thinking about what affection for others means these days. One example might be the way Antigone behaves, though she is usually referred as most controversial figure to stand up resolutely and speak the truth to power. Her affection toward her old father Oedipus in the first scene of 'Oedipus at Colonus' unsurpassably touches me. When they first arrive in an unknown village Colonus, where Oedipus will make his last journey, Antigone tries to tell how much the world has been celebrating the old man who has lost the kingdom, human dignity, and eyesight by  describing the new circumstances - saying the names of birds and trees. 「町を囲む塔と城壁は、見たところ、遠くにございます。この土地は明らかに、尊いところ、桂、オリーヴ、葡萄の木が生い繁り、その中ではナィティンゲールが飛び交うて、うるわしい音をひびかせている。さあ、この天然石にお坐りなさいませ。」(ソポクレス, 高津春繁訳「コロノスのオイディプス」岩波文庫, 1973, p. 9.)

UPDATE now I've finished reading: I feel bad because apaz it was his last play and he was 89 when he wrote it.  He Obvs had death on his mind.  There's a lot of beauty in it and it's sweet to have closure on his life following the horrors of Oedipus Rex.

“I was born to join in love, not hate—that is my nature.”
'An Introduction to Classic Studies: From Epic Poetry to Dramatic Poetry' by Masaaki Kubo, an 88-year-old emeritus professor of Tokyo University, was reissued. Needless to say, the expert has been leading the field in Japan for decades, and this particular book clarifies the birth of tragedy based on the distinction between divine providence and human intelligence in ancient Greek. I was fascinated by his special lecture at Seijo University last year; he spoke of the notion of democracy in 'Oedipus at Colonus' and Antigone's affectionate nobleness.

Raining at intermission ☔️
Sometimes I go to the theater by myself. "For every nation that lives peaceably, another will grow harsh and push its aarogance, put off God and turn to madness. Fear not. God attends to these things slowly; but he attends." #thingsthatmakemehappy #publictheater #maboumines #blindboysofalabama #sophoclesadapted #oedipusatcolonus #gospelatcolonus #mynyc
Today I had the pleasure to see the revival of The Gospel at Colonus, directed by Lee Breuer, with music composed by Bob Telson. The performance is a black #musical version of #Sophocles's #tragedy, #Oedipus at Colonus. The show was originally premiered at #BAM ‘s #NextWaveFestival in 1983, had a run in #Broadway in ‘88, traveled the world and now is produced by The Public Theater. In how many performances of Oedipus the audience danced with the chorus? After the show I had the opportunity to hear amazing stories from the cast about how this production changed peoples lives. Lee Breuer just said that after the show he hopes “there is more love than hate in the world tonight”. #LeeBreuer #thegospelatcolonus #publictheatre #delacortetheater #onassisfoundation #oedipusatcolonus #theaterny #nytheatre #nyc

Wow. “The Gospel at Colonus”, Sophocles’ classic Greek play “Oedipus at Colonus” retold in the context of a black Pentecostal service with a rousing gospel and blues score. Forty powerful voices including the multiple Grammy-winning Blind Boys of Alabama. Love when genres are mashed up creating something completely new and amazing! Everyone was on their feet and Central Park was rocking last night! (And during the breaks, I was getting updates on Serena’s win and Nadal losing the first set 0-6 in his ultimate epic win! Had to do both! 😀) Go see it this week if you can! 🎭🎶👏🏼

And with the reading of 'Oedipus Tyrannos' and 'Oedipus at Colonus', I have finally finished the Theban Plays of Sophocles. ◆ In these two along with 'Antigone', Sophocles traces the saga of a cursed family beginning with the origin of the curse, the continuation of ill fate and its passing from one generation to the other.
◆As Lit students, we are ofcourse familiar with the story of Oedipus so that partly ruined the intent of the overall effect for me, but if I hadn't known, the climax would have blown me away! ◆Bottomline, you cannot change your fate no matter what you do. Whatever is destined to happen, will happen. No one does tragedies better than the Greeks!

Hey everyone! I just completed my perusal of "Oedipus at Colonus," the second of the three Theban plays. It wasn't an easy read but that is mostly due to exhaustion and sometimes, reading classical works makes me soporific during the nighttime. However, after a 15-minute power nap, I persisted and finished the rest of "Oedipus at Colonus." Next time I read Sophocles at night, I'll need to remember caffeine as I am reading. #anactormustread #anactormuststudy #ancientgreece #ancientgreekdrama #caffeineneeded #nightlyreading #oedipus #oedipusatcolonus #playreading #theatre #thechoreofreading #sophocles #threeplays #threethebanplays #twodownonetogo

Oedipus at Colonus was the third play of the Oedipus trilogy written by the great Greek tragedian Sophocles (c. 496 - c. 406 BCE). Although written in the years prior to his death, it would finally be presented by his son Iophon at a dramatic competition in 401 BCE. The play’s sequel Antigone was actually written years earlier in 441 BCE.

Oedipus at Colonus accounts for the final years of the fallen king, 20 years after his exile from Thebes. Blind, weak and dressed in rags, he accepted his fate and wandered from town to town as an outcast accompanied only by his young daughter Antigone. Arriving outside Athens at Colonus, he is befriended by the king of Athens, Theseus, who offers him protection. Oedipus speaks of a prophecy that says whatever city grants him sanctuary will be given special protection. Knowledge of this prophecy comes to the attention of Creon, his brother-in-law, and his son Polyneices who want to take advantage of the blinded king. Both had coldly refused him shelter in the past but now travel to Colonus to offer him sanctuary. •

The play’s sequel Antigone was actually written years earlier in 441 BCE. Oedipus at Colonus accounts for the final years of the fallen king, 20 years after his exile from Thebes. Blind, weak and dressed in rags, he accepted his fate and wandered from town to town as an outcast accompanied only by his young daughter Antigone. Arriving outside Athens at Colonus, he is befriended by the king of Athens, Theseus, who offers him protection. Oedipus speaks of a prophecy that says whatever city grants him sanctuary will be given special protection. Knowledge of this prophecy comes to the attention of Creon, his brother-in-law, and his son Polyneices who want to take advantage of the blinded king. Both had coldly refused him shelter in the past but now travel to Colonus to offer him sanctuary. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • (Article by Donald L.

