Sophocles (497/6-406 BC) was one of the great tragic poets of Athens, and is considered one of the world’s greatest poets. The subjects of his plays were drawn from mythology and legend. Each play contains at least one heroic figure, a character whose strength, courage, or intelligence exceeds the human norm – but who also has more than ordinary pride and selfassurance. These qualities combine to lead to a tragic end. Hugh Lloyd-Jones gives us, in two volumes, a new translation of the seven surviving plays. Volume II contains ‘Oedipus at Colonus’ (the climax of the fallen hero’s life), ‘Antigone’ (a conflict between public authority and an individual woman’s conscience), ‘The Women of Trachis’ (a fatal attempt by Heracles’ wife to regain her husband’s love), and ‘Philoctetes’ (Odysseus’ intrigue to bring an unwilling hero to the Trojan War).
