Plutarch’s opportune depiction of the statue of Julius Caesar’s enemy presiding over his death in a picture of fitting retribution is a bit too conveniently symbolic to fully believe the accuracy of his biography. Pompey and Caesar were bound to be rivals eventually due to their positions in the political schema of the time, and this was delayed only by their coalition with Crassus to form the First Triumvirate as well as Pompey’s marriage to Caesar’s daughter, Julia. However, after the deaths of both Julia and Crassus, nothing was left to veil the inevitable friction between the two men.

In saying this, Brutus believes that once Caesar is declared dictator, he will turn his back to all of those who helped him reach

In the play Oedipus Tyrannos by Sophocles, there are many instances in which Oedipus breaks the law, and commits awful crimes. After carful considerations of all his actions, we conclude that Oedipus was not guilty. To begin, it is evident that Oedipus’ story is not something that would occur frequently, and therefore can be considered an extenuating circumstance.

Furthermore, it was mentioned many times that Oedipus was fated to commit these crimes and actions, indicating that he had little to no control over whether the action or crime occurred.
