The myth of Oedipus, which reverberates to our own day, provided Sophocles with material for three great tragedies--Oedipus Rex, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone--which together recount the downfall of Oedipus, king of Thebes, his death in exile, and the action carried out after his death by his daughter Antigone.
These English versions of Sophocles' trilogy were written for a modern audience by Dudley Fitts and Robert Fitzgerald, two gifted poets and Hellenists. Their air was to capture the directness, simplicity, and concentrated richness of the poetry of Sophocles' plays in clear and credible English verse that is both readable and actable. The resulting works have received critical acclaim in both the United States and Great Britain.
