Oedipus Tyrannus is a tragedy by the ancient Greek playwright Sophocles, first performed in about 429 BCE.
It follows the story of King Oedipus of Thebes as he discovers that he has unwittingly killed his own father, Laius, and married his own mother, Jocasta. Over the centuries, it has come to be regarded by many as the Greek tragedy par excellence and certainly as the summit of Sophocles’ achievements.
“How dreadful the knowledge of the truth can be
When there’s no help in truth.”
