The best part of teaching this play is watching students figure out who Oedipus really is. I look forward to it every year, and it never disappoints.

Also, this is just an awesome play.

Fall 2012:
It occurred to me this year that I am super-lucky to teach a class where I basically set the curriculum. What this means is that I choose all the literature, and then I only have to choose the stuff I like.

I love this play, even having read it maybe 25 times. It never grows old. It never loses its appeal. It is always interesting and, somehow, always new.

Man. That Sophocles. What a genius.
