9781438452944: The Returns of Antigone: Interdisciplinary Essays (SUNY series in Gender Theory)

Examines Antigone’s influence on contemporary European, Latin American, and African political activism, arts, and literature.

Despite a venerable tradition of thinkers having declared the death of tragedy, Antigone lives on. Disguised in myriad national costumes, invited to a multiplicity of international venues, inspiring any number of political protests, Antigone transmits her energy through the ages and across the continents in an astoundingly diverse set of contexts. She continues to haunt dramatists, artists, performers, and political activists all over the world. This cutting-edge, interdisciplinary collection explores how and why, with essays ranging from philosophical, literary, and political investigations to queer theory, race theory, and artistic appropriations of the play. It also establishes an international scope for its considerations by including assessments of Latin American and African appropriations of the play alongside European receptions of the play.
Tina Chanter is Head of the School of Humanities at Kingston University in the United Kingdom. Her many books include Whose Antigone? The Tragic Marginalization of Slavery, also published by SUNY Press.

Review:

The volume serves well as a mirror of the diversity of approaches to the play [it] shines a lot of light on the layers and breadth of interest in Antigone, and it is highly recommended reading in that sense [it] contributes clearly to feminist scholarship by showing just how many interesting interpretations of Antigone have grown out of the politics of gender and sexuality.

"In its considerable breadth, The Returns of Antigone as a whole represents a significant contribution to the interdisciplinary study of ancient Greek tragedy and its afterlives and will no doubt prove useful for both scholarship and pedagogy ... [it] points to a promising future of further nuanced and varied engagements with Antigone in all of her manifestations." -- philoSOPHIA
