From School Library Journal:

Grade 10 Up. An examination of the life and work of Sophocles within the historical context of his culture. The critical essays by 20th-century writers and classical scholars look at Sophocles as a dramatist and examine his writing style, dramatic technique, and specific plays such as Oedipus Rex, Ajax, and Oedipus at Colonus. The significance of his work for contemporary audiences and adaptations to other mediums, such as motion pictures, gospel music, and opera, are also examined. A lengthy biographical sketch, a history of the Greek theater, and an extensive list for further reading help to make this great dramatist more accessible to YAs. A useful tool for teaching literary analysis and criticism.?Cynthia M. Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukee, OR
