The Theban Plays of Sophocles
This study group will read aloud and discuss the three Theban plays of Sophocles: OEDIPUS REX, OEDIPUS AT COLONUS, and ANTIGONE. We will get to know something about the Sophoclean hero, who demonstrates, as Bernard Knox has put it, “that man’s keenest insight is blindness, his highest knowledge ignorance, his soaring confidence and hope an illusion.” In addition to reading, we will view independently The Gospel at Colonus, plus excerpts from film treatments of Oedipus Rex and Antigone. Required text: Robert Fagles, Sophocles: The Three Theban Plays.
