Oedipus was a risk
taker and a hero king. He is also a man of moral and intellectual excellence. He
seeks glory and accepts grief. According to Sophocle’s, Oedipus chooses the
possibility that is harder and more painful even though he had two options of
possibilities. He is committed to the heroic endurance. He seeks the
continuation of mind and memory. In this case, he entitles himself to the
submission of whatever the gods now intend.
