Ebook Review:

Oedipus in exile, searching for his identity and achieving immortality, his daughter, Antigone, defending her integrity and ideals to the death —these heroic figures have moved playgoers and readers since the fifth century BC.
Towering over the rest of Greek tragedy, the three plays that tell the story of the fated Theban royal family—Antigone, Oedipus the King and Oedipus Oedipus in exile, searching for his identity and achieving immortality, his daughter, Antigone, defending her integrity and ideals to the death —these heroic figures have moved playgoers and readers since the fifth century BC.
Towering over the rest of Greek tragedy, the three plays that tell the story of the fated Theban royal family—Antigone, Oedipus the King and Oedipus at Colonus-- are among the most enduring and timeless dramas ever written. Robert Fagles' translation conveys all of Sophocles' lucidity and power: the cut and thrust of his dialogue, his ironic edge, the surge and majesty of his choruses and, above all, the agonies and triumphs of his characters.
