The Antigone Poems

By Marie Slaight

Poetry | Paperback


The Antigone Poems, featuring poetry by Marie Slaight and drawings by Terrence Tasker, was created in the 1970's, while the artists were living between Montreal and Toronto. A powerful retelling of the ancient Greek tale of defiance and justice, the book is starkly illustrated, and its poetry captures the anguish and despair of the original tale in an unembellished modernized rendition. Passionate, brutal, and infused with extraordinary lyricism, The Antigone Poems provides a special expedition into the depths of the ancient Sophocles tragedy.



Marie Slaight (1954-) has worked in Montreal, New Orleans and Buenos Aires as a writer, producer, and performer for film, theatre and music. She is now the director of Sydney-based Altaire Productions and Publications, which has been involved in independent New Orleans music such films as the award-winning documentary Bury the Hatchet. Her poetry has appeared in American Writing, Poetry Salzburg, New Orleans Review, Pittsburg Quarterly, Abiko Quarterly and elsewhere.
