i was in a production of antigone two years ago and it was kind of an earth-shattering experience that forged within me a deep bond with the play. She later offers an overview of Antigone's childhood – "we got her the bike we got her a therapist". In contrast to Grief Lessons and Carson’s Oresteia translation, this one is far less literal, pulling in contemporary language and references to contemporary authors who have commented on Antigone. has an ineluctably comic effect for those who remember Housman's parody of Aeschylus ("O suitably-attired-in-leather-boots head of a traveler .
