Description - Antigone by Ruby Blondel
"Woodruff's rendering of the dialogue moves along easily; these are lines that any contemporary Antigone, Creon or Haemon might speak. Antigone's words on the gods' unwritten laws keep close to the Greek and yet would be authentic for a modern speaker. . . .Woodruff's Introduction is a strong, clear, and clever blend of basic traditional information (to those who know Greek tragedy) and fresh insights." -Karelisa Hartigan, The Classical Bulletin
