Title: Electra
Issue Date: 30-Jul-1987
Abstract: Electra or Elektra is a Greek tragic play by Sophocles. Its date is not known, but various stylistic similarities with the Philoctetes (409 BC) and the Oedipus at Colonus (401 BC) lead scholars to suppose that it was written towards the end of Sophocles' career. It is based around the character of Electra, and the vengeance that she and her brother Orestes take on their mother Clytaemnestra and step father Aegisthus.
