Why Should I Buy This Book?

Greek Classics have long been the bedrock of a proper and thorough education. Reading about the tracks and lives of our ancestors cannot help but uplift us in our current life's path as it arms us with lessons of the past. Tomes have been written on the subject, but to put it in very modern, even economic terms, a recent article in the NY Times put it into such a perspective with an article on what books one finds on the shelves of the world’s most successful CEO’s. The article points out that one doesn’t find “how-to-business books” on their shelves, but rather works of philosophy, poetry, Greek classics, and other books of general knowledge.

The story of Oedipus, as told by Sophocles in Oedipus the King, is famous for presenting a grim and compelling conflict between free will and fate. When Thebes is threatened by a divinely ordained plague, Oedipus, the king, a great and good man famous for his intelligence and courage, is determined to save the city. He launches his own investigation and pursues it relentlessly to its deeply ironic conclusion, an ending which brings to light the horrific secret of his own identity.

Oedipus the King has long been regarded, not only as Sophocles' finest play, but also as the purest and most powerful expression of Greek tragic drama. In this new verse translation, Ian Johnston captures the compelling tension of Sophocles' drama, the intense poetic vision which has made this play justly celebrated as one of the great masterpieces of Western literature.
