Read in December, 2010

This is not a typical Greek tragedy. It far more about argument than action. Though it tells the story of Oedipus to its conclusion, it doesn't belong alongside its predecessor for analysis. The arguments are worth 4 or 5 stars, however, because the characters so completely believe in what they are saying, and when they are shut down, it is like wiping out the foot of a mountain. Great fiery actable theatre.
