“Why does tragedy exist? Because you are full of rage. Why are you full of rage? Because you are full of grief.” 
—Anne Carson, Tragedy: A Curious Art Form

Anne Carson’s stunning translation of Sophokles’ Antigone unearths the rapid, violent and intimate decay of a civilized world. 

When her dead brother is decreed a traitor, Antigone refuses to allow his body to be left unburied beyond the city walls. Defying the edict of her ruling uncle, Antigone forges ahead with a funeral alone, placing personal allegiance before politics, a tenacious act that will trigger a cycle of destruction.
