Description
The ancient myth of Oedipus provided Sophocles with material for three great tragedies—Oedipus Rex, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone—that together recount the downfall of Oedipus, king of Thebes; his death in exile; and the action carried out after his death by his daughter Antigone. Originally published in 1949, Dudley Fitts's and Robert Fitzgerald's English translations of Sophocles's Theban plays were written for a modern audience; they set out to capture the directness, simplicity, and concentrated richness of the plays in clear, credible English verse that is both readable and performable.
