Oedipus Tyrannus

Author(s): Sophocles

∙ Classics & Latin

Cambridge Translations from Greek Drama is a series of new translations which are faithful to the original Greek plays in content and tone, but which have the immediacy of modern English. The series aims to enable both Classics students and Drama students, and indeed anyone with an interest in the theatre, to approach Classical plays with confidence and understanding. Oedipus Tyrannus is the sixth title in the series, and is aimed primarily at A-level and undergraduate students in the UK, and college students in North America. A full commentary is provided which runs alongside the translation. It includes useful notes and questions to encourage discussion on the themes and dramatic qualities of the text, and also more practical issues of staging and performance. Features of the book include notes on pronunciation of names and a plot synopsis. Background information to the story is also provided.
