Antigonick is a comic-book presentation of Sophokles' Antigone in a new translation by Anne Carson, with text blocks hand-inked on the page by Carson and her collaborator Robert Currie. On separate translucent vellum pages, the artist Bianca Stone has created stunning drawings to overlay the text. Anne Carson has published translations of the ancient Greek poets Sappho, Simonides, Aiskhylos, Sophokles and Euripides. Antigonick is her first attempt at making translation into a combined visual and textual experience. Sophokles' luminous and disturbing tragedy is here given an entirely fresh language and presentation: it will provoke poetry readers, classical scholars, theatre people and comic-book aficionados.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'She is one of the few writers writing in English that I would read anything she wrote' - Susan Sontag 'Carson's singular gift for resuscitating the ancient theme of desire is complicated by a postmodern habit of pastiche and fragmentation' - Daphne Merkin, The New Yorker 'Reading Anne Carson is to experience a euphonious, mystical sort of perplexity' - Richard Bernstein, New York Times
