Om författaren

Jean Anouilh was born on June 23, 1910, in France. Anouilh studied law as a teenager and worked briefly in advertising. He soon became aware of his strong attraction to the theatre and became one of France's foremost playwrights and screenwriters. Anouilh's works are noted for their theatrical visa mer conventions. His plays, many of which are bleak dramas, feature characters facing highly moral dilemmas. He uses such conventions as flashbacks, role reversals, and play-within-a-play to achieve dramatic effects. Anouilh received a New York Drama Critics Circle Award for his play Waltz of the Toreadors and a Tony award for Thieves Carnival. Other well-known works include Antigone, Eurydice and the film Pattes Blanches. Anouilh suffered a heart attack and died in 1987. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Kort biografi
Jean Anouilh est un écrivain et dramaturge français né le 13 juin 1910 à Bordeaux et mort le 3 octobre 1987 à Lausanne, en Suisse. Dès le lycée, Jean Anouilh se découvre une passion pour le théâtre mais c'est une représentation de Siegried de Jean Giraudoux, en 1928, qui le décide à écrire pour le théâtre, une activité qu’il poursuivra durant la guerre et l’occupation allemande (Antigone, en 1942, souleva d’ailleurs une violente polémique quant à la supposée dimension politique de l'oeuvre). À partir de 1961, il s’est davantage tourné vers la mise en scène et a contribué à faire connaitre Samuel Beckett et Eugène Ionesco. Il s'est également occupé de l'adaptation de pièces de théâtre étrangères, notamment plusieurs de Shakespeare.

Les pièces d’Anouilh oscillent entre comédie et drame, qu'il a lui-même classées en différentes catégories selon leurs thèmes et leur esprit : Pièces roses, Pièces noires, Pièces brillantes, Pièces grinçantes, Pièces costumées, Pièces baroques, Pièces secrètes et Pièces farceuses. Dans son oeuvre théâtrale et dans ses comédies, l’humour y est féroce et le cynisme omniprésent. L’œuvre d’Anouilh est avant tout empreinte d’un pessimisme profond.

Great cast but I think that I liked the 1964 film with Richard Burton & Peter O'Toole based on this play better.

Read this French text while listening to an English-language audiobook. (translated by Christopher Nixon).

Luckily for me I got the audiobook as when I turned to the print edition I had checked out from the library, it turned out to be in French!! My French isn't good enough to have read this alone but was good enough to attempt reading it with the help of an English translation in audio :) It was an interesting experience! The L.A. TheatreWorks audiobook doesn't include stage directions so I would pause momentarily while I read these.

One thing that I noticed is that while Creon talks to Antigone in the familiar (tu), she responds to him in the formal (vous). This difference gives a spin to their relationship which cannot easily be duplicated in English.

Reading this knowing that it was written & first performed in Vichy France gives certain phrases and actions a special significance. However, even without that Anouilh's version of this story had some interesting twists to Sophocles' original. Creon is a more ambivalent character; he seems more reasonable, more caring and less stubborn than the one in either the Sophocles or Heaney versions. Antigone's relationships with Haemon (Creon's son) and her sister Ismene are both expanded but her motivation for her actions in this version is much more murky. By lessening the contrast between the 2 characters you would expect that the tension would be less but Anouilh manages to make their confrontation even more heartbreaking as it has overtones of a family feud (and of course, if you read into it Creon as the French colloborator acting for the Nazis and Antigone as the Resistance fighter, then the drama is heightened even further).
… (mer)

Excellent full cast recording and the translation by Christopher Nixon was also very good.

I got this as a digital audiobook, not CDs

The film is better but the play is still good. How amazing it would have been to see Laurence Olivier (Becket) and Anthony Quinn (the king) star in its 1960 opening on the New York stage!
