The critically acclaimed Fitts and Fitzgerald translation of Sophocles' Oedipus Cycle that chronicles the tragic downfall of the royal family of Thebes.

The ancient myth of Oedipus, which still reverberates to this day, 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 heroic, defiant stand made by his daughter Antigone.

Written for a modern audience, these English translations of Sophocles' trilogy aim to capture the directness, simplicity, and concentrated richness of Sophocles' plays in clear, credible English verse that is both readable and actable.
