Antigonick by Anne Carson

A contemporary translation of the classic Greek drama that asks, “How do we care for the dead and how we do grieve amidst crisis?” Antigonick is translated and strangely reimagined by the inimitable Classics scholar and award-winning poet, Anne Carson.

how is a Greek chorus like a lawyer

they’re both in the business of searching for a precedent

finding an analogy

locating a prior example

so as to be able to say

this terrible thing we’re witnessing now is

not unique you know it happened
