Sophocles: Oedipus Tyrannus (Ancient Greek). v1. 7 April 2011

I wanted a Kindle version of Oedipus Tyrannus in ancient Greek for my Sophocles class, but couldn't find one.

So I made my own.

I used sources from the Perseus Project and figured out how to display line numbers on the Kindle (using tables).

I doubt many people want to read Ancient Greek texts on a Kindle, but this seemed like the best place to share it on the off chance someone else could benefit from my work.

Sounds like an excellent reason to produce a Kindle version of any book. While ancient Greek is, well, 'Greek to me', I can understand wanting a book that isn't out as a Kindle and deciding to make one since it either doesn't exist, is impossible to find, or (at least with the old PD books) a publisher wants more than a person wants to spend to get their version. That's one reason I like Mobileread so much. You can find good quality PD books without spending a lot of $ to get them.
