Read this in high school, but images from the book have stuck with me over the years. The ending is so weird and perverse--I'm amazed they allow teenagers to read this. It's fitting that there's a complex named after it. The Greeks were interested in exploring the darker aspects of the human psyche, but within a framework that made it palatable: "He didn't realize what he was doing!"
