Synopsis

Cambridge Wizard Student Guide Oedipus Rex by Kilian McNamara

Sophocles is considered one of the greatest writers of the ancient world and Oedipus Rex, his masterpiece, is the classic Greek tragedy. In this study guide, an experienced teacher offers background on the playwright and his world, including the mysteries of Greek theatre, explaining in everyday terms what students need to know to make sense of this famous text. The guide then goes through the play, scene by scene, drawing out its 'subtext' and offering key quotes to use. Also offered are generous notes on the characters, themes, critical assessments of the work, and finally a full length A+ exam essay on the text.
