Oedipus at Colonus is the climax of Sophocles' masterpiece "Theban Cycle." Oedipus the King ended when Oedipus, who had been distraught at discovering that it was he who murdered his father and unknowingly married his mother, had blinded himself. Disgraced, he wanders throughout Greece with his daughter, Antigone. In Oedipus at Colonus, Oedipus regains his dignity and heroic stature. As his final resting place is sought, he is vied for as a talisman and protector by his son and the kings of Athens and Thebes.
