Translation of Antigone

Horzempa, Rachel

This translation of Jean Anouilh’s Antigone provides a more complete transmission of the author’s intended purpose to present the play on stage. By incorporating the historical context of World War II during which it was written, I have added more stage directions, including costumes and scenery, in order to allow the readers to easily imagine what would take place on stage if they were watching it in a theater. I have not altered Anouilh’s ideas nor have I reinterpreted his meaning. The purpose of this translation is to enhance the readers’ experience with the play so that they may analyze Anouilh’s intended message themselves.
