This study consists of a literary critical investigation into Jean Cocteau’s Antigone
, which combines traditional and contemporary computer-assisted approaches to the text. The first half of the book considers the place of the Antigone story, as well as myth in general, in French, while also offering a description of the evolution of the tragedy from Sophocles to the present. After this, the second half of the book is devoted to an in-depth study of Cocteau’s Antigone
itself, from written drafts to its stage production. This multi-disciplinary study offers an original and timely contribution to the literature on the subject.
