A beautifully illustrated new translation of Sophokles's Antigone
With text blocks hand-inked on the page by Anne Carson and her collaborator Robert Currie, Antigonick features translucent vellum pages with stunning drawings by Bianca Stone that overlay the text. Anne Carson has published translations of the ancient Greek poets Sappho, Simonides, Aiskhylos, Sophokles and Euripides. Antigonick is her first foray into making translation a combined visual and textual experience. Sophokles's luminous and disturbing tragedy is here given an entirely fresh language and presentation. It is thoroughly delightful and visually stunning.
Anne Carson was born in Canada and teaches at New York University. She is the author of Nox; Glass, Irony and God; Autobiography of Red; The Beauty of the Husband; Decreation; Economy of the Unlost; Eros the Bittersweet; Grief Lessons; If Not, Winter; Men in the Off Hours; and Plainwater.
Bianca Stone, the author of Someone Else's Wedding Vows, received her MFA from NYU in 2009 and is the editor of Monk Books.
