About the book:

This volume offers the fruits of Peter Meineck and Paul WoodruffÂs dynamic collaboration on the plays of Sophocles Theban cycle, presenting the translators Oedipus Tyrannus (2000) along with WoodruffÂs Antigone (2001) and a muscular new Oedipus at Colonus by Meineck. Grippingly readable, all three translations combine fidelity to the Greek with concision, clarity, and powerful, hard-edged speech. Each play features foot-of-the-page notes, stage directions, and line numbers to the Greek. WoodruffÂs Introduction discusses the playwright, Athenian theatre and performance, the composition of the plays, and the plots and characters of each; it also offers thoughtful reflections on major critical interpretations of these plays.
