    Get this from a library! Oedipus on the road: a novel. [Henry Bauchau; Anne-Marie Glasheen] -- An award-winning Belgian author writes a missing chapter for Sophocles's Oedipus, as the blinded Oedipus endures numerous rites of passage that lead him to spiritual and physical realization. Oedipus at Colonus is set many years after Oedipus the King, and the long-wandering Oedipus has changed his perspective on his exile. First, he has decided that he was not responsible for his fate, though at the end of the previous play Oedipus proudly claimed responsibility for his actions, blinding himself and begging for exile.

    The latest title to join the acclaimed Greek Tragedy in New Translations series, Sophocles' Oedipus at Colonus tells the story of the last day in the life of Oedipus. It was written at the end of the fifth century BCE in Athens, in the final years of the "Golden Age" of Athenian culture, and in the last year of Sophocles' own life/5. Symbols are objects, characters, figures, and colors used to represent abstract ideas or concepts. Oedipus’s Swollen Foot. Oedipus gets his name, as the Corinthian messenger tells us in Oedipus the King, from the fact that he was left in the mountains with his ankles pinned together. Jocasta explains that Laius abandoned him in this state on a barren mountain shortly after he was born.

      The first drama in the Oedipus Trilogy, "Oedipus Rex", is the tragic tale of Oedipus who has accidentally killed his father and married his mother. One of the most widely read of all Greek tragedies, "Oedipus Rex", stands as one of not only the greatest dramas from classical antiquity but as one of the greatest dramas of all time/5(25).   Terrified, Oedipus flees Corinth for Thebes. On the road, at a three way crossroads, he encounters his true father, Laius, as they dispute over which chariot has the right of way. Oedipus throws him to the ground and kills him along with his other attendants, except one who escapes back to Thebes to report on what happened.
