Thomas Van Nortwick examines two masterpieces of Greek tragic poetry, Sophocles' Oedipus Rex & Oedipus at Colonus, as symbolic representations of the masculine life cycle

Thomas Van Nortwick examines two masterpieces of Greek tragic poetry, Sophocles' Oedipus Rex & Oedipus at Colonus, as symbolic representations of the masculine life cycle Seen from this perspective, the Greek hero's defiance of limits represents the young man's determination to will himself past the barriers imposed by forces beyond his control - his genetic inheritance, the passage of time, & the larger rhythms of the universe. The parts of himself Oedipus attempts to deny reappear, & his heroic dream of self-creation dissolves in the harsh light of truth, but comes from a new understanding of who he is.

Thomas Van Nortwick's eloquently written book will give the neophyte a clear interpretive path through the epic while reminding experienced readers why they should still care about the Odyssey's unresolved interpretive cruces. -Lillian Doherty, University of Maryland.
