  1.  Oedipus Trilogy 23 October, 2013 On
    Robert Fitzgerald's translation of Sophocles' play is simple and clear, beautiful and elegant. I read Oedipus Rex in high school and Antigone in college and enjoyed both. It took me a while to get to the play that falls between the two in plot and time frame, but it's definitely worth the read. It clarifies the events in Antigone, since the events that occur directly precede the beginning of Antigone. It also continues the themes that Oedipus Rex hints at, and it concludes Oedipus's story very beautifully.
    Obviously, this play's religious background is in the context of Greek pantheism. However, as a Christian, I can't help but relate to the power of God and to the idea that He is always in control. We as humans make mistakes, and we can't blame the spiritual powers, good or evil, for our every sin. Yet, we are not the end-all, be-all. There is more to existence than our being. To paraphrase Shakespeare, "There are more things in heaven and on earth than are dreamt of in our philosophy." Sometimes, we go about life and forget that there is more than what we see, and Oedipus at Colonus reminds us of that.
    I recommend this play to anybody who enjoyed one or both of the other parts of the trilogy, to lovers of Greek drama, to fans of Sophocles, and to believers in God and His power and love.
