The plays of Plautus are the earliest complete works of Latin literature we possess. Plautus adapted for the amusement of Roman audiences the Greek New Comedy of the fourth century.

The Theban plays by Sophocles( Book )

2 editions published between 1947 and 1957 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The legends surrounding the royal house of Thebes inspired Sophocles (496406 BC) to create a powerful trilogy of mankinds struggle against fate. King Oedipus tells of a man who brings pestilence to Thebes for crimes he does not realise he has committed, and then inflicts a brutal punishment upon himself. With profound insights into the human condition, it is a devastating portrayal of a ruler brought down by his own oath. Oedipus at Colonus provides a fitting conclusion to the life of the aged and blinded king, while Antigone depicts the fall of the next generation, through the conflict between a young woman ruled by her conscience and a king too confident in his own authority
