Classics Scholarship

Does anyone out there have a favorite writer on Sophocles? Let me know.

I'm struck by the creativity of current Greek scholarship.

Read Judith Butler's Antigone's Claim which was rather interesting reworking of the incest taboo and kinship angle using Lacan, Irigaray, and Hegel...

Of course my all time fav is still George Steiner's rendition in Antigones...
