Product code: 2000

Product summary:

(Ex Library) Antigone; Oedipus the King; Oedipus at Colonus

Product description:

Translated by Robert Fagles. Introduction and notes by Bernard Knox.

Penguin Classics, printed 1984.

Towering over the rest of Greek tragedy, these three plays 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.
