Product description

Sophocles (497/6 406 BCE), considered one of the world s greatest poets, forged tragedy from the heroic excess of myth and legend. Seven complete plays are extant, including Oedipus Tyrannus, Ajax, Antigone, and Philoctetes. Among many fragments that also survive is a substantial portion of the satyr drama The Searchers.

Review quote

Lloyd-Jones' prose is, then, just right for today's taste, which is intolerant of another's poetic sensibility interposed between itself and Sophocles.--Donald Lyons "New Criterion "
