Format: Paperback
We are currently studying King Lear in my A level English class and have to use Oedipus Rex as a secondary text. This edition was handed out to us and was better than some of the others I've seen. The play itself was actually quite good; and surprisingly it hadn't gone 'out of date': the story was understandable and you are able to feel the tragedy and anguish of the characters.

By Ivan TOP 500 REVIEWER on 15 Sep 2014
Format: Paperback
This is currently the "approved" text of the board for the exams the house teenager is sitting.
It looks quite approachable, is a decent-enough little book for durability and legibility and thank the stars it's a sensible price for a student text.

Ol' Sophocles needs to work on his humour a bit though. This was not the rip-roaring barrel of laughs I was hoping it was going to be and his idea of "happy ever after" is hardly congruent with mine.

Very cheap, and fast delivery! Ideal for English students like myself who don't have much money to spend on lots of books, so was surprised, thanks :)
