Sophocles - Ajax and Electra
This month, we will read two short (but excellent) plays by Sophocles! This will be a unique, side-by-side discussion. Ajax is a Greek tragedy written in the 5th century BC and may be the earliest of Sophocles' seven tragedies to have survived. The play depicts the fate of the warrior Ajax, after the events of the Iliad but before the end of the Trojan War. Electra is set in the city of Argos a few years after the Trojan War, it recounts the tale of Electra and the vengeance that she and her brother Orestes take on their mother Clytemnestra and step father Aegisthus for the murder of their father, Agamemnon.

What we're about

If you're reading this, it's because you're interested in the Great Books, also known as "the classics". Awesome! There is a misconception that the Great Books were written for specialists in philosophy or Ivy League scholars. This is simply not true. For centuries, they instructed everyone, including children.

This group is dedicated to continuing that tradition, and was formed with the idea that everyone can read, interpret, and discuss the Great Books. They cover a wide variety of subjects, including fiction, history, poetry, science, philosophy, politics, economics, religion and ethics. You can see what we're currently reading by checking out the "Featured Meetup" below.

But we don't just meet to discuss books, we have stimulating conversations about life! We talk about everything from good, evil, justice, freedom, love, art, God, man, beauty, truth, war and peace.
