Pride often leads to someone’s downfall - this idea has been developed from the playwright “Oedipus the king” through Rey’s interactive oral presentation. He discussed that Oedipus’ excessive pride over his knowledge due to solving riddles allows him to not listen to others including the respected Prophet , his dear relative Kreon - he seldom pays heed to them and decides to pursue further for searching the predecessor’s murderer .

From the presentation it has been evident that Oedipus was not smart enough to realize that the path he set for himself, will eventually bring nothing but pain. Oedipus guaranteed to the citizens of Thebes that he will definitely cooperate, and banish

So much for heroism. So much for the harvest-virgin. So much, also, for the alternative visions of blind old poets and dragons. Grendel, p. 90 Unferth's failure to prove his heroic ideal a reality puts Grendel in an even more cynical mood than before. He considers the Scyldings' tales of amazing feats and superhuman bravery to be little more than fables, barely fit for little children.
Another situation, where Chris 's hamartia plays a role in his moral downfall, is when he comes to a conclusion that living a life with Chloe would best benefit him, since she is wealthy and loves him dearly.

Oedipus gets angry because Tiresias wIll not reveal the murderer of Laius. It is very clever to use this scene to show Oedipus’s temper because this side of him has not been shown. If they did not show this scene the audience/reader may not believe Oedipus is capable of the murders at the crossroads. It’s like Tiresias makes Oedipus angry on purpose so the audience/reader figures out the truth without him actually saying it. W. J. Verdenius quotes, “Tiresias is at once a traditionalist and an exceedingly clever man.” Tiresias’ ironic behavior and attitude towards revealing prophecy makes him symbolic to the

Despite the three students’ propensity to lie, cheat, and fly under the radar of the law, based on Grisham’s enthralling storyline and character development, you still feel this compulsion to root for their success. Without reading The Rooster Bar, the actions of Matt, Todd, and Lola may seem reprehensible at the onset, but Grisham creates a Robin Hood-esque dilemma. It is illegal, not to mention unethical, to pull a fast one over corporations, but you have to imagine that it would feel hella good along the way. The three friends commit illegal acts, but they do so for the sake of rebellion against Foggy Bottom. Matt, Todd, and Zola feel suffocated by the debt and the control corporate giants hold over their future, an idea many Americans can relate to some extent with.
