Abstract

The significant import of chthonic elements, especially chthonic deities, in Sophocles' Oedipus Coloneus has been widely noticed and variously discussed. The focus of this discussion traced, however, historical cult and religion without regard to a possible literary aspect. This paper tries to show how Sophocles throughout the play intentionally associates his protagonist with the sphere of the chthonic and dark as a means of creating a symbolic language and as a device of personal characterization.
