Sophocles is awesome

So I have just finished reading the Sophoclean tragedies of Oedipus the 3rd time through. Honestly the first time two times through they didn't really mean anything to me. Probably due to the setting in which or the speed at which I read them. But this 3rd time, the story just really came to life for me. I absolutely love these plays. I think I may have actually cried a few times while reading them. I think I'm going to be a lifelong fan of Sophocles now. I don't think I've encountered any other plays written as powerfully as these. I hope I find time in life to read these again some time soon.
