Sophocles innovative plays transformed Greek myths into dramas featuring complex human characters, through which he explored profound moral issues. Electra portrays the grief of a young woman for her father Agamemnon, who has been killed by her mother s lover. Aeschylus and Euripides also dramatized this story, but the objectivity and humanity of Sophocles version provides a new perspective. Depicting the fall of a great hero, Ajax examines the enigma of power and weakness combined in one being, while the Women of Trachis portrays the tragic love and error of Heracles deserted wife Deianeira, and Philoctetes deals with the conflict between physical force and moral strength.
