Written by Sophocles around 425 BCE, Oedipus Rex, or Oedipus the King is a classic Greek tragedy in that it depicts the search for self-understanding, and the struggle between man and fate. The story forms the foundation for the symbolic conflict between fathers and sons. Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations offers a range of salient critical viewpoints on this, one of history's most important plays. Thoughtful analyses are supplemented by features that make this resource ideal for those preparing in-depth research papers.
Besides presenting a comprehensive and authoritative guide to understanding Sophocles, this companion provides scholars and students with compelling fresh perspectives upon a broad range of issues in the field of Sophoclean studies.
