"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 action carried out after his death by his daughter Antigone"--P. [4] of cover
The birds by Aristophanes( file )
in English and held by 1,149 libraries worldwide
This is the first comprehensive edition in any language of the Birds, a play generally recognized as one of Aristophanes' masterpieces - both for its imaginative plot and for the charm and originality of its lyrics. The commentary gives generous help with the translation, to cater for the less advanced student of Greek, and also with interpretation and the lyric metres, as well as fully discussing the staging. It uses the resources of modern ornithology to elucidate Aristophanes' references to birds. The introduction discusses the nature of the play; its historical and mythological background; the history of the text, including the contributions of ancient scholars recorded in the scholia, which are exceptionally important in this play; and also more recent scholarship
