    Kindle 12th century.co ✓ The Three Theban Plays PDF/EPUB ñ The Three MOBI three ebok, theban kindle, plays mobile, The Three download, The Three Theban Plays PDFThe Three Theban Pays are the absolute pillar stone of ancient Greek drama and in my opinion they contain two of the best plays ever written Oedipus the King and Antigone Oedipus the King because sometimes life's a real bitch Fate is unavoidable in ancient Greek Tragedy Trying to avoid it will only lead to it and doing nothing will lead you there too So if a God tells you that you will die at the hands of your son and that he will then go on to steal your wife you’d best do nothing because it’s going to happen anyway Any preventative action you take will only lead to the same ending So you’re pretty much screwed You might as well lie down and accept it The God's are mean But nope if you’re like the King of Thebes you’ll leave your infant son for dead instead Poor Oedipus He really didn’t have much chance in life He could do nothing to intervene with his own destin

    Kindle 12th century.co ✓ The Three Theban Plays PDF/EPUB ñ The Three MOBI three ebok, theban kindle, plays mobile, The Three download, The Three Theban Plays PDFThis Robert Fagles translation is beautiful far superior to other versions I've read FittsFitzgerald or David Greene's for instance The language is vibrant and compelling an important asset for reading drama on the page If you've not read Sophocles since a forced and indifferent slog during high school I'd encourage you to rediscover it in a better light with this translation Highly recommendedThis was my first time reading all three Oedipus plays in succession and I appreciated that this volume presents them chronologically by Sophocles' date of composition rather than seuentially according to their place in the Theban myth It's helpful to think of the three plays not as a trilogy but rather three separate tellings of the myth This is how the Greek audiences would have seen them and this arrangement also serves to better highlight S

These stories are not at all boring or dated or difficult to read Pick the translation that suits you whether poetry or prose or somewhere in between and dive into some incredible drama
