    Author Information
    Sophocles(ca. 497/6-407/6 BCE) 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 a complete form. David Mulroy is professor of classics at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He has translated "The Complete Poetry of Catullus," also published by the University of Wisconsin Press.
    Review quote
    "Introductory notes on such matters as the historical background, fate vs. free will, and (inevitably) the Oedipus Complex are clear and useful."--Peter Green, "The New York Review of Books"
