The body of Polynices, Antigone's brother, has been ordered to remain unburied by Creon, the new king of Thebes. Antigone defies the law, sealing her fate. Originally produced in Paris during the Nazi occupation, Anouilh's Antigone was seen by the French as theatre resistance and by Germans as an affirmation of authority.

    " This tiny book is one of my all times favorite. The character of Antigone is so 100%. I love it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roger | 2/6/2014

    " Existentialist re-imagining of the Greek play Antigone. Well written, not really for me but may work for others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 rebecca | 1/24/2014

    " One of my favorite takes on the story. A little dramatic, but he WAS writing to shame his country into standing up to the Nazis, so I guess it was warranted. May I also recommend it in French? Because it's really good in French. Aren't I a smartypants. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karölchen | 1/22/2014

    " Read this right after Sophokles' Antigone. Definitely a good idea, as the whole story is told on roughly the first page anyway. Adds nice new dimensions to the story. The only thing I should have done is look up "soudain" at some point, excessive use! It's not a children's book, that's why it's just a 4,5 ;) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dasha Smirnova | 1/18/2014

    " This version made me love the story of Antigone! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 1/12/2014

    " This story is fascinating anyway, and this version of it by Jean Anouilh is great. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jordi | 12/27/2013

    " This is a translated (from French) adaptation from the 1940s of the original Sophocles play.... weird that no one explained that in 10th grade... I need to reread this and I need to read the original. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzie | 12/21/2013

    " It was ok....I had to read it for school. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Weigel | 12/10/2013

    " I really enjoyed this retelling of Sophocles' "Antigone". Anouilh uses some very poetic language, and the characterization makes you wonder who the victim really is: Creon or Antigone? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 12/8/2013

    " A slightly more modernized version of "Antigone," this play was first performed in Paris in 1944, when the Nazis were occupying France. There are a few things missing, but, for the most part, the plot is the same, and I thought this version was pretty enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 علی | 12/5/2013

    " No doubt I love the tragedy of Antigone, specially the one by Sophocles,but Antigone by Jean Anouilh is as fantastic as one by Sophocles. It must be the story, the fight, insisting, and standing against the state which is flirting me much, ... no, I'm not a rebel ... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ingrid Lola | 11/11/2013

    " This adaptation of Sophocles' Antigone was written and performed in Occupied France during WWII. The story was meant to parallel French Resistance (Antigone) vs Government of Vichy France (Creon) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 5/4/2013

    " We read this in my fourth year of French, senior year of high school. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rylie Ficarro | 4/7/2013

    " I gave Antigone two stars because I dont like to read plays and this was set up as a play. I also didnt like it because it didnt catch my attention. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 8/10/2012

    " Read in high school. One of the first Greek tragedies we covered and really liked this one despite it's shocking (for high school) ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Britta | 2/25/2012

    " Everytime I read this book, I think of my friend Matt who died in highschool. He was in my English class and we were reading this when he died. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer W | 1/9/2012

    " Probably my favorite play of all time. While I love the French Resistance's use of this play during WWII, for me, it is about Antigone and her coming of age and figuring out what she wants to stand for. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 10/5/2011

    " Originally published in 1943, an adaptation of Sophocles written by a Frenchman during the Nazi occupation. Heavy with themes of duty, freedom, conformity, and authority. Marvelous! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lia | 5/26/2011

    " I read this play at least three or four times. It's one of the works that really convinced me that reading things in the original French was well worth learning the language. Anouilh is amazing with his capacity for wit alongside the darker places inside the human soul. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 F. | 5/14/2011

    " I didn't just read this, I played the part of the narrator in a play produced by my my high school. I remember we all wore black and white... Ms. Confrey loved this play. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 1/9/2011

    " My favorite in the Oedipus cycle. There is less focus on tragic flaws, and more on tragic relationships, which is so much more fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ryan | 12/27/2010

    " This was so beautiful I was stunned. My favorite french drama. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarangbe | 12/22/2010

    " I love it.... I took it yesterday and i finish it the same day... it's a really good book... and i really recommand you people to ead it... :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy | 11/9/2010

    " Liked "Oedipus" much better. Still a fine greek tragedy. The question: is Antigone or Creon the tragic hero? Hmmmmm... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 8/11/2010

    " On connait tous Antigone de Sophocle et on a tous entendu parlé de celle d'Anouilh. Que dire sur cette réécriture fantastique, pleine de sous-entendu qui nous font réfléchir ? Rien, à part que c'est un bon livre à lire. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fouzia | 8/4/2010

    " Elle reste La meilleur pièce de théâtre de Jean Anouilh.Je l'ai lu presque 5 fois et je pense même de la relire une autre fois ... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roger | 5/7/2010

    " Existentialist re-imagining of the Greek play Antigone. Well written, not really for me but may work for others. "
