An intensely personal invocation of the ancient Greek tragedy, The Antigone Poems was created in the 1970s while writer Marie Slaight and artist Terrence Tasker were living in Montreal and Toronto. A bold retelling of the ancient tale of defiance and justice, its poetry and images capture the anguish and despair of the original tale in an unembellished modernized rendition.

Review - '...A beautifully bound, impressive collection with language as evocative as its illustrations.' - Kirkus Reviews

Review #2 - 'Haunting. ...a disturbingly poignant and startlingly vivid portrait of one woman's suffering in the face of pain and heartbreak. It will surely not be forgotten after the turn of the last page.' - The San Francisco Book Review
