ANTIGONICK ANNE CARSON PDF

Her poetry is expressionistic you see this in Antigonick , shot through with a spiritual turbulence and an almost violent sensitivity to experience, and the barbed edges of her lines can send shocks through you. Instead, it demands prior knowledge of Antigone in order to really plumb the depths of the work. The problem is that the work comes alive in spectacular ways only when you put it next to a more traditional translation. Antigonick strives to be a multi-dimensional artistic work, not a study of or a gloss on Antigone. Usually it provides a generous way in. Instead they add another layer of mystification, and the book hobbles as a result.

Education[ edit ] In high school, a Latin instructor introduced Carson to the world and language of Ancient Greece and tutored her privately. Carson, disconcerted by curricular constraints particularly by a required course on Milton , retired to the world of graphic arts for a short time. She frequently references, modernizes, and translates Ancient Greek literature.

She has published twenty books as of , most of which blend the forms of poetry, essay, prose, criticism, translation, dramatic dialogue, fiction, and non-fiction.

In Greek myth, a monster named Geryon lived on a red island and tended a herd of coveted red cattle; slaying the monster and stealing the cattle was the tenth of the twelve labors of Herakles […].

The tale was set down by Hesiod and others almost 3, years ago […]. Still, for a moment, she gets it all to hang together up there, the joy made keener by the coming fall. Sad but great: In the end it seemed to me that Carson had found the proper name for everything -- her character, this book, this life.

The production was directed by Ivo van Hove and starred Juliette Binoche. Named one of the best nonfiction books of all time by the Modern Library , the book traces the concept of "eros" in ancient Greece through its representations in poetry of the time. Carson considers seriously how triangular and mimetic desires have been represented in the poetry of Sappho , as well as the relationship of eros to solitude.

Antigonick, by Anne Carson

Year In her updated rendition of the play she calls the Antigonick by Sophokles, Anne Carson fashions a protagonist with the headspace of a suicide bomber. Her Antigone is in love with the idea of martyrdom, and the fact that she is so public about it undermines her noble motives. Born from the incest of Oedipus, she has a cursed life, so this is a respectable way out for her. The Parthenon was nearing completion in that year and the large audience watching would look up to see the massive building in the background. At the time, King Kreon in the play could easily be associated with Pericles, the Athenian statesman who was ultimately responsible for the construction of the Parthenon and the ethically problematic formation of the Athenian empire.

Antigonick

Being scholarly and methodical, Nox suggests, has its limits: "Prowling the meanings of a word, prowling the history of a person, no use expecting a flood of light," she writes. The title is disconcerting, too. The illustrations by the artist Bianca Stone are a surreal assortment of icy landscapes, domestic interiors, gothic houses, unravelling spools of thread, precarious staircases and drowning horses, which are printed on transparent vellum that overlay the text, and which relate only occasionally to what is happening in the play. She is a heroine who has been interpreted by critics in myriad ways: for Hegel, she represents the ethical value of the family against the state; for George Eliot, the strength of intellect against society; for Anouilh, during the French resistance, the rejection of authority. Woolf viewed her as a proto-feminist; others have called her a terrorist. Rather than offering a separate commentary to explain her text, Carson gives her characters their own.

ANTIGONICK, translated by Anne Carson

There are also long reviews online, for example at piercepenniless. She makes that claim in a wonderfully taciturn, reluctant interview at suicidegirls. There are, as George Steiner points out, some wonderful passages in the translation--more than enough to help readers overlook the quirks that apparently enabled them. What concerns me, as usual, are the illustrations.
