Oedipus Essay Research Paper The Excruciating Truth

Oedipus Essay, Research Paper

The Excruciating Truth of Oedipus Oedipus is a man of

integrity and passion whose goal in life was to seek the raw

truth. Throughout the story, he constantly tried to obtain that

goal, but at times he tried to swallow his tongue because he

sometimes had the inclination way down in his gut, he might

be a killer. Worse then the fate of a killer, would be the

reality of being married to his mother. If fate/destiny

determines everything a person will do before they are born,

as it suggests by the play, then what crime is Oedipus guilty

of? I will answer that, MURDER. In my mind, when a

person describes a pacific place, time, and event, and I was

there, I would probably remember. ?A land called Phocis, at

a spot where the road from Delphi meets the road from

Daulia. (Sophocles 41)? And with this, it really narrows it

down to either knowing that you were a murderer, or

wanting to deny being a murder. On the other hand, for a

short time after he killed his father, Laius, I do not believe

that he knew he was marrying his mother or that he killed his

father. As a newborn, he was brought up by the king and

queen of Cornith, where he was told by the Oracle of

Delphi, that he would someday kill his father and marry his

mother. Therefore, after this, he led himself to believe that he

would never return to this town due to the fact of killing his

father, but most of all, marring his mother. At this point, he

was thinking just like any other human. Get out. Leeman 2

?Indeed I shall. I do. I vent it all on you. Yes, you, you

planned this thing, and I suspect you of the very murder

even, all but the actual stroke. And if you had your eyes I?d

say you played the chief part to. (sophocles 20.)? And with

this I come to a conclusion that he is not a cold-blooded

murder, but a murder. He did a great cover up job, and do

to the fact that he married his mother, shows that he didn?t

know that he killed his father at first, or did he?
