In the mid-1980s, film director Marco Bellocchio and renegade psychoanalyst Massimo Fagioli cowrote "The Devil in the Flesh," a politically and sexually charged film illustrating some of Fagioli's controversial theories. Echoing the anti-Lacanian sentiment popularized by Gilles Deleuze, the film is perhaps best remembered for a scene in which the character Andrea misreads a section of the famous Greek tragedy" Antigone." But this scene has itself been frequently misread, opening up the text to questions of feminism, politics, and the representation of Antigone--a figure frequently used and abused in feminist politics. Displaying considerable analytic depth, "Misreading Postmodern Antigone" considers these divergent readings and what they have to tell us about contemporary society.
