Meet the Author


Sophocles (ca. 497/6 B.C.E.–407/6 B.C.E.) was the most acclaimed dramatist of his era, winning more than twenty festival competitions in ancient Athens. He is believed to have written 123 plays, but only seven have survived in complete form. His life spanned the rise and fall of the Athenian Empire. David Mulroy is a professor emeritus of classics at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee. His translations of Oedipus Rex, Antigone, and The Complete Poetry of Catullus are also published by the University of Wisconsin Press.
