More specifically, Oedipus faced an unknown truth, a task to save his people, and a moment of grief to represent is blind ending. Throughout the events he represented self-justice and an idea that the people were eventually going to respect and understand. As a lifetime of searching became a norm for Oedipus he discovered such a truth that hurt his soul and caused his wife and mother to kill themself. Although obtaining this notion, the king himself took risks that were greatly empowering and laborious. The whirlwind of emotions produced by each of the characters allowed justice to become more real and visual as the end became more authentic than ever before.
So when he starts telling him the truth Oedipus gets even more mad and taunts Tiresias about being blind. Then Oedipus accuses Ceron of being the murderer and that he is just trying to become king. If it was not for Oedipus’s temper he would not have killed king Laius and his men. Oedipus’s temper had a great contribution to his downfall and later his blindness. Oedipus’s pride also was a large contribution to his downfall.
The character of Oedipus is ruled by fate. The tragic hero is unable to escape his fate that was spoken over his life to happen. Even though Oedipus has chosen his own actions, the consequences he is sure to face have become undeniable and cannot be changed. Due to the flaws in his character, the king will fall from the good graces of those who once believed in him. In the tragedy “Oedipus the King” it begins with Oedipus showing his flaw of judgement when disregarding Teiresias warning.
Macbeth wanted to make sure that his throne was secured, so he murder his friend. That will help him keep the secret forever. In additional of the Macbeth persuade toward the murder is “your patience so predominant in your nature that you can let this go? Are you gospeled to pay for this good man and for his issue, whose heavy hand has bowed you to the grave and beggars your forever?”(3.1.95). This prove that when Macbeth has his throne he did not enjoy with his power life but he has worry that Banquo will find out Macbeth’s wicked action.
Throughout the tragedy of Oedipus the King, Oedipus displays his imperfectly noble being for all to see. While Oedipus had saved the Thebans from the Sphinx’s riddle, Oedipus’s nobel pride and anger lead to his destruction as he attempted to find Laios’s murderer. In his mistreatment of Teiresias, and his false allegations towards Creon being a usurper, Oedipus shows his imperfectly noble character as he foolishly attempts to fight fate and the gods will. Oedipus and his imperfectly noble nature appear again and again as he attempts to solve the murder of the previous King. Oedipus first showed his nature at the beginning of the play, when he first made his proclamation to the people of Thebes, announcing a curse on any person, including
That knowledge enables them to fear the final revelation at the same time that they pity the man whose past is gradually and relentlessly uncovered to him. The plot is thoroughly integrated with the characterization of Oedipus, for it is he who impels the action forward in his concern for Thebes, his personal rashness, and his ignorance of his past. His flaws are a hot temper and impulsiveness, but without those traits his heroic course of self-discovery would never occur. Fate for Sophocles is not something essentially external to human beings but

Dorian however caught up in his vanity, refuses to confess any of his sins. Even after committing the most heinous of acts in murder, Dorian resorts to opium addiction to cure his sole. He wishes to erase the act from his memory rather
A sensible and responsible king, Creon, is a tragic hero because of his power madness, self-righteousness, and ruthlessness. He is the center of the play, which causes events to happen. The first tragic fall that leads Creon to his downfall is his power madness. His power madness fall can be supported by Antigone’s dialogue, “Further: he has the matter so it that anyone who dares attempt the act will die by stoning in the town.” (Antigone 2). The quote means that anyone who didn’t follow Creon’s decree will die.
Generally speaking, in the play "Macbeth" which is written by Shakespear, Macbeth’s tragic downfall is absolutely caused by his own free will.According to his personalities, his original guilty and cruel mind caused him to murder the king.His plan foreshadows his deepest desire and what he will do to reach his goal.Macbeth’s failure is not caused by his fate simply because he has made the final decisions by himself.Without the decisions on his own, Macbeth won’t believe those prophecies or persuasions from others or murder the king. Macbeth’s intent to murder King Duncan comes from himself. “All hail，Macbeth, thou shalt be king hereafter! (1.3.48)”.In this quotation, the third witch is telling the “prophecy” to Macbeth and Macbeth starts to
