The comic-book translation is zingy and modern...Carson has perfectly captured Antigone's moral fervour and her almost erotic desire for death. The snappiness of her translation hits a different note from Sophocles, but this edition is a treat none the less. --Natalie Haynes, Observer
Unlike versions of Antigone that try to capture the drama's grandeur (such as Robert Fagles's translation for Penguin) or to make it relevant (including Don Taylor's version, currently at the National Theatre), Carson's aims to show the difficulty of translation, the truly unbearable nature of tragedy. --Emily Stokes, Guardian
Antigonick questions what it means to translate Greek drama...For Carson, her uncompromising solutions are little kidnaps in the dark, a trail of softly glowing lamps that mark the way through the centuries and out of the shadows.' - Josephine Balmer, Times
' Antigonick by Anne Carson; everything this classicist-poet writes is worth repeated close reading. This is also a beautiful book.' --Candia McWilliam, Sunday Herald, Books of the Year 2013
