Under the editorship of Peter Burian and Alan Shaprio, each volume includes a critical introduction, commentary on difficult passages, ample stage directions, and a glossary of the mythical names and geographical references encountered in the dialogue.Sophocles'Oedipus the Kingpaves the way as the first in the series to appear in paperback. In this highly-acclaimed translation of the greatest of all Greek tragedies, Stephen Berg--the well-known poet--and Diskin Clay--the distinguished classicist--combine their talents to offer the contemporary reader a dazzling version of Sophocles' timeless work. Emphasizing the intensity of the spoken language, they capture the unrelenting power of Sophoclean drama. No other English translation conveys the same terrifying emotional level, especially in the choral odes, the forceful descriptions of Jokasta's death, the blinding of Oedipus, and the final scene of desolation. Berg and Clay's translation--now available for the first time in paperback--both adheres strictly to the original meaning of the play and breathes new life into its language+-+3849050465416025ocn044955634file19000.28SophoclesOedipus RexCriticism, interpretation, etcDrama"Contains the unabridged text of the classic Greek tragedy about Oedipus, a king who inadvertantly kills his father and marries his mother."+-+922237670519983ocn015696158book19880.26Sophocles' Oedipus RexCriticism, interpretation, etcA critical guide to Oedipus rex, Sophocles' Greek tragedy which addresses questions about the power of fate+-+9364902235188224ocn070224027book18940.56SophoclesOedipus at ColonusDrama"Sophocles' Oedipus at Colonus tells the story of the last day in the life of Oedipus. It was written at the end of the fifth century BCE in Athens, in the final years of the "Golden Age" of Athenian culture, and in the last year of Sophocles' own life. At the center of the play is the mysterious transformation of Oedipus from an old and blind beggar, totally dependent on his daughters, to the man who rises from his seat and, without help, leads everyone to the place where he is destined to die. In the background of this transformation stands the grove of the Furies, the sacred place of the implacable goddesses who pursue the violators of blood relationships. Although Oedipus, who killed his father and married his mother, is an obvious target of the Furies' vengeance, he enters their grove at the beginning of the play, sure that it is the resting place Apollo has predicted for him. The reversals and paradoxes in the play speak to the struggle that Oedipus' life and the action of the play bring vividly before us: how do we as humans, subject to constant change, find stable ground on which to stand and define our moral lives? Sophocles offers his play as a witness to the remarkable human capacity to persevere in this struggle."--BOOK JACKET+-+595086046518741ocn000244281book19680.26O'Brien, Michael JohnTwentieth century interpretations of Oedipus Rex; a collection of critical essaysTwenty-seven essays collected from books and journals for the student presenting varied and opposing reflections of Sophocles' tragedy15392ocn044954391file19930.39Moddelmog, DebraReaders and mythic signs the Oedipus myth in twentieth-century fictionCriticism, interpretation, etcSome literary scholars view myth criticism as passe; an approach to literature that enjoyed a heyday in the l950s and 1960s before being replaced by approaches that are considered to be more theoretically sophisticated and satisfying, such as feminism, new historicism, and deconstruction. Moddelmog argues that there are many good reasons not to cast out myth criticism from the community of critical approaches. Most obvious among them is that myth has attracted many writers of this century -- from James Joyce to Thomas Pynchon, Virginia Woolf to Flannery OʹConnor, Thomas Mann to Alain Robbe-Grillet, William Faulkner to Alberto Moravia -- and that to ignore myth is to dismiss an essential part of their work. Moddelmog suggests that by reconstruing the relationship between myth and literature, we will find that mythic approaches are frequently not only necessary but also highly stimulating, engaging readers in many varieties of questions, quests, and conclusions. -- Publisher description+-+119368453512302ocn026632653book19930.47Segal, CharlesOedipus tyrannus : tragic heroism and the limits of knowledge+-+542422053532410962ocn606818520file20080.23SophoclesOedipus trilogy Oedipus the King, Oedipus at Colonus & AntigoneDramaOedipus the King is Sophocles' legendary rendition of the myth of the great king Oedipus, perhaps the best known of all of the Greek Tragedies. When an oracle foretells that the young prince Oedipus will grow up to murder his father he is cast out of the kingdom by the king who hopes by doing so that he will avoid his fate. Oedipus grows up and many years later, not knowing his own identity, or the identity of his father, meets him at a crossroad where they argue and the king is killed. The rest of the tale pivots around the unraveling of this tangled family history and the appalling discovery of, not only patricide, but Oedipus' subsequent incest in unwittingly marrying his own mother+-+951669022632410271ocn000543945book19600.29Velikovsky, ImmanuelOedipus and Akhnaton: myth and historyBiographyProperly following the author's "Ages in chaos", this book tells the story of Pharaoh Akhnaton whose life, the author maintains, is the basis of the Greek story of Oedipus9682ocn000268596book19680.47Cameron, AlisterThe identity of Oedipus the king; five essays on the Oedipus tyrannus8822ocn019393490book19890.50Breuer, LeeThe gospel at ColonusDramaA founding member of the acclaimed New York-based company Mabou Mines, Breuer's gifts as a writer and director have have made him a mainstay of the theatrical avant-garde+-+69470958458543ocn000307587book19290.31Landis, PaulFour famous Greek playsDrama82711ocn000493224book19480.53Mullahy, PatrickOedipus: myth and complex; a review of psychoanalytic theory8116ocn050188710visu19850.29SophoclesOedipus RexDramaFilm adaptationsThe Shakespearean Festival Players, speaking through Greek masks, present the tragedy of Oedipus.

Unpretentious and direct, Slavitt's translation preserves the innate verve and energy of the dramas, engaging the reader or audience member directly with Sophocles' great texts. Slavitt chooses to present the plays not in narrative sequence but in the order in which they were composed: "Antigone", "Oedipus Tyrannos", "Oedipus at Colonus"; he thereby underscores the fact that the story of "Oedipus" is one to which Sophocles returned over the course of his lifetime. This arrangement also lays bare the record of Sophocles' intellectual and artistic development. Renowned as a poet and translator, Slavitt has translated Ovid, Virgil, Aeschylus, Aristophanes, Ausonius, Prudentius, Valerius Flaccus, and Bacchylides as well as works in French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Hebrew. In this volume, he avoids personal intrusion on the texts and relies upon the theatrical machinery of the plays themselves. The result is a major contribution to the art of translation and a version of the Oedipus plays that will appeal enormously to readers, theatre directors, and actors+-+38559959656863ocn000505018book19690.47Hughes, TedSeneca's OedipusDrama+-+487745620532461711ocn023184951file19900.66Enesco, GeorgesŒdipeDramaOedipe: Tragédie-lyrique en quatre actes, op.23.
