Probably, his place of birth is in Attica. He comes from a rather wealthy family. His father, Sophillus, was a rich member of the rural deme small community of Colonus Hippius. Some believe that Sophillus had been a carpenter, smith, or a sword ndash; maker and he probably owned an "armaments business" for which many carpenters and smiths had worked. The village, Colonus, latter to become a setting for Sophoclesrsquo; plays, was situated north-west of Athens, and about a mile distant from the city. White Colonus was the place for his childhood, and he later remembered his beautiful boyhood in works, such as Oedipus Coloneus. Dudley Fitts , a renowned poet, critic and translator, authored and translated over 20 books.

I cannot remember at this moment what motivated me to read or reread these plays; something else I read, no doubt. I remember Greek tragic drama very fondly from high school, where Mrs. Smith inspired me in many of my present-day literary loves hello, Hemingway and Homer. This triptych concerns the mythic curse on the House of Thebes, which I will retell quickly in my own words. Ahead: spoilers. Oedipus was both to the Theban King Laius and Queen Jocasta, but upon his birth, an oracle prophesied that this baby boy would grow up to murder his father and marry his mother.
