Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Presents new ways of thinking about the human and the humanities through a rethinking of Antigone.

Why revive Antigone—again? And why now? William Robert responds to these questions through an inventive reading of Sophocles’s Antigone, reimagining Antigone in unprecedented ways. These new possibilities, of new Antigones, offer fresh ideas on what it means to be human in relation to others. Recast in novel roles, Antigone is brought into contemporary conversations taking place in the humanities concerning animals, biopolitics, ethics, philosophies, religions, and sexualities. Robert also brings her into conversation with Luce Irigaray in ways that illuminate Antigone and Irigaray alike, opening up new avenues for understanding them both and their potential for further contributions to the humanities.

William Robert is Assistant Professor of Religion at Syracuse University and the author of Trials: Of Antigone and Jesus.
