Imagine when you realize it was all your fault. In the play Oedipus Rex by Sophocles, Oedipus, king of Thebes, is guilty of murdering the late king Laïos, despite the fact that he did not know he was his father. Oedipus was under a prophecy that said he would kill his father and sleep with his mother. Both came true, and he payed the price for it. He was banished from Thebes.
During that time, Jocasta commits suicide. Oedipus discovers the body and is in so much grief he uses the golden pins that held Jocasta’s dress and “spears the pupils of his eyes” (93). This unbearable mishap is the last article of the proclamation that Oedipus carries out. Furthermore, in an attempt to keep his children, Creon advises him to “not be the master in everything. What you once won and held did not stay with you all your lifelong” (107).
He exemplified the ways of both a hero and a villain. However, it is my opinion that he is a villain. I believe this because he could be an extremely violent leader and because he never fully reigned over one of the places he conquered/ruled. He is a villain because he murdered thousands of people and soldiers from different nations. Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them.
Brother also had plans to kill Doodle. “It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable, so I began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow” (158).

The hatred that he had for his father he carried with him throughout his whole life. That hatred turned into him killing Ikemefuna and the messenger. Ikemefuna was thought of as a son and he killed him in fear of being considered weak in front of his clan members. That weakness was thought of his weakness which was considered a failure.

In the same way I did with the previous human, I attacked and killed the other human. I did not know what to do going forward, for my heart was filled with pain and sorrow. I felt as though I had become the very monster that humans ascribed to sasquatches. My justification was that he killed my parents, but in my heart, I knew that seeking revenge didn 't solve the heart of the issue. From that moment forward, I lived alone and in solitude heartbroken without anyone to care for.
For example Oedipus says, “ For whoever he was who killed that man would as soon kill me with that same violent hand.” although he is the killer. Another example of irony is when Oedipus declares no one is allowed to speak to the person responsible for the curse of thebes, he says “ I decree no one shall receive him or speak to him nor make him partner in prayers to the gods or sacrifices.” although he is the one who brought the curse upon them. The use of Symbolism brought the forth the key to Oedipus figuring out his identity. The scars on his feet highlight he has been in pain since birth. It also emphasizes his ignorance ,since the scars are the keys to figuring out his identity.
The creature in Frankenstein once said “This death will carry despair to him, and a thousand other miseries shall torment him”. The creature started of trying to be friends with humans until all they did was try to kill him so now he seeks vengeance. this coincides with locke's theory by showing how he came in the world a blank slate, but the hatred from the humans turned him evil. The creature also said “My spirit will sleep in peace,or if it thinks, it will not surely think thus, Farewell”. the creature killed his creator and now he feels bad for taking away life from the one who gave him life, so he decides to kill himself.
Every word that left his mouth contained Banquo and his absence “And to our dear friend Banquo, whom we miss…” Why it is that very day Banquo dies Macbeth talks of him endlessly. That day as I stood guard, three leery faces dressed in black secretly met with Macbeth. Later that day, Banquo was confirmed dead, with Fleance narrowly escaping the savage slaughter. It is evidence enough to say Macbeth was the man behind this ghastly planning. It has all become obvious, he is the one who brought this tenacious wrath to this town, he is the one who commanded the death of Banquo and he is the one who forced the blade into our beloved king.
