Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Woodruff's work with Peter Meineck makes this text one that is accessible to today's students and could be staged for modern audiences. Line notes printed at the bottom of the page bring a reader further quick assistance. . . . The choral odes as rendered here deserve special notice. After giving a succinct analysis of each in his introduction, Woodruff translates the lyrics into English that is both poetic and comprehensible. . . . Woodruff's rendering of the dialogue moves along easily; these are lines that any contemporary Antigone, Creon or Haemon might speak. Antigone's words on the gods' unwritten laws keep close to the Greek and yet would be authentic for a modern speaker. . . . Woodruff's introduction is a strong, clear, and clever blend of basic traditional information (to those who know Greek tragedy) and fresh insights. . . . Should our drama department ask for my advice as to a playable text, I would certainly suggest Woodruff's new version. --Karelisa Hartigan, The Classical Bulletin

Review:

"When a play has been translated as many times as the Antigone, a new version has to have some remarkable qualities in order to merit attention. Happily, Woodruff's Antigone has just that." James Robson, The Joint Association of Classical Teachers Review

Review:

?A lucid, well-paced translation." Joseph Russo, Haverford College

It is the continuation of Oedipus Rex, but it is more than that, because the story centers on his two daughters and their conflict for women's rights, between law and religion and family values. It also has to do with respect for elders, respect for the law and customs, murder, love, authority, war and funeral rites. A Greek tragedy, greater in meaning and trascendence than Oedipus Rex, by a well known playwright.
