Sometimes life s a real bitch Fate is unavoidable in ancient Greek Tragedy Trying to avoid it will only lead to it and doing nothing will lead you there too So if a God tells you that you will die at the hands of your son and that he will then go on to steal your wife you d best do nothing because it s going to happen anyway Any preventative action you take will only lead to the same ending So you re pretty much screwed You might as well lie down and accept it The God s are mean But nope if you re like the King of Thebes you ll leave your infant son for dead instead Poor Oedipus He really didn t have much chance in life He could do nothing to intervene with his own destiny mainly because his tragic flaw is his lack of awareness about his true origins He hears a rumour of the prophecy told to his farther so he endeavours to stay away from him But in doing so he is pushed ever closer to his real farther That s the problem with being abandoned at birth you just don t know who is who in the world There s some irony in this somewhere Indeed it suggests that no free will exists at all because any exertions of the supposed free will lead to the predetermined fate So every action has been accounted for already The intended audience may have been aware of these powers but Oedipus and his farther were hapless in their wake They had to both learn the hard way Oedipus had to recognise it and in the process he shattered his life it made him tear out his very eyes Now that s real grief There s no wonder Aristotle made this his model for the perfect play because this is masterfulAristotle s theory can be used to assist the reader in understanding how the plot contributes to the tragedy I couldn t have read tragedy without it The tragedy is created in part by the complexity of its plot which leads towards the catharsis According to Aristotle s Poetics the complexity of the plot is established through reversal recognition and suffering A simple plot will only establish one of these therefore it will have a limited catharsis The reversal peritpeteia is the change of a state of affairs to its opposite such as the reversal of Oedipus identity The recognition anaghorsis is achieved through the acuiring of knowledge like the knowledge Oedipus gains of his birth Aristotle argues that an effective plot has its anaghorisis bound up with the peritpeteia This is because it carries with it pity or fear such as these following lines O god All come true all busting to lightO light now let me look my last on youI stand revealed at last Lines 1305 9I hope I didn t lose anyone or bore them to death with my summary of Poetics The structure is the key it is everything in delivering the plot If in the cathartic moment the action can evoke suffering through a combination of a reversal of circumstances during a brutally stark recognition then the ultimate delivery of pity and fear will be achieved Such is the case with Oedipus Oedipus s hamartia his tragic flaw at the core of his being is his ignorance and when the veil is lifted he realises the tragedy of the situation he realises all too late that fate is unshakable and unconuerable He has unknowingly committed incest with his mother and murdered his farther so like I said life is a real bitch

Read & Download Οἰδίπους Τύραννος 104 What man wins happiness than just its shape and the ruin when that shape collapsesSophocles' Oedipus Rex has never been surpassed for the raw and terrible power with which its hero struggles to answer the eternal uestion Who am I The play a story of a king who acting entirel. Look and learn all citizens of Thebes This is OedipusHe who read the famous riddle and we hailed chief of menAll envied his power glory and good fortuneNow upon his head the sea of disaster crashes downMortality is man s burden Keep your eyes fixed on your last dayCall no man happy until he reaches it and finds rest from suffering I believe that in one way or another everyone at least to some extent has heard of the story of Oedipus and Jocasta It s one of those tales that s been on our collective consciousness forever even though we may not even be able to assertively answer about its origins The same might be said for example of Odysseus and Don uixote they ve been so used and re used adapted and re adapted throughout so many generations and in so many different formats that one might as well state they were simply born within us for they re public and common knowledge I for one believed Oedipus and Jocasta s tale came from the Bible As I was never a religious person and therefore never payed much attention to it and unfortunately never decently studied Greek mythology I used to unconsciously attribute to the Bible the origins of all stories which seemed to me as too ancient to properly date I m terribly sorry and embarrassed about that Sophocles I stand corrected nowEvery time I read an ancient text I recurrently find myself to blame because of the same mistake being surprised by its uality despite being written so long ago It turns out and I agree with an analysis I ve read somewhere that states that unlike science there is no progress no discovery in art An artist while he creates is not helped by the efforts of all the others like scientists are and depends upon his own individual truths The ancient art is in no way a primitive version of the art created by our contemporaries So it should not be astonishing to me that a text written thousands of years ago possesses the same ualities or refinement of awarded pieces that only now cracked their fifty years of age markPutting the story itself a little aside it s precisely this refinement this brilliance in the construction of the narrative that impressed me so much The pace the development of the action and disentanglement of this intricate plot was written so masterfully that it reuires little investigation in discovering the reasons why it became so influential to the subseuent generations Now I m not knowledgeable enough to affirm that Sophocles himself wasn t influenced by other works that preceded him so I m not claiming unprecedented originality to his name here but merely talent in using the most appropriate techniues to write so many wondrous predicates into this marvelous play The ability with which he created sustained and solved the various mysteries that surround this classical tragedy is very remarkable as well as a striking mixture of pity and horror that the themes developed here successfully imposes on the readerThemes such as fate free will interference in human life by the Gods for some that hasn t changed much has it and its inflexible exploration of human nature and suffering are skillfully written in the form of intense dialogues and shocking revelations that could even prove too disturbing had not been Sophocles accurate treatment much like the reader likely pities Phedre s actions instead of automatically blaming her for her fate The ever so mesmerizing battle between destiny and logical conseuences also plays a big role here does fate completely control Oedipus s actions is it all predetermined or is he simply a victim of his own doings even if unknowinglyOedipus Rex also known as Oedipus the King and Oedipus Tyrannus tells the story of Oedipus a man that s respected and loved in Thebas where he is King after solving the riddle of the Sphinx and marrying Jocasta the widow of the previous king After a plague threatens his kingdom he is begged by a chorus of Thebans for help and Oedipus sends for an oracle in order to find some guidance As it turns out Tiresias the blind prophet believes the King is the only one to blame for his malady At first outraged and because of it incensed into proving his innocence he starts connecting the clues that he receives from various bits of information gathered by different sources view spoilerAs it turns out Oedipus after leaving his home in Corinth due to a prophecy which stated he would murder his father and sleep with his mother entered a fight with some men at a crossroads and ended up killing them before arriving in Thebes One of these men was Laius Jocasta s husband and previous King In order to escape the prophecy Oedipus fell into it as he was Laius s son who was sent away to be killed many years ago exactly because he received an oracle that he would be murdered by his own son Oedipus s life ended up being spared and unknown to him he was adopted by the King of Corinth Now it was clear to him that besides murdering his father he has slept with his own mother and fathered children that were also his brothers and sisters Jocasta upon finding out this complex imbroglio can t deal with the unimaginable situation and kills herself hide
