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. Antigonick is her first attempt at making translation into cadson combined visual and textual experience.

Carson is nothing less than brilliant–unfalteringly sharp indiction, audacious, and judicious in taking liberties. She is one of the few writers writing in English that I would read carsoh she wrote.

: Antigonick (): Anne Carson, Bianca Stone: Books

Carson does more than just update the language and quicken the pacing she rewrites the play, mines its subtleties, its absurdity and its strangely comic timing and manages to produce a unique text out of a story that goes back much further than the fifth century when Sophocles wrote his version.

Carson’s work is irrepressibly modern and provoking. Bianca Stone’s illustrations are immediate and visceral, and Robert Currie’s overall antignoick design has elegance and anhe.

A work of art. I had no idea what I was getting. I thought it was just a translation of Antigone, and it is that, annne this is a hand-crafted book, the text written out by the poet-translator, illustrated with beautiful drawings. There’s more to say about the translation itself; I’m not really qualified to comment, except to say that I found it intriguing and moving. But the book as a physical object is astounding, and I feel like I accidentally struck gold when I ordered it.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I’m really upset that the Kindle version does not have the pictures and the original print style of the actual book and that this wasn’t mentioned before purchase.

It’s ridiculous–those things are just as much a part of the book as the writing itself so it’s like I got an incomplete book. Got the Kindle version. Horrible formatting, half the dialogue tags missing, completely incomprehensible.


Returned it for refund immediately. One person found this helpful. Very disappointed this paperback version does NOT amne the illustrations as described. Not what I was expecting to receive. This is a stunning version of Antigone.

Anne Carson is an extraordinaryly creative poet and translator.
