    Abstract

    In this volume, Mark Daniel Cohen offers, in the first part, a fresh and intelligent look at Sophocles, re-writing Antigone almost as a Beckettian version of Tristan and Isolde. The modern-day domestic drama is continued in the second part of the volume, in which selected poems aptly combine the trivial and the sublime, the mark and measure of every great classic. This introduction offers an analysis of both, drama and poetry and demonstrates the extent to which creative writing enhances a highly reflective and philosophical thought.
