Scholars have been seeking to understand Sophocles? 'Oedipus at Colonus' for over two millennia. The roots of this long tradition of the play?s interpretation lie in Hellenistic Alexandria, and are now represented mainly by a series of notes that have survived in the margins of medieval manuscripts. The book offers an introduction and an authoritative new critical text, which is accompanied by a detailed apparatus criticus.
