Oedipus was a M*F*

So I’m teaching this course on playreading – kind of an intro to drama, bit of theatrical history, literary analysis, production, yada, yada, yada. So naturally, we’ve started with Agamemnon and Oedipus.
What is it with these people? If they’re not killing each other, they’re eating each other’s children, baked in a pie. Alternatively, they’re boffing swans, bulls, shafts of golden light, each other, each other’s spouses…
Of course, the real question is, can I justifiably use the title of this post in the classroom?
