Anne Carson has published translations of the ancient Greek poets Sappho, Simonides, Aiskhylos, Sophokles and Euripides. Antigonick is the first time she's making translation into a combined visual and textual experience. Sophokles’ luminous and disturbing tragedy is here given an entirely fresh language and presentation, making the fundamentally human issues of death and honor, family and morality as relevant as ever.
The text itself is hand-lettered on the page by Anne Carson, and this one-of-a-kind edition features stunning drawings by Bianca Stone printed on translucent vellum pages that overlay the text.
