Didn’t Brecht already change the story of Antigone itself and reimagine her as a revolutionary? If you’re going to pretend to be a playwright I’m dreading this book because most philosophers turn out to be authors then I hope that Zizek doesn’t think this idea is entirely original and that, Brecht being Brecht, it was already done… and done better.

Phillip Yes, Brecht as well as any number of other playwrights has rewritten Antigone. The introduction actually puts this new version–of which Zizek says, …more Yes, Brecht as well as any number of other playwrights has rewritten Antigone.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Feb 10, Petra Miocic rated it really liked it Shelves: Zizek’s project in rewriting Antigone is theoretical, rather than aesthetic.

His version shows three endings to the Antigone story–in a really compact space, only about 30 pages of actual play, qntigona an intro almost as long–in which first Creon triumphs and experiences the tragedy Sophokles gave us, then Antigone triumphs and Thebes is destroyed by riots, and finally where the Chorus recognizes that both Creon and Antigone’s ethical stances will lead to violence and tragedy and the Chorus rises up to establish a collective democratic?

One thing that’s really interesting here is that the Chorus, even though it ostensibly speaks for the people of Thebes, really sounds like Zizek. Although the idea is for the Chorus to take on a Brechtian distancing in order to educate the audience through the play and the performers’ self-aware critical commentary, much of the Choral language speaks in Zizek’s style: Zizek often begins from a commonly accepted premise, then explains why that premise is actually self-contradictory, then explains why the self-contradiction is actually self-contradictory in other words, here’s what onjiga believe, here’s why it’s wrong, and here’s why the wrongness is wrong.


For instance, during the first ending–which roughly follows Sophokles’ plotline–the Chorus tells Antigone that her mistake was the vanity of refusing to give up her sacrifice.

That she is unable to transcend and become a properly ethical figure precisely because she is willing to sacrifice everything but her sacrifice, everything but her fidelity to her own truth.


To truly be an ethical figure, the Xntigona says, she would need to be willing to sacrifice even the evental truth of her sacrificial gesture. This is a profound insight, but it is a typically Zizekian insight, and so even as the Chorus ostensibly speaks for the Theban people, it continues to speak with Zizek’s voice.

And this may be the fourth reversal in the play’s Zizekian triple reversal structure. Apr 29, Marijana rated it really liked it. Jedino je ispravno kad skupno vladaju. Stellar concept and deployment of the swerve, the multiple veerings of this re-imagined drama. Feb 15, Mia rated it liked it. Pobuna Tebanaca otima se kontroli, grad gori, a poludjela Antigona tumara u vatri. Oboje brane svoje postupke, no uzalud. Zizek manages to put even more weight behind the complexity and ambiguity in Antigone, he even manages to raise several new questions to ponder.

The surreal Lola Rennt type playing with time in this retelling allows us to play with the idea of what would happen if things had gone differently than what we know from the classic story. This retelling is a political work and makes no attemps to try and conceal this. It is refreshing to read something where the author dares speak This was wonderful. It is refreshing to read something where the author dares speak up politically – nkjiga that is said, Zizek isn’t preachy and leaves plenty of room for ambiguity, especially with the incredible ending.


Inanilmaz lezzetli bir paralelleme. Tamam, koronun yonetime el koymasi karikaturlestirilmis, Kreon’la “karsi kenar” arasindaki gerilim nasil oldu da bu ikisiyle koro arasinda bir gerilim yaratti, bu gerilimi gostermeden oluvermis gibi, koro yalnizca “halk”a indirgenmis -aslinda wntigona yunan tiyatrosunda oldugu gibi kabul edilse devrimin ruhu bile cikarmis-vs. Ama fikir cok cok cok antifona.
