The Antigone PoemsThe Antigone Poems

‘ ...This is ART you cannot buy or sell. It is the flaming center of the volcano that makes us create...’

Grace Cavalieri The Washington Independent Review of Books

‘...serious, intelligent, one of a kind, and gorgeous. It is a major find, a supplement to our interpretation of the Sophoclean play as much as is Anne Carson’s Antigonick and more unified... I cannot recommend this book highly enough.’

Kelly Cherry, Blue Fifth Review

'Rich in allegory and metaphor...a beautifully bound, impressive collection with language as evocative as its illustrations.'

Kirkus Reviews

‘...The poems are earthy as well, like Lacryma Christi, the wine made from grapes grown on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius. You can taste the ash, the death brought on from previous eruptions...’

The Rumpus

‘...All in all, an amazing book. I highly recommend it to all lovers of poetry and fans of Greek tragedy. Excuse me while I relax under the Greek sun, to read through this remarkable book for a fourth time.’
