This book is a great example of Greek tragedy and a definite classic. It is a must read for all who love historic dramas. Sophocles displays his thoughts about the times including the Greek Law of Revenge, moral law vs. civil law, and totalitarianism vs. democracy. You absolutely must read this wonderful story.

Overall I thought that this was a really good play. At some points it got confusing. It was hard to figure out what the meaning of some of the things that were said was. But, I still think that the play was really good.
