Aeschylus’s idea of Prometheus was conflicting to Hesiod, whereby he viewed Prometheus as a god supporting the civilization of mankind.
In many Greek tragedies characters are often seen trying to run away from their fate. In the process, they only end up solidifying it.

Ironically, unlike the previous three plays, this one ended happily and without any casualties. The main event that led to the actions in this play was the fact that Orestes came to Argos to carry out what prophesized to do which was to avenge his father and kill his mother, Clytemnestra. A common theme in these last two plays has been prophecy and the power of the gods had over humans during that time period. If Apollo did not prophesize for Orestes to kill his mother the actions in this play would have been very different. Although most believe that fate is fate and Clytemnestra would have died, either way, the Gods wanted the event to happen one way and the humans during that time had no choice but to obey.

His fate was that one day, he would marry his own mother with whom he would have children, and that his very own hands would be the hands that kill his father. Oedipus did not want this to happen, so he fled the Corinth in hopes that he would never be able to harm those who he loved most.

He was to find the murderer of Laius, and in doing so, he discovered he in fact was the murderer. Oedipus had cursed himself in ignorance, he acknowledges the fact that he is guilty, “no man but I can bear my evil

The person to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s death is Friar Laurence because he kept their secret and helped them be together. He was also the one who married them in hopes of ending the feud between the Capulets and Montagues. He also made many mistakes that caused his plan for Romeo and Juliet to go wrong. He trusted someone to deliver a note of great importance to Romeo, gave potion to Juliet, and he fled Juliet’s tomb instead of trying to help her. All of these mistakes would not have happened if Friar thought out his plan a little more.
(Chapter 9 pg. 63) I think what he was saying was that he could have been anything that they wanted something good or something bad, but he would still help them.
