He suspects Creon of murder, and concludes that the prophet had colluded with Creon in an attempt to undermine him. So then they argue vehemently and eventually Oedipus dismisses Tiresias. However, when he leaves, he continues muttering: murderer is right here before him - a man who kill his father and marry his mother, a man who can see now but will leave in blindness in the future. Then Creon enters to face Oedipus's accusations. In spite of Creon’s protestations of innocence, the King
In the story point of view Victor also betrayed God. Victor’s way of grieving his mother’s death is to get obsessed with death and to bring something dead, or rather, a compilation of many dead something’s, back to life. He caught up so much in his ideas and his plans that he forgot about God and the way things should be created so he decided to challenge himself and bring back to life
The whole time in the play you could see the prophecy was coming true. It seemed that he was destined no matter what. Oedipus was cursed from birth to someday marry his mother and to murder his father. This prophecy, as warned by the oracle was going to come true (as written in his fate), no matter what he may have done to avoid it. From the beginning, Oedipus Rex was a baby, Lauis and Jocasta found out from the oracle, that Oedipus Rex was going to kill his father and marry his mother.
They thought that he was too savage like because he exemplified unmerciful behavior. There was even some doubt of his abilities because he was depicted to be on the losing side of the trojan war. Ares is one of the twelve olympians and is the son of Zeus (god of lightning) and Hera (goddess of love and marriage). His father Zeus said to him that he was the god that was the most hateful in his eyes. Anything that was associated with Ares was viewed as a destructive military quality.
Hamlet himself says, "That I essentially am not in madness, but mad in craft." He thought about everything he was doing, and everything he was going to do. Hamlet did in fact act like he was mad, just so he could follow through on his plan to avenge his father's death. Hamlet acted like he was mad because he did not want to outright kill Claudius, because he would probably go to heaven, and Hamlet wanted to make him suffer like Claudius had made his father suffer. Hamlet also knew that he could not go around telling people that Claudius killed his father just because a ghost told him so.
Prince Hamlet seems keen to avenge his father’s death, but throughout the narrative we see Hamlet hesitate to kill Claudius, he may be finding it hard as Claudius is the King and also a relative. The Ghost says he’s going to suffer in Purgatory until Prince Hamlet avenges his death by killing Claudius, as the way he died he didn’t have a chance to confess his sins, so he would go to heaven. “Doomed for a certain
When Oedipus asks why this case was not investigated the people respond that they were too busy trying to solve the sphinx’s riddle. Oedipus vows that no matter what the cost is, he will get to the bottom of it, both because it harmed Thebes and Laius was noble and loyal. Oedipus calls upon Teiresias, the blind prophet, and forces him to reveal what he knows of the murder. Teiresias reluctantly tells Oedipus that he killed his father and sleeps with his mother. Oedipus accuses him of lying on Creons behalf so Creon could kill Oedipus and take the throne.
In my opinion I think that fate is the most dominant worldview. In this essay I will describe why I think why fate is dominant. There are many examples that show how the fate worldview is present. One of them is where Laius goes to a place to hear his prophecy and he was told that his son was going to kill him, and even though he abandoned his son on the top of a mountain, without knowing his son did kill him and married jocoausta his mother. That was another example of how fate is present because the oracle also said that Oedipus was going to marry his mother.
Hamlet’s father tells him that he must get revenge on his uncle for him; he wants Hamlet to kill Claudius. Hamlet promises his beloved father that he will do whatever it takes to make sure Claudius lives no more, but as he will find out it is not as easy as it seems. Many philosophers have come up with different reasons to why they think that the main character, Hamlet, delays in killing Claudius. S. T. Coleridge came up with the solution that Hamlet was incapable of killing Claudius because he thought about the action too much (Coleridge). Hamlet over analyzed everything he did from the time he first saw his father’s ghost, until the time he had finally got around to doing he deed he promised his father.
Chandler Weisz Ms. Golden Oct 7, 2014 In Oedipus Rex, Sophocles asks a question that is still asked today: is it free will or fate that controls ones destiny. Both freewill and fate are themes in the tragedy, but themes to which one caused the horrible doings of Oedipus. Oedipus fate lies in the hands of the gods, but on the other hand he still has some freewill. It was Oedipus’s fate to kill his father through marry, his mother but it is his actions through free will that he does in Thebes. Sophocles uses Oedipus to show fate and freewill together; determine what to convey the idea that either way, life will play out through ones Fate or free will and or maybe both, and lead one to what life has in-store for him or her.
