Oedipus at Colonus is one of the three Theban plays of the Athenian tragedian Sophocles. It was written shortly before Sophocles's death in 406 BC and produced by his grandson (also called Sophocles) at the Festival of Dionysus in 401 BC. In the timeline of the plays, the events of Oedipus at Colonus occur after Oedipus Rex and before Antigone; however, it was the last of Sophocles's three Theban plays to be written.

Oedipus the King orOedipus Rex, is an Athenian tragedy by Sophocles that was first performed around 429 B. It is thought to have been renamed Oedipus Tyrannus to distinguish it from Oedipus at Colonus.

Oedipus the King orOedipus Rex, is an Athenian tragedy by Sophocles that was first performed around 429 BC. Originally, to the ancient Greeks, the title was simply Oedipus, as it is referred to by Aristotle in the Poetics. In antiquity, the term "tyrant" referred to a ruler, but it did not necessarily have a negative connotation. Of his three Theban plays that have survived, and that deal with the story of Oedipus, Oedipus the King was the second to be written.

"Spark Notes Oedipus Trilogy" - I only used these "Spark Notes" for the play "Oedipus Rex" (or "Oedipus The King"). They were helpful in distinguishing the climax and bits of dialogue, but it's nothing spectacular. I "sorta" recommend.

Highly recommended for readers seeking to understand, study and appreciate Sophocles' classic and enduring Oedipus plays.

Outstanding.

The only way they could have been better would be to follow the format of Barnes and Noble's "No Fear Shakespeare" series....modern day language on the left page, older language on the right.

But until that comes, this is the way to go....
