Oedipus the King by Sophocles

January 30, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


featuring William Race, George L. Paddison Professor of Classics Emeritus

“Considered by many the greatest of the classic Greek tragedies.”– Dover Publications

Sophocles’ Oedipus the King has never been surpassed for the raw and terrible power with which its hero struggles to answer the eternal question, ‘Who am I?’ The play, a story of a king who acting entirely in ignorance kills his father and marries his mother, unfolds with shattering power; we are helplessly carried along with Oedipus towards the final, horrific truth.” – Goodreads

TUITION: $25, includes a copy of the book
