This study group will read aloud and discuss the three Theban plays of Sophocles: OEDIPUS REX, OEDIPUS AT COLONUS, and ANTIGONE. We will get to know something about the Sophoclean hero, who demonstrates, as Bernard Knox has put it, “that man’s keenest insight is blindness, his highest knowledge ignorance, his soaring confidence and hope an illusion.” In addition to reading, we will view independently The Gospel at Colonus, plus excerpts from film treatments of Oedipus Rex and Antigone. Required text: Robert Fagles, Sophocles: The Three Theban Plays

Instructor Marilyn Scott will lead this study group on Wednesdays from
September 23 through October 28 from 1-3 p.m. “Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.
