This play sounds like the voices of educated British schoolgirls in the beginning; I was a little surprised to find that Jean Anouilh was a French national. I suppose the difference between British and French is not so great, but somehow I always thought the cadences were different, to say nothing of the cadences of girls from Greece two thousand years ago. But this is written in English and it is ravishingly comprehensible and utterly contemporary.What a joy is this play as written by Anouilh. [...]

I knew very little about Jean Anouilh before picking up this old Hill and Wang paperback collection of five of his plays--my main reason for grabbing it in the first place was a desire to get better acquainted with dramatists in general, and this fifty-cent, library-sale discard looked like a good way to do that. It probably wasn't until after I bought it, and after doing a little bit of research, that I learned anything about Anouilh--which still wasn't much: Antigone seemed to be the play he w [...]

My God Anouilh's great! His reworked version of Sophocles' Antigone, apparently an allegorical interpretation of the debate between Nazi collaborationists and members of the French Resistance, soars uncomfortably. Euridice, an intense romance infused with life-and-death mysticism, offers up squirm-worthy dialogue like the following:Listen, my friend, there are two races of beings. The masses, teeming and happy--common clay, if you like--eating, breeding, working, counting their pennies; people w [...]

Antigone: my reviewI read, or half-read, Eurydice and realized I don't like it. In Antigone, the author makes good use of our preexisting knowledge of the classic. Eurydice seems just predictable. Also, Angigone's negativity (Anouilh doesn't make her very likable, and that's her charm) works for the play; Eurydice, no. (Why 5 stars? Because if a collection has even one great work, I give 5 stars regardless of the other ones.)

I remembered that I had this collection while I was reading Romola, because there is some Antigone/Oedipus symbolism early in that novel and I did a little refresher with . Previously, I'd read two versions of the tragedy for high school English class in 1999, a classical translation which I didn't like much, and this Anouilh adaptation which I loved. This was, I think, the first time I encountered a serious rewrite of an ancient story, particularly within drama, and it hugely influenced the thi [...]

I really love Anouilh's Antigone, but the other plays I read in this collection (Eurydice and Romeo and Jeanette) didn't do much for me.Anouilh's Antigone is one of the most influential modern reworkings of Sophocles' play, and what I find interesting is that it more or less reverses the roles of Antigone and Creon vis-a-vis irrationality. In this version, Antigone has no real illusion that she is justified in burying her brother, but essentially admits that it is compulsive, while Creon has a v [...]

Antigone: 4 starsEurydice: 3 starsThe Ermine: 2 starsApparently doesn't have a separate listing for The Ermine like there's a listing for the first two. So, while I haven't finished this collection yet, I'm marking it as read for today to mark when I finished The Ermine. The last two plays their own listings.Obviously, I wasn't much a fan of The Ermine. I do love a good murder build-up but only when I'm actually attached to someone in the story. There wasn't much to attach myself to in this cas [...]

Eurydice is a wonderful play on the myth of Orpheus that sets in modern time. For me it was a heart wrenching read that insprired some very bad poetry on my part. That aside it is still a great play that I would love to see staged sometime. Also, in this collection is his version of Antigone. In Annoulih's play, she is fated to be a victim of a world gone amuck where her uncle has become a tryant and won't let her bury her beloved brother. Love, as in Eurydice, becomes the trigger. Now this play [...]

I'm reading this on Manny's recommendation. He likes it because he is an insane romantic. I've read Romeo and Jeanette, Antigone and Eurydice so far, I have The Ermine and The Rehearsal left.

I only read Antigone and Romeo and Jeannette from this. Pretty good. Antigone was awesome.

Antigone *****Eurydice ****The Ermine **The Rehearsal ***Romeo and Jeannette ****

از ژان آنویی چند نمایش نامه به فارسی ترجمه شده است، از آن جمله "رومئو و ژانت"

This book of plays begs the question, how many times can one playwrights ask, "Does it hurt to die?" and how many different answers can he give?

Excellent collection of plays, Antigone being my favorite.
