Oedipus is one of the most well known mythological figures of the ancient Greeks, and he was immortalized in Sophocles’ trilogy of plays Antigone, Oedipus the King, and Oedipus at Colonus. Sophocles wrote Antigone first, even though it was the last of the trilogy chronologically. Each play in the trilogy is considered among the greatest plays ever written, and they were admired by the Ancient Greeks as well. Antigone helped create the genre of tragedy in its day, and people around the world are still familiar with Oedipus and his fate today as a result.

This edition of Sophocles’ Antigone includes a table of contents and is illustrated.
