Eminent classicist Bernard Knox examines Sophocles's OEDIPUS TYRANNUS in the context of fifth-century B.C. Athens. In attempting to discover what the play meant to Sophocles and his contemporaries--disentangled from Freud's psychoanalytical interpretations--Knox casts fresh light on its timeless and universal nature. For this edition, Knox has provided a new Preface and a list of suggested readings.
