This is about the book Oedipus the King.
What are three distinct moments of suffering? How could these moments apply to Aristotle's theory: a critical component of tragedy is a scene of suffering.
First of all, give me a GOOD definition of suffering.
Then identify places in that play where someone is feeling like that.
would a suffering moment be basically like a tragic moment?
For example,as a child, Oedipus was given a prophecy that he was to grow up marrying his mother and slaying his father. Jocasta and Laius try to stop the prophecy by killing Oedipus, but in the end, fate was the ultimate winner.
Would that be a scene of suffering?
could someone please help me asap, i have an in class essay to write on this topic tomorrow and i want to get some notes ready to prepare.
