Antigone (Penguin Classics)
138 pp. Translated by Robert Fagles. "Sophocles (495 BC - 406 BC) was one of the three great ancient Greek tragedians. Other Tragedians were Aeschylus and Euripides. According to the Suda he wrote 123 plays; in the dramatic competitions of the Festival of Dionysus (where each submission by one playwright consisted of four plays; three tragedies and a satyr play), he won more first prizes (around 20) than any other playwright, and placed second in all others he participated in (Lloyd-Jones 1994: 8). Each contest traditionally had three entrants. His first victory was in 468, although scholars are no longer certain that this was the first time that he competed (Scullion 2002). Only seven of his tragedies have survived complete in the medieval manuscript tradition. The most famous are the three tragedies concerning Oedipus and Antigone: these are often known as the Theban plays or The Oedipus Cycle, although they do not make up a single trilogy. Discoveries of papyri from the late nineteenth century onwards, especially at Oxyrhynchus, have greatly added to our knowledge of Sophocles' works. The most substantial fragment which has so far appeared contains around half of a satyr play, The Tracking Satyrs." -- Wikipedia CONTENTS: Acknowledgments; Translator's Preface; Greece and the Theater; Introduction to Antigone; Antigone; Notes on the TranslationKeywords: CONTINENTAL EUROPEAN DRAMA DRAMATIC WORKS SOPHOCLES ANTIGONE LITERATURE
