I chose this article because of how it displays the moral lesson of the play. This will add more weight to my essay as I will be able to show how the destiny of anyone can’t be controlled. This can only be done by the gods. I will also be able to show fate is stronger than the pride or ego regardless of our societal positions. This is an Academic Essay.

The article provides us with a clear perspective of the Oedipus Rex. The king of the sends Creon who was his brother-in-law to the Plague-struck mysterious city and he comes up with the information that the plague will be uplifted in the condition that the killer of King Laius is brought to justice. The queen doesn’t believe that the murderer Oedipus is the murderer. The tale is confirmed by a messenger putting Jocasta into shame, and she ended up killing herself. This text will help me show
how the royal families might have different views about their history and to show that even a messenger can have a piece of information that ends up changing a tragedy.

The text narrates the vital elements of Oedipus the king. This will help me show clearly that Oedipus has Hamartia the cause of his mysterious fate. I will also be able to demonstrate how proud can lead to failure as the King failed to believe in the Gods while hunting the source of the plague. Then, the king should have analyzed his deeds to identify the cause of the plague.
