The Classic Club Spin number is #1, which means I get Oedipus at Colonus. This choice is both easy, and not as easy as I expected. Oedipus at Colonus is the second of Sophocles Three Theban plays. Well, how can I read the second play without the first? So I’ve decided that I’m going to read Oedipus Rex, the first play, then Oedipus at Colonus followed by Antigone, the final play.
I am looking forward to it. I spent some time yesterday micro-scheduling my reading (not that I’ll follow it, but at least I’ll know whether I’m ahead or behind, and by how much), so I think this spin will be quite manageable. And, of course, I get to dip into my beloved Greek literature, so for what more could I ask?
