Sophocles, one of the greatest of the Greek tragedians, gives us three plays popular in ancient Athens and still relevant today. Join us for a close reading and discussion of Oedipus Rex, Antigone, and Oedipus at Colonus. Major themes to be examined are the desire for truth at any cost, civil disobedience and a search for identity.

Read: Sophocles: The Three Theban Plays, translated by Robert Fagles, (ISBN 0140444254. As this translation will be heavily referenced during class, students are urged not to purchase a different one.)
