    The Three Theban Pays are the absolute pillar stone of ancient Greek drama, and in my opinion they contain two of the best plays ever written Oedipus the King and Antigone. Oedipus the King because sometimes life s a real bitch Fate is unavoidable in ancient Greek Tragedy Trying to avoid it will only lead to it, and doing nothing will lead you there too So if a God tells you that you will die at the hands of your son, and that he will then go on to steal your wife, you d best do nothing because it s going to happen anyway Any preventative action you take will only lead to the same ending So, you re pretty much screwed You might as well lie down and accept it The God s are mean But, nope, if you re like the King of Thebes you ll leave your infant son for dead instead Poor Oedipus He really didn t have much chance in life He could do nothing to intervene with his own destiny, mainly because his tragic flaw is his lack of awareness about his true origins He hears a rumour of...

    Two years ago, I read the Theban plays in my ninth grade class I liked them I promptly forgot every single thing I thought about them I have a terrible memory So when audible offered a free audio of the plays with a full cast narration I went for it And of course loved it again The narration helped this audio stars the excellent Jamie Glover as Oedipus and the always talented Hayley Atwell as Antigone, but casting choices such as Samantha Bond as Jocasta, Michael Melone as Creon, and Lydia Leonard as Ismene stand out as well Oedipus the King Okay, can I just say Oedipus did nothing wrong It s a very Classical idea that fate is unavoidable and undeniable, but it s just not an idea I agree with Oedipus is a dude trying to escape a horrible fate, a dude who runs and moves countries to avoid a prophecy saying he will kill his father and have kids with his mother He has literally no way of knowing that he is actually falling into that fate Sophocles would love me to believe it is his fault I do not agree Oedipus deserved better 2k18 What I do like about this play, however, is that it is a tragedy where no character has purposefully fucked things up Every single character from the later unsympathetic Creon to the excellently written Jocasta is sympathetic It is so upsetting to see it unfold, see these characters have their lives so completely ruined I was near tears during Oedipus final speech Not a single one of them deserv...

    Take these things to heart, my son, I warn you All men make mistakes, it is only human.But once the wrong is done, a mancan turn his back on folly, misfortune too,if he tries to make amends, however low he s fallen,and stops his bullnecked ways Stubbornness brands you for stupidity pride is a crime.No, yield to the dead Never stab the fighter when he s down Where s the glory, killing the dead twice over Tiresias, the blind prophet, to Creon, king of Thebes, uncle of Antigone in Antigone Three very good decisions led me to finally read the Penguin Classic Edition of Sophocles three Theban plays First and foremost, I have eventually decided a few month ago to take a course in Classical Mythology This has always been my wish, but as with so many things in life it had been postponed for years The course did not open Pandora s box, it has instead enhanced my understanding of literature and art in general and given me new insights of how Classical mythology is part of our cultural legacy Amongst others we had to read Sophocles Oedipus the King I knew, somewhere in my house I would find a battered, yellow Reclam edition ...

    This Robert Fagles translation is beautiful far superior to other versions I ve read Fitts Fitzgerald or David Greene s, for instance The language is vibrant and compelling, an important asset for reading drama on the page If you ve not read Sophocles since a forced and indifferent slog during high school, I d encourage you to rediscover it in a better light with this translation Highly recommended.This was my first time reading all three Oedipus plays in succession, and I appreciated that this volume presents them chronologically by Sophocles date of composition rather than sequentially according to their place in the Theban myth It s helpful to think of the three plays not as a trilogy, but rather three separate tellings of the myth This is how the Greek audiences would have seen them, and this arrangement also serves to better highlight Sophocles development as a playwright.The introductory essays by Bernard Knox are also a joy to read for those who are interes...

    Wonderful I know we need to read these in modern translations, but how amazing is it that we still have works from ancient Greece These stories are not at all boring, or dated, or difficult to read Pick the translation that suits you,...
