More About Sophocles

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Sophocleswas born at Colonus, just outside Athens, in 496 BC, and lived ninety years. His long life spanned the rise and decline of the Athenian Empire; he was a friend of Pericles, and though not an active politician he held several public offices, both military and civil. The leader of a literary circle and friend of Herodotus, he was interested in poetic theory as well as practice, and he wrote a prose treatiseOn the Chorus. He seems to have been content to spend all his life at Athens, and is said to have refused several invitations to royal courts.Sophocles first won a prize for tragic drama in 468, defeating the veteran Aeschylus. He wrote over a hundred plays for the Athenian theater, and is said to have come first in twenty-four contests. Only seven of his tragedies are now extant, these beingAjax, Antigone, Oedipus the King, Women of Trachis, Electra, Philoctetes, and the posthumousOedipus at Colonus. A substantial part ofThe Searches, a satyr play, was recovered from papyri in Egypt in modern times. Fragments of other plays remain, showing that he drew on a wide range of themes; he also introduced the innovation of a third actor in his tragedies. He died in 406 BC.
Robert Fagles(1933-2008) was Arthur W. Marks 19 Professor of Comparative Literature, Emeritus, at Princeton University. He was the recipient of the 1997 PEN/Ralph Manheim Medal for Translation and a 1996 Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. His translations include Sophocles sThree Theban Plays, Aeschylus sOresteia(nominated for a National Book Award), Homer sIliad(winner of the 1991 Harold Morton Landon Translation Award by The Academy of American Poets), Homer sOdyssey, and Virgil'sAeneid.
Bernard Knox(1914-2010) was Director Emeritus of Harvard s Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington, D.C. He taught at Yale University for many years. Among his numerous honors are awards from the National Institute of Arts and Letters and the National Endowment for the Humanities. His works includeThe Heroic Temper: Studies in Sophoclean Tragedy, Oedipus at Thebes: Sophocles Tragic Hero and His TimeandEssays Ancient and Modern(awarded the 1989 PEN/Spielvogel-Diamonstein Award)."
