Antigone has become a major figure in current cultural discourse thanks to the late twentieth-century interpretations by such controversial theorists as Lacan, Derrida, Irigaray, Zizek, and Judith Butler. This collection of articles by distinguished scholars from a variety of intellectual disciplines (including philosophy, psychoanalysis, feminism, theatre, and the classics) provides a postmodern perspective on the ethical and political issues raised by this ancient text and recent theatrical productions. The contributors provide an array of perspectives on a female figure who questions the role of the patriarchal state.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The book is comprehensive in its investigations and, as such, will inevitably appeal to scholars from many different disciplines and backgrounds. * Brenda Donohue, Trinity College Dublin, Modern Drama Reviews *
the volume presents an excellent example of an interdisciplinary discourse that fuses theoretical and practical concerns, offering useful insights to both scholars and theatre practitioners. * Julia Listengarten, Theatre Journal *
An important contribution to the fields of Classics, drama, and philosophy, this book is very well worth reading, demonstrating as it does the rich heritage and impact of the play in postmodern philosophy and thought. * Hermathena No 191 *
a series of thought-provoking essays * Eleftheria Ioannidou, Theatre Research International *
Interrogating Antigone has the immense merit of probing on a number of different levels the reasons why Antigone the character and Antigone the play continue to haunt us down the ages. * T.N.F. Murtagh, New Theatre Quarterly *
offers a rich economy of semiotic exchanges in the multiple efforts of critics to produce new meanings through their alternative engagements with the classical text and its inexhaustible resources. Readers will find in the book a rich variety of Antigones with which to enter into some kind of meaningful exchange. * Andres Fabian Henao Castro, The Classical Review *
