Ajax / Electra / Oedipus Tyrannus

Ajax / Electra / Oedipus Tyrannus

Sophocles Hugh Lloyd-Jones
4.5/5 (126 ratings)
Sophocles , with Aeschylus and Euripides, was one of the three great tragic poets of Athens, and is considered one of the world's greatest poets. The subjects of his plays were drawn from mythology and legend. Each play contains at least one heroic figure, a character whose strength, courage, or intelligence exceeds the human norm—but who also has more than ordinary pride and self-assurance. These qualities combine to lead to a tragic end.
Hugh Lloyd-Jones gives us, in two volumes, a new translation of the seven surviving plays. Volume I contains Oedipus Tyrannus , Ajax , and Electra .
