Did Oedipus Escape His Fate

98 Words1 Page
Oedipus defeated the Sphinx and gained a city, so of course he thought very highly of himself. But, little did he know that his pride and anger would end up dooming him, forcing him to realize that he did not escape his fate. With having pride you believe in yourself a little too much, thinking that you can do anything. You began to think of yourself as a GOD, rather than someone who is able to perform a task better than the next. You will never have a clear vision of what is really in front of you.
