Who was Sophocles?

by Christos Polydorou

Sophocles was an
Ancient Greek playwright
who wrote tragic plays
like Electra and Oedipus Rex. Before
the Ancient city of Athens, there
were no such things
as tragic plays. Did not tragedies /
occur in the Bible? Yes, but
even though the events
recorded in the Bible occur
prior to Ancient Greece, they
were written, after
Ancient Greece occurred. That
doesn’t seem right. Silence. Silence?
Pause. When
and where did tragedies occur? In
human dramatizations did tragedies occur.
Why do we lash out each other,
when we get too close? The
reason is
mainly territorial.