Time for some Saturday late-night gospel! w/@sisternebraska #avantgospel #oedipusatcolonus
Just finished this read - I had previously read King Oedipus, but had not read Oedipus at Colonus or Antigone. Reading Antigone really makes me want to read Red Rising again... I also included a few quotes I loved from Antigone

희랍극 중에서는 소포클레스의 오이디푸스를 가장 좋아한다.
대개 오이디푸스가 자신의 눈을 찌르는 걸로 끝나는 <오이디푸스왕>을 좋아하고 무대화하지만
나는 그 이후의 이야기인<콜로누스의 오이디푸스>를 가장 좋아한다.
오이디푸스가 그저 진취적이고 열정적으로 살았을 뿐이었음에도 본인의 의지와는 상관없는 신탁과 운명에 의해 삶이 망가진 것 보다도
그 자신조차 스스로를 저주하고 삶을 놓아버리고 싶어하던 순간에 안티고네가 그의 곁을 지키며 그를 보호하고 길잡이가 되어주는 것을 중점적으로 다루기 때문에.
그리고 모든 고통을 견뎌낸 그에게, 그의 시신이 묻히는 땅에는 평안과 축복이 있을 것이라는 신탁이 내려졌기 때문에.

원래도 불운한 편이었지만 올해는 유독 이건 아무리봐도 트루먼쇼 수준의 몰래카메라거나 온 우주가 나서서 방해하는 구나 싶을 만큼 되는 일이 없는 일년이었다. 
줄곧 빡센 삶이었지만 올해는 유난히 이러다 죽는 건 아닐까 죽음의 공포를 느낄 정도의 힘겨운 일년이기도 했다. 
그마저도 화려한 대미를 장식하는 일이 생겨 수습하면서는 이렇게 내내 사사건건 재수없고 괴로울 바에는 그냥 죽는 게 낫지 않을까 싶은 나날이었다.
오이디푸스를 좋아하지만 오이디푸스 같은 삶을 살고 싶다는 뜻은 아니었다.
-
그렇지만 내 의지와 상관없이 오이디푸스 같은 삶을 살아야한다면
그렇다면 이왕이면 <콜로누스의 오이디푸스>가 되었으면 싶다. 
다행히도 눈을 찌르고 나자 안티고네 같은 사람이 하나도 아닌 꽤 많은 분들이
가까이에서 멀리에서 나를 위로해주고 보호해주며 또 때로는 고통에 눈이 멀어 잘못된 길을 선택하려는 나의 갈 길을 다시금 짚어주고 있다.
누군가를 위로하기 위하여 나의 달란트를 쓰고 싶어 시작한 길이었는데
결국은 내가 위로를 받는 길이 되었다.
어차피 이번 생은 내내 이다지도 괴로움과 불운의 연속일 듯 하니 나는 됐고
오이디푸스의 마지막이 그러했듯 나의 여정을 부축하고 위로해주는 분들에게 평안과 축복이 있기를 기도한다.

Οιδίπους επί Κολωνώ / Σοφοκλή «Τα πέρατα της ψυχής δε θα βρεις προχωρώντας, όσο μακριά κι αν σε φέρει ο δρόμος»
Ηράκλειτος
Στην τελευταία τραγωδία του Σοφοκλή, ο Οιδίπους φτάνει στο άλσος του Κολωνού, στις παρυφές της πόλεως των Αθηνών, ζητώντας φιλοξενία – ένας «ξένος», τυφλός και ρακένδυτος μετά από δεκαετή περιπλάνηση. Χρειάζεται έναν τόπο ν’ αναπαυθεί, καθώς διαισθάνεται το τέλος να πλησιάζει. Μόνος συμπαραστάτης του η κόρη-αδελφή του Αντιγόνη. Μετά από διαπραγματεύσεις, του επιτρέπεται να κατοικήσει στα «σύνορα», στο μεταίχμιο νομιμότητας και παρανομίας, ζωής και θανάτου. Μέσα από τις συναντήσεις του με τον Θησέα, τον Κρέοντα, τη μικρότερη κόρη-αδελφή του Ισμήνη και τον γιο-αδελφό του Πολυνείκη κάνει ανασκόπηση της ζωής του και στοχάζεται επάνω στο παράλογο του ανθρώπινου βίου. Σε σκηνοθεσία Σταύρου Τσακίρη, που υιοθετεί εδώ τη φόρμα του αφηγηματικού θεάτρου, ο θίασος εξιστορεί στους θεατές αυτή την ιστορία-«παραβολή», σ’ έναν άδειο χώρο, με ελάχιστα αντικείμενα. Οι ηθοποιοί ενδύονται τους ήρωες, που εμφανίζονται κι εξαφανίζονται σαν οπτασίες του ετοιμοθάνατου Οιδίποδα. Η μουσική, σε σύνθεση Μίνωα Μάτσα, εκτελείται ως παράλληλο κείμενο από τις φωνές των ηθοποιών και δίνει στο θέαμα τον χαρακτήρα ενός επικολυρικού ποιήματος. Στον ομώνυμο ρόλο ο Κώστας Καζάκος.
