conflict. Antigone’s brother Polyneices lies on the battlefield where he fell, his burial outlawed by Creon, the new king of Thebes. Should Antigone obey Creon, or must she follow her conscience and lay her beloved brother to rest?

Synopsis:

Antigone, defying her uncle Creon's decree that her brother should remain unburied, challenges the morality of man's law overruling the laws of the gods. The clash between her and Creon, with its tragic consequences, has inspired continual reinterpretation. This translation by Don Taylor was made for a 1986 BBC TV production of the Theban Plays, which he directed. A Methuen Student Edition.

Synopsis:

The ancient story by Sophocles' retold in a modern way by leading Irish playwright, Owen McCafferty.
