Summary (From the publisher):

Considered by many the greatest of the classical Greek tragedies, Oedipus Rex is Sophocles' finest play and a work of extraordinary power and significance.

In presenting the story of King Oedipus and the tragedy that ensues when he discovers he has inadvertantly 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.
