Book Overview
A collection of all three of Sophocles' three Theban plays, Oedipus Rex, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone. Each work was part of a tetralogy, a composition made up of four distinct works. The other three works of each tetralogy are now lost. Although these are published under a single cover, they are not a trilogy and do not contain a continuous narrative. The three plays were written for different festivals, sometimes years apart. Nonetheless, the three plays cover the fate of the royal family of King Oedipus at the city state Thebes during and after the reign of King Oedipus.Sophocles is one of three ancient Greeks tragedy writers, whose works have survived for posterity. Along with Aeschylus and Euripides. Sophocles wrote over 120 plays, but only seven manuscripts have survived. During his life at Athens, Sophocles competed in over thirty competitions at the festival of Dionysus. He won twenty-four, and never placed lower than second. Sophocles e is remembered as the founding father of western tragedy.
