Product Description
Arguably the most famous Greek tragedy of all time, Oedipus Rex, or Oedipus the King, is a fabulous choice for introducing your students to the world of the Greek tragedy. The stomach-twisting plot, heart-wrenching angst, and expected yet unexpected tragedies that occur in this play never fail to baffle, stun, and intrigue young readers. In addition to delivering on drama, shock & awe, and suspense, this play is integral to introducing your students to the literary devices of situational and dramatic irony (which Sophocles practically invented) as well as symbolism.

*Warning: this play (if you have not read it) includes mature content. It is incredibly gruesome, and includes suicide, self-maiming, and incest.

This product includes:
-2 creative writing prompts
-2 expository writing prompts
-1 research writing prompts

If you purchase this product, I would SO appreciate a rating or comment! Thanks!
