Description de l’éditeur
Sophocles was one of the three ancient Greek tragedians whose plays have survived. Sophocles wrote over 100 plays but only 7 have survived including the famous Oedipus trilogy. This edition of Ajax includes a table of contents.
Tipton takes the colloquial directness of Robert Fagles and the blunt eroticism of Anne Carson to the breaking point in this experimental translation of one the stranger and more unyielding works by one of Western civilization's founding dramatists. Tipton's opening dialogue between Athena and Odysseus astonishes, and his treatment of the chorus ventures into the territory of the Ontological-Hysteric Theatre: "where will it end/ the count of years wandering/ the toll the statistics of missiles/ in flight that fall/ back to the ground/ where a crater accuses." Flood Editions are published by Chicago poet Devin Johnston and poet Michael O'Leary.
