Sixth Form Classical Civilisation pupils were very pleased to welcome Professor Richard Rutherford of Christ Church, Oxford. Professor.Professor Richard Rutherford of Christ Church, Oxford, a renowned expert on Greek Tragedy, delivered a fascinating talk on the style and language of Greek Tragedy. He focused on Sophocles’ Oedipus Tyrannus and demonstrated how Sophocles’ distorted use of language, that often lacks grammatical clarity, mirrors the incestuous and polluted world in which Oedipus and his”motherwho was no mother” cohabit. Simply brilliant.
