Oedipus Tyrannus
 

The play is about revealing the potential horrors beneath the surface- beauty of life, as of art, illusion and reality. It is also a meto-tragedy. 

The proportional relations between tragedy, however, differs from the ancient to the modern writer. Whereas Shakespeare or Pirandello uses the awareness of illusion to explore theatricality, Sophocles uses theatricality to explore the moral, religious and metaphysical questions, raised by the suffering of Oedipus.
