In the story of Oedipus Rex Sophocles portrays the main character Oedipus as a good natured person that has bad judgment and frailty Oedipus makes a few bad decisions and is condemned to profound suffering because of his pride I agree with Aristotle that he brings it all on to himself because of his own personal pride One day Oedipus finds out that there is a prophecy that depicts him killing his father and marrying his mother The prophecy may have been proven untrue if he wouldnt have put himself on such a high pedestal It all started one day when he met up with King Laius Seated in it The groom leading the horses Forced me off the road at his lords command But as this charioteer lurched over towards me I struck him in my rageI killed him 12764-772 Oedipus met the King Laius on a bridge and was too proud to let him pass first and then the King pushed him out of the way In a fit of rage Oedipus killed him All the while an old man Teiresias knew that it was King Laius that Oedipus had killed Oedipus didnt even know that it was King Laius that he killed In the future when Teiresias tries to convince Oedipus that he is the killer Oedipus turns him away and calls him a liar and blames it all on him And Ill tell you what I think You planned it you had it done you all but Killed him with your own hands if you had eyes
