Product Description

Review

Constantine goes for an "equivalence of spirit" in a more familiar idiom. This is at once a bold and humble undertaking, and has produced poetry of a remarkable luminosity and intensity, written in rhythms and cadences which recreate, both in their extremities of grief and their urgent hope, the immediacy of the original. --Karen Leeder, Oxford Poetry

Format: Paperback
I find this volume helpful for making some sense of the DVDs of Orff's Oedipus and Antigonae. They are very committed productions. The subtitles follow David Constantine's translation of Holderlin's version of these works. They make for difficult subtitles so it helps to have this volume to study the texts. It certainly may be necessary to get translations form the original Greek that are more readable as well. See the "Orff for English Speakers" tag.
