Pub. Date: 01/28/1975
Publisher: Harlan Davidson, Inc.
Part of the trilogy that includes Oedipus Rex and Antigone, this drama of classical antiquity represents the great Athenian playwright's crowning achievement in depicting the painful quest for truth and self-knowledge that results in the triumph of the spirit. Blamed for the discord within his former kingdom and banished by its citizens, Oedipus wanders for years in lonely exile until he finds a haven in a sacred olive grove at Colonus. Unabridged republication of the Sir George Young translation.
