Oedipus Rex

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sA1_QZxvRyo

I thought this was pretty good and accurate, although I didn't finish watching it because I don't want to ruin the play for myself. In all honesty, it does trivialize Oedipus Rex a little bit, but I still think it's interesting and pretty well made. Check it out sometime next week after we finish reading the play!

To me, this video kind of ruins it. Even reading plays makes them lose a lot of effect. Although it is a good summary, it leaves out a lot of what makes reading it so interesting in good. Though, it'd be nice if I wanted to remember what the play was about.

I agree with Parker. This video is a good quick summary but it's impossible for one to get the full effect of the tragedy just by simply watching this video. It's cute though.

There are so many videos that trivialize the story of oedipus. I saw a video where it was like stick figure pictures of the story. I think its funny but they do help to understand the story better
