Oedipus at Colonus

Oedipus at Colonus - Sophocles, Eamon Grennan, Rachel Kitzinger Superior to Oedipus the King. It is more complex and interestingly at times undermines the idea that Oedipus fatal flaw is sufficient to justify the treatment by the Gods. It does not have quite the emotional intensity of Oedipus the King.

The language is beautiful and it is both later and more sophisticated than Oedipus the King.
