Reading post #2

Having finished Oedipus the King by Sophocles, I can only say that it was quite an educative read, even if it might not have been very enjoyable (well, such is the way of compulsory reads) mostly because I think plays are rather dull on paper.

Oedipus deals with the subject of incest in the typical Greek tragedy way: everyone is either killed, of miserable with guilt.

In other news, a few days back I noticed Hesse’s Demian in my bookshelf (honest, I hadn’t seen it there before) and now I really, really want to read it. Well, maybe after I finish most of what I have unread right now…
