READING: ‘Dochter van het moeras’ (The Marsh King’s Daughter) van Karen Dionne is een thriller die geassocieerd kan worden met de film ‘Nell’ en het boek ‘Kamer’ (Room) van Emma Donoghue. ‘Als je slechts één thriller per jaar leest, zorg dan dat het deze is. Sensationeel!’ -Clare Mackintosh Helena’s moeder is als tiener ontvoerd en in een afgelegen hut diep in het moerasgebied bij Michigan vastgehouden. Geen elektriciteit of stromend water, geen mensen in de buurt. Helena, die twee jaar later geboren werd, hield van het leven daar: jagen, vissen, één zijn met de natuur. Ondanks haar vaders temperament en vaak brute gedrag, hield ze van hem. Tot het moment dat ze ontdekte hoe wreed hij werkelijk was. Twintig jaar later heeft Helena een stabiel leven opgebouwd. Maar dan ontsnapt haar vader uit de gevangenis. Hij houdt zich waarschijnlijk schuil in het moerasgebied dat hij als geen ander kent. De politie zet een grote klopjacht in, maar Helena weet dat die geen schijn van kans maakt. Zij is de enige die haar vader kan vinden, want zij heeft de geheimen van het moerasgebied juist van hém geleerd. ‘Wat een geweldig boek. Prachtig van taal en setting en onwaarschijnlijk spannend!’- Karin Slaughter Karen Dionne woonde jarenlang met haar man en kind in de wildernis van Upper Peninsula, Michigan, waar zij zichzelf ‘de wetten van de wildernis’ leerden. Tegenwoordig woont en werkt ze in Detroit. De filmrechten voor Dochter van het moeras zijn reeds verkocht. ‘Dochter van het moeras is een indrukwekkend thrillerdebuut. Een aanrader!’- Lee Child

READING: The gods never move faster than when punishing men with the consequences of their own actions. Desperate to gain control over a city ravaged by civil war, Creon refuses to bury the body of Antigone's rebellious brother. Outraged, she defies his edict. Creon condemns the young woman, his niece, to be buried alive. The people daren't object but the prophet Teiresias warns that this tyranny will anger the gods: the rotting corpse is polluting the city. Creon hesitates and his fate is sealed. Sophocles' great tragic play dramatises the clash between the family and the city and, with high poetry and deep tragedy, presents an irreconcilable but equally-balanced conflict. Sophoclean heroine Antigone has become a cultural archetype, the symbol of personal integrity and an icon of political freedom, whilst her co-protagonist Creon can be interpreted as either a civic saviour or a ruthless tyrant. This edition of Don Taylor's translation presents one of the most accessible and performable versions of this ancient play and provides a blueprint for understanding and staging the play today. The volume also contains a Translator's Note and a preface by Polly Findlay, the director of the National Theatre's 2012 staging of the play.

READING: Antigone is Sophocles' masterpiece, a seminal influence on a wide range of theatrical, literary, and intellectual traditions. This volume sets the play in the contexts of its mythical background, its performance, its relation to contemporary culture and thought, and its rich reception history. But its main aim is to encourage first-hand engagement with the complexities of interpretation that make the play so enduringly thought-provoking and rewarding. Though Creon's actions prove disastrous and Antigone's are vindicated, the Antigone is no simple study in the excesses of tyranny or the virtues of heroic resistance, but a more nuanced exploration of conflicting views of right and wrong and of the conditions that constrain human beings' efforts to control their destinies and secure their happiness. The book's chapters consider the extent of the original audience's acquaintance with earlier versions of the legends of Antigone's family, the structure of the plot as it unfolds in theatrical performance, the presentation of the characters and the motivations that drive them, the major political, social, and ethical themes that the play raises, and the resonance of those themes in the ways that the play has been interpreted, adapted, performed, and appropriated in later periods.

READING: Jean Anouilh's tragedy inspired by Greek Mythology and the play of the same name by Sophocles was first performed in Paris during the Nazi occupation. The comparison is inevitable between the French occupation and the play, with the character of Antigone representing the French resistance and her uncle Creon the collarborators to the German occupiers.

READING: Oidipous is de tragedie van het noodlot. Het orakel van Delfi heeft de held voorspeld dat hij zijn vader zou vermoorden en met zijn moeder zou trouwen. Juist zijn pogingen de dans te ontspringen hebben ertoe geleid dat gebeurd is wat nu eenmaal gebeuren moest. Het toneelstuk toont hoe Oidipous ontdekt wie hij is en wat hij heeft gedaan. Antigone is eerder de tragedie van wat men persoonlijke vrijheid noemt. De heldin kiest ervoor haar religieuze normen boven de wet te stellen, ook al weet zij dat dit haar eigen ondergang betekent. Voor de Perpetua-reeks maakte Gerard Koolschijn een nieuwe vertaling van het stuk.

READING: In this book, Wm. Blake Tyrrell and Larry J. Bennett examine Sophocles' Antigone in the context of its setting in fifth-century Athens. The authors attempt to create an interpretive environment that is true to the issues and interests of fifth-century Athenians, as opposed to those of modern scholars and philosophers. As they contextualize the play in the dynamics of ancient Athens, the authors discuss the text of the Antigone in light of recent developments in the study of Greek antiquity and tragedy, and they turn to modern Greek rituals of lamentation for suggestive analogies. The result is a compelling book which opens new insights to the text, challenges the validity of old problems, and eases difficulties in its interpretation.

READING: What if psychoanalysis had chosen Antigone rather than Oedipus? This book traces the relation between ethics and desire in important philosophical texts that focus on femininity and use Antigone as their model. It shows that the notion of feminine desire is conditioned by a view of women as being prone to excesses and deficiencies in relation to ethical norms and rules. Sjöholm explains Mary Wollstonecraft's work, as well as readings of Antigone by G.W.F. Hegel, Martin Heidegger, Luce Irigaray, Jacques Lacan, and Judith Butler. This book introduces the concept of the "Antigone complex" in order to illuminate the obscure and multifaceted question of feminine desire, which has given rise to the fascination of generations of philosophers and other theoreticians, as well as readers and spectators. At the same time the book argues for a notion of desire that is intrinsically related to ethics. The ethical question posed by Antigone, and explored in the book, is: what determines those actions that one must do, as opposed to those that one ought to do?
