Written just before the death of &&LSTRONG&&RSophocles&&L/B&&R, &&LI&&ROedipus at Colonus&&L/I&&R features a more subdued tone as the blind, exiled king reflects on his passing from this world. &&LI&&RAntigone&&L/I&&R, the earliest written of the three, presents the powerful story of the iron-willed daughter of Oedipus as she takes a fatal stand against her uncle Creon, the new ruler of Thebes.
