Fate and Morality in Sophocles' Theban Plays
[ send me this essay ]
A six page analysis of the way Sophocles' sense of the individual's self-determination grows through his Theban trilogy -- 'Oedipus the King,' 'Oedipus at Colonus,' and 'Antigone.' The paper asserts that by the final play, the outcomes of one's actions have become inevitable because the individual has chosen them, rather than being the result of the machinations of some god. No additional sources.

Heroes In Oedipus and Antigone
[ send me this essay ]
A 5 page paper discussing the two main characters of the plays by Sophocles. Each of these individuals held a position of power in one form or another and each used their power differently with a different result. Where Oedipus was strong and perhaps blind to many truths, Antigone was a fighter yet yielded to the pressure of the truths and eventually killed herself. Oedipus was strong and ignorant, where Antigone was passionate and destroyed by the recognition of the truth. No additional sources provided.
