Antigone est la tragédie grecque la plus célèbre, la plus achevée, et c'est la pièce qui représente le tragique de la condition humaine de la façon la plus saisissante. Du siècle de Périclès à celui de Néron, de Robert Garnier (1580) à Jean Anouilh (1944) et à Bertolt Brecht (1948), Antigone est restée vivante, actuelle, à travers les reprises et les adaptations. Cette édition commentée de la pièce originale tente de faire comprendre un succès si extraordinaire et de l'élargir au public contemporain. L'introduction analyse la nature de la tragédie grecque classique et situe la pièce de Sophocle dans cet ensemble de chefs-d'œuvre fondateurs. Le texte, dans la traduction du grand helléniste Paul Mazon, reçoit une présentation et une annotation nouvelles destinées à faire sentir la construction et les harmoniques de l'œuvre. Le commentaire est ensuite consacré à l'étude d'Antigone et de sa réception dans la littérature et la pensée occidentales.

Love and loyalty, hatred and revenge, fear, deprivation, and political ambition: these are the motives which thrust the characters portrayed in these three Sophoclean masterpieces on to their collision course with catastrophe. Recognized in his own day as perhaps the greatest of the Greek tragedians, Sophocles's reputation has remained undimmed for two and a half thousand years. His greatest innovation in the tragic medium was his development of a central tragic figure, faced with a test of will and character, risking obloquy and death rather than compromise his or her principles: it is striking that Antigone and Electra both have a woman as their intransigent `hero'. Antigone dies rather than neglect her duty to her family, Oedipus's determination to save his city results in the horrific discovery that he has committed both incest and parricide, and Electra's unremitting anger at her mother and her lover keeps her in servitude and despair. These vivid translations combine elegance and modernity, and are equally suitable for reading or theatrical performance.

"Antigone," the first Theban play written by Sophocles yet chronologically last in the cycle, is a masterpiece of classical antiquity which examines the conflict between public duty and personal loyalty. Following the banishment of Oedipus, his two sons Eteocles and Polyneices have died leading opposite sides in Thebes's civil war, fighting each other for the throne. Queen Jocasta's brother Creon, now the ruler of Thebes, declares that Eteocles will be honored but Polyneices is to be publically shamed by refusing him burial rites. Creon declares that anyone attempting to do so will be put to death. In ancient Greece the refusal of burial rites was one of the most disrespectful acts that could have been shown to a person and their family. Antigone finds herself compelled by familial duty and disregards Creon's edict by scattering dirt across Polyneices's corpse. Creon, whose son Haemon is engaged to Antigone, finds himself torn between a personal loyalty to his family and a civic duty to punish Antigone for this crime. One of the greatest dramas from classical antiquity, "Antigone," along with its Theban counterparts, "Oedipus the King," and "Oedipus at Colonus," established Sophocles as one of the most renowned dramatists of his era. This edition follows the translation of E. H. Plumptre, includes an introduction by J. Churton Collins, and is printed on premium acid-free paper.
