Antigone

Antigone by Sophocles, Paul Woodruff (Translator)

This month, Lisa is joined by Carla Della Gatta and Richard Green to discuss the timeless play by Sophocles: Antigone.

The play has clear connections to political struggles we face thousands of years later. The struggle between law and norm, the struggle to define what the state can control, and more. Listen as our three scholars discuss the necessity of reading Antigone today.

What we’re reading:

Carla: Antony and Cleopatra, by William Shakespeare
Richard: The Shakespeare Requirement by Julie Schumacher
