Oedipus the King, Freud and Modern Connections

Generally, students do not like to hear Freud's theory on the Oedipus (Oedipal) Complex. They are surprised by his assertions and would rather defend Oedipus's innocence than accept his sexual "love" for his mother. There are a number of scholarly and student-friendly resources for Oedipus the King; here, you will find many that I found successful in teaching the play.
