Re-read this for a "creative non-fiction" essay that I'm working on: Sophocles is good, and this is something I undoubtedly failed to realize while reading it in high school. Kreon is a dick, and a sort of realistic sense of obnoxiousness shines through in this translation (as opposed to the performative nature of his speech that is generally found), but everything else I like lots more in this translation, so I am willing to overlook that.
