Complex Oedipus: an Introductory Lecture on Greek Tragedy

Seward Park Library

192 East Broadway
New York, NY 10002

For millennia, Greek tragedy has enthralled audiences, from intellectuals like Freud to that of the general public. This lecture will primarily draw from Socphocles' Oedipus Rex as a springboard for discussing Greek Tragedy in general-what sort of cultural climate allowed for the creation of tragedy in democratic Athens? What are its major themes? What relevance does tragedy hold for our world today?
