The Burial at Thebes is Seamus Heaneys new verse translation of Sophocles great tragedy Antigone. Whose eponymous heroine is one of the most sharply individualized and compelling figures in Western drama. Faithful to the local row and to the fierce specificity of the play' s time and place The Burial at Thebes honours the seperate and irreconcilable claims of its opposed voices, as they enact the ancient but perennial conflict between family and state in a time of crises pitching the morality of private allegiance against that of public services. Above all The Burial at Thebes hoonours the sovereign urgency and grandeur of the Antigone in which language speaks truth to power then and now.
