Antigone by Sophocles( visu )
26 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in English and No Linguistic Content and held by 1,188 libraries worldwide
Presents the third of the three Theban plays by Sophocles in a new translation by Don Taylor that remains true to the text, setting the plays in the past yet not the distant past and dispensing with the masks. This final segment of the trilogy centers around the conflict between moral and political law, as the tale of Oedipus and his family comes to a tragic end

22 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in English and held by 1,149 libraries worldwide

Oedipus at Colonus by Sophocles( visu )
17 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in English and held by 459 libraries worldwide
This play recounts the blind, exiled Oedipus' final days. The primary action involves a fight over where Oedipus is to die (as that place is to become hallowed ground). Familial interactions also play a key role in the drama
The gospel at Colonus ( visu )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 238 libraries worldwide
Told from the perspective of a Black Pentecostal preacher and his congregation, this 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 ( visu )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 113 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
The Theban plays ( visu )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 104 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
Oedipus at Colonus ( visu )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 81 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. Protected by the ruler of Thebes against the armies of Creon who have come in pursuit, he curses his son Polynices for indifference and ingratitude. Oedipus in this play is old and rails against the indignities of old age. Sophocles, nearly 90 at the time of its composition, apparently wrote the play to prove he was of sound mind; his son, it seems, was trying to claim Sophocles' estate by accusing his father of senility. With Anthony Quayle as Oedipus, John Shrapnel as Creon, Juliet Stevenson as Antigone, and Kenneth Haigh as Polynices

The student of Prague Der Student von Prag ( visu )
1 edition published in 1912 in German and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This is the best known production of the pre-war period, borrowing freely from the romantic fantasies of E.T.A. Hoffmann, from the Faust legend and from Poe's story William Wilson. The story concerns a poor student, Baldwin, who enters into a contract with the sorcerer, Scapinelli, an incarnation of the Devil. Scapinelli promises Baldwin an advantageous marriage and great wealth on the condition that he, Scapinelli, be given the student's mirror reflection. 'The Student of Prague already exhibits that preoccupation with setting and atmosphere which was to be characteristic of the entire German cinema' (Lotte Eisner)
