Oedipus at Colonus - Sophocles, Eamon Grennan, Rachel Kitzinger I really enjoyed this one but I can't put my finger on why...

... it's greek tragedy. literally.

Maybe I'm just impressed by Oedipus making a triumphal end to his cursed and whiny life. I don't know.

...anyway, I really really liked "Antigone" (the 3rd play in this trilogy-- I read that a few years ago)....

so... if you're doing greek tragedies, the whole trilogy is worth reading, I guess.
