Alexandrou's relatively short but ideologically complex play deserves to receive a more accessible edition in Greek and a twenty‐first‐century translation into English, which are both provided in Chapter 6. The refashioned character of the 1951 Antigone unmasks a number of contradictions that nag at the accounts of the heroic resistance of the Left. Moreover, the pervasive suspicion that steers almost every action of the play and creates its plot and plots is recognizable and transferable to the broader Cold War climate—and to the workings of ruthless politics at large.
