Publisher's Summary

Prince Kreon, enforcing an arbitrary mandate, is enraged that Antigone would abide by a natural law of sisterly respect in contradiction of his will. As neither can be reconciled with the other's acts, the drama grows devoutly tenebrous. This translation is iambic, as is most of the text in Greek.

Unsure if you should buy

It was helpful but I found it hard to fallow since it was never said who was speaking when.

Performance/reading of Antigone

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A most disappointing rendition of this drama. Monotonous voice, which mostly confuses the listener as to who is actually speaking. I would not have bought this had I known it was of such poor quality.


How could the performance have been better?

Experienced, trained dramatic readers would have done this drama justice.


Any additional comments?

Look for another rendition.
