Written by Sophocles around 425 BCE, "Oedipus Rex" is a classic Greek tragedy that depicts the struggle between man and fate. Oedipus' story forms the foundation for the symbolic conflict between sons and fathers, a theme that has lost none of its dramatic punch in the ensuing centuries. The meticulous scholarship presented in this new "Bloom's Guides" title offers its readers fresh insight into this time-honored classic.
