Event description

Description

ANTIGONICK, by Anne Carson, is a translation of Sophocles' Antigone. The original text tells the story of Antigone challenging the injustice of men to obey the laws of the gods and follow her heart, defying the royal edict not to bury the body of her brother, Polynices. Exploring the struggle between the individual and the state, this elegant tragedy about tyrannical power and civil disobedience is considered to be Sophocles’ masterpiece and has become synonymous with political protest.

2018 Inga Maren Otto Fellow Anne Carson is a poet, essayist, professor of Classics, and translator. Carson has gained both critical accolades and a wide readership over the course of her “unclassifiable” publishing career. In addition to her many highly-regarded translations of classical writers such as Sappho and Euripides, and her triptych rendering of An Oresteia(2009), she has published poems, essays, libretti, prose criticism, and verse novels that often cross genres. Known for her supreme erudition, her poetry can also be heart-breaking and she regularly writes on love, desire, sexual longing and despair.
