"A great work of world literature has at last become a great poem in English. Mulroy's translation is far superior to other available English verse translations."--Robert J. Rabel, editor of Approaches to Homer, Ancient and Modern
"Introductory notes on such matters as the historical background, fate vs. free will, and (inevitably) the Oedipus Complex are clear and useful."--Peter Green, The New York Review of Books--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
From the Back Cover
In presenting the story of King Oedipus and the tragedy that ensues when he discovers he has inadvertently killed his father and married his mother, the play exhibits near-perfect harmony of character and action. Moreover, the masterly use of dramatic irony greatly intensifies the impact of the agonizing events and emotions experienced by Oedipus and the other characters in the play. Now these and many other facets of this towering tragedy may be studied and appreciated in Dover's attractive inexpensive edition of one of the great landmarks of Western drama.
