One of the most famous poets from classical antiquity, Sophocles was one of three important ancient Greek tragedians, the others being Aeschylus and Euripides. Writing during the 5th century BC, Sophocles created some one hundred and twenty three plays during his lifetime, of which only seven have survived in their entirety. Included in this edition are those seven complete plays, as translated by Lewis Campbell and include the following: Antigone, Aias (Ajax), Oedipus the King, Electra, The Trachinian Maidens (The Trachiniae), Philoctetes, and Oedipus at Colonus. These classic tragedies are essential reading and their influence on modern literature and drama is a profound one.

To be perfectly honest, the only play I've read of Sophocles' is Antigone, since that was the only play we were required to read.

The last lines of AntigoneCHORUS: Where wisdom is, there happiness will crown A piety that nothing will corrode But high and mighty words and ways Are flogged to humbleness, till age, Beaten to its knees, at last is wise.
