I have an almost complete set of Cliffs Notes. I use them to catch students who take short cuts. Sometimes they have interesting discussion questions, which will also reveal students who have read CN instead of the text. --JJM, 10/12/05

Oedipus, the banished king of Greek mythology who killed his father and married his mother, is the subject of Sophocles' Oedipus Trilogy, a series of three tragedies that tell a connected story. Despite their antiquity, these timeless works bring up questions that remain relevant in our society, and their exciting, colorful stories have a universal appeal that still captivates readers.
