Notes: "Introduction by Robert Brustein"--Cover.
When he was not writing tragedies, acting in his own plays, and innovating ancient Greek theater, Sophocles served as an ordained priest at a temple for the god of medicine. Thinking about the end of life, Sophocles began outlining Oedipus the King, a tragedy that examines fate, death, and the mysterious depths of the human psyche themes that he explored in all of his masterful plays. Setting the playwright in context to his personal life, social, historical and political events, other writers of influence, and more, the reader will quickly gain a deep understanding of Sophocles and the plays he wrote. The book features: Sophocles in an Hour, the main essay of the book; Sophocles In a Minute, a snapshot chronology; a complete listing of Sophocles' work; a list of Sophocles' contemporaries in all fields; excerpts from Sophocles' significant works; an extensive bibliography grouped according to type of reader; and an index of the main essay. Playwrights in an Hour is a series devoted to the most produced and studied playwrights in the English language, from the Greek masters to contemporary writers, and written by leading authorities in the field.
