Product Description
This activity works best as an introduction to the relationship between Antigone and Ismene in Robert Fagles' translation of "Antigone."

By juxtaposing Fagles and Heaney's translations, students can discern what is gained and lost in translating a work (what we should keep in mind while reading world literature), as well as what pervades Antigone's characterization in both pieces (what is important for the audience to know).
