Is Oedipus really a tragic hero
Is Oedipus really a tragic hero? What is his flaw, and how does it cause his downfall? Consider that his pursuit of the truth is based on his desire to help his people, because the city will not be saved until the murderer is found; consider that the prophecy is not of his making and he does not know he has fulfilled it. But also consider that the behaviors he exhibits can be construed as hubris, and what those behaviors might be (or have been in the past). In other words, is Oedipus a victim of the gods’ callous play with mortal lives, or is he in some way the architect of his own doom?
