This is a superb translation and adaptation of Sophocles' great play, Antigone. Ms. Rayor has done a superb job of presenting the drama and pathos of the story in a structure that is lyrical, dynamic, yet remains powerfully emotional. Of the seven different translations and adaptations of Antigone that I have on my bookshelf, Ms. Rayor's adaptation rivals that of Seamus Heaney's, The Burial at Thebes, and they are now my two favorite renditions of Antigone. I highly recommend acquiring and reading this translation, it is quite superb.
