Product description

Sophocles' Antigone is probably the most widely read and performed of all Greek tragedies, and its themes and conflicts resonate powerfully into the modern era. In this new edition, Mark Griffith combines sophisticated literary and cultural interpretation with close attention to language, metre, and issues of performance, and thus makes the play more fully available to readers of Greek than ever before. The introduction requires no knowledge of Greek and will interest all students of drama and literature.

Review quote

'Griffith ... it would be fairer to describe him as thorough, undogmatic, and open-minded. He is in most respects the ideal commentator, and this book will be of permanent value to scholars and students at all levels.' Hermathena
