Antigone by Sophocles( visu )
56 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in English and No Linguistic Content and held by 2,267 libraries worldwide
This play recounts the story of Oedipus, King of Thebes, a man, who out of stubborn pride, must know the truth at all costs
Oedipus at Colonus by Sophocles( visu )
19 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in English and held by 494 libraries worldwide
Bearer of an almost unspeakable, immutable fate, Oedipus yet feels himself a man chosen--that is, favored--by the gods. Now an old man, blind and outcast, Oedipus wanders through Greece guided by his daughter Antigone until he comes to Colonus, where he knows he will die. This second play of the Oedipus saga finds Oedipus railing against the indignities of old age, possibly reflecting the authors own sentiments, as Sophocles was nearly 90 at the time of its composition
The gospel at Colonus ( visu )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 252 libraries worldwide
Told from the perspective of a Black Pentecostal preacher and his congregation, the play dramatizes legendary Greek character Oedipus' last days on Earth. Having blinded himself out of guilt, Oedipus makes a solace-seeking pilgrimage to Colonus, the place where he believes he is meant to die. Primarily through song, the preacher and his congregation translate this story of redemption into a Christian parable
Antigone by Sophocles( visu )
2 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and held by 142 libraries worldwide
Antigone is perhaps the most easily accessible of all the great classical tragedies, its theme clear and up-to-date: the conflict between moral and political law. Now the tale of Oedipus and his family comes to its end-he, his wife Jocasta, his sons, and now, at the last, his daughter, all dead. Antigone is not the only victim in the play; Creon too comes to a tragic downfall-although he repents in time, bureaucratic ritual results in the deaths of Creon's son and wife, burdening him with guilt as well as grief. With Juliet Stevenson, John Shrapnel, and John Gielgud
