Description

'A beautifully bound, impressive collection with language as evocative as its illustrations.' Kirkus Reviews The Antigone Poems, featuring poetry by Marie Slaight and drawings by Terrence Tasker, was created in the 1970's, while the artists were living between Montreal and Toronto. A powerful retelling of the ancient Greek tale of defiance and justice, the book is starkly illustrated, and its poetry captures the anguish and despair of the original tale in an unembellished modernized rendition. The Antigone Poems will be a print-only book, with a specialty paper (Spicer's Swiss White from the Australian-made Stevens Collection), Section-sewn binding, and jacket flaps.show more

Passionate, brutal, and infused with extraordinary lyricism, The Antigone Poems provides a special expedition into the depths of the ancient Sophocles tragedy.show more
