The Oedipus Plays of Sophocles: Oedipus the King, Oedipus at Colonus & Antigone by Sophocles

I had to read this book for school. I have been dreading reading it for a long time, when I finally got the nerve to start it, it was not as bad as I thought it would be. In the book there are three plays that are all centered around Oedipus. The first play is about Oedipus and a prophecy he was told, the second play is about the aftermath of the prophecy and the third play his is about his daughter and what happens to her after everything has happened. I found the first play to be easy and fast to read, as the book continued on, I found the next two plays harder. Although I never would have read it if it where not for school, I found them to be interesting and the writing had a rhythm to it. I recommend this book to people who like to read Shakespeare.
