About Book

Book Description
Though I don't care for most criticism, I've been looking for a copy of Freud's review of this one and Hamlet.

Download Description
Written in 5th century Greece by perhaps the greatest author of tragic play of that time era. The action of Oedipus the King begins during a time of plague in Thebes. The gods demand vengeance for the death of Laius as the price of lifting the city's punishment. Oedipus, who has been a wise and just ruler of the people who made him their king, is determined to seek justice. Through his efforts, he discovers that he is the murderer of Laius. The storyline continues in Oedipus at Colonus, which features the blind former king as a shattered old man. His daughter, Antigone, is his loyal companion. Wandering together, they come upon a sacred grove that is protected by the Furies, who are also known as the Eumenides-the protectors of Athens. Antigone, the play that wraps together the final events of these characters' sad lives, begins in Thebes. After her father's death, Antigone has returned to the royal palace where she was raised. Her family's tragedies have been compounded by her brothers Eteocles and Polynices, who have killed each other in war, as foretold by their father.
