Oedipus the KingAuthor:
Pub Date: 1988
Publisher: Oxford Univ Pr
Summary: "Sir Hugh is providing, that is, what Nabokov, in rendering "Eugene Onegin", called a metaphrase--a scrupulous, bare explanation of the original...Plainspun prose indeed, but attractively diaphanous. We can be pretty sure that these were the exact lexical intentions of Sophocles...Reading the seven Sophocles plays in the new Loeb version only confirms his impenetrable greatness."
