Synopsis

Oedipus Rex Sophocles by Prof. Harold Bloom

Written by Sophocles around 425 BCE, Oedipus Rex, or Oedipus the King is a classic Greek tragedy in that it depicts the search for self-understanding, and the struggle between man and fate. The story forms the foundation for the symbolic conflict between fathers and sons. Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations offers a range of salient critical viewpoints on this, one of history's most important plays. Thoughtful analyses are supplemented by features that make this resource ideal for those preparing in-depth research papers.

Reviews

Each essay is well-defined and laboriously researched, and each opinion is defended within its context...The book is a useful tool for students needing to examine the themes and context of Tolkien's work.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
