Oedipus at Colonus by Sophocles ( Book )
8 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Sophocles' Oedipus at Colonus tells the story of the last day in the life of Oedipus. It was written at the end of the fifth century BCE in Athens, in the final years of the "Golden Age" of Athenian culture, and in the last year of Sophocles' own life. At the center of the play is the mysterious transformation of Oedipus from an old and blind beggar, totally dependent on his daughters, to the man who rises from his seat and, without help, leads everyone to the place where he is destined to die. In the background of this transformation stands the grove of the Furies, the sacred place of the implacable goddesses who pursue the violators of blood relationships. Although Oedipus, who killed his father and married his mother, is an obvious target of the Furies' vengeance, he enters their grove at the beginning of the play, sure that it is the resting place Apollo has predicted for him. The reversals and paradoxes in the play speak to the struggle that Oedipus' life and the action of the play bring vividly before us: how do we as humans, subject to constant change, find stable ground on which to stand and define our moral lives? Sophocles offers his play as a witness to the remarkable human capacity to persevere in this struggle."--BOOK JACKET
Prometheus bound by Aeschylus ( Book )

One of the greatest of the classical Greek dramas, based on the Greek legend of the Titan demi-god who, against the will of Zeus, stole fire from the gods for the benefit of man. His terrible punishment by Zeus, and his continuing defiance of Zeus in the face of that punishment, remain universal symbols of man's vulnerability in any struggle with the gods

Medea by Euripides ( Book )
6 editions published between 1939 and 2014 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Euripides was one of the most popular and controversial of all the Greek tragedians, and his plays are marked by an independence of thought, ingenious dramatic devices, and a subtle variety of register and mood." "Medea is a story of betrayal and vengeance, and one which gives an excellent example of the prominence and complexity that Euripides gave to his female characters. Medea, wife of Jason, is incensed that her husband would leave her to make a political marriage after the many sacrifices she has made for him. In her wrath, she murders both his new bride and their own children, thus taking her revenge. This new translation does full justice to the lyricism of Euripides' original work, while a new introduction provides a guide to the play, complete with interesting details about the traditions and social issues that influenced Euripides' world."--BOOK JACKET
