Homework Help: English - Oedipus Rex

Posted by Karen on Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 11:13am.

I have to find evidence to support which character I think it the most guilty for what happens to Oedipus. I was just wondering if anyone knows whether or not Sophocles is trying to point the finger at someone other than Oedipus, who I think is the most guilty. My reasons are that he ran away from his parents, knowing that they might not be his real parents, he didn't dig deep enough to try to find his real parents, his rashness and temper caused him to kill the king's group just because he "jostled" him. Also, if anyone has any other ideas about why he would be guilty, let me know. Or if you have a different opinion, tell me about it :)
