Consider either Achilles in The Iliad or Oedipus in Oedipus the King as ancient "heroes." What does the hero do to earn that designation? What are the benefits and burdens that come with his role as hero? Where does he stand in relation to the rest of society? It is common to think hero is someone who dares to take risks to do great things. Oedipus in Oedipus the King can be considered as a tragic hero. He was of a high position, a king of Thebes after defeating the Sphinx and solving a riddle. He lived a wealthy life until misfortune struck because of his mistakes. The beginning scene shows that Oedipus is deeply concerned about the welfare of his people, because a plague has emerged. Oedipus often uses the word “my children” as a way of showing that he cares for all his people dearly. The priest praises him and his people believe that Oedipus is “Surest in mortal ways/And wisest in the ways of God”. He is morally a good person and would not stop until his quest to find truth and help is his people are resolved. Oedipus’ tragic flaw that causes his downfall, is his pride. He is too prideful and arrogant, assuming he has the power to control everything in his life. He is an influential man who has committed error in judgment and suffers the consequences of his actions. Oedipus’ parents and he try to avoid their fates that were stated by oracles. If Oedipus had not fled from Corinth, his father would be alive. If he had not entered Thebes, he would not have married his mother. Trying to avoid his fate only pushed him to meet it. When comparing Oedipus to David, David is perceived as the hero type. When David decided that he would fight Goliath, he did not wear the armor that Saul had given him, stating that it was too heavy and that God would protect him just as He did many other times. David, at the time, was just a young boy and was small so he seemed to be the underdog. While the outcome of David’s fight was victorious and was treated as a hero, Oedipus was not. He was treated more as an exile rather than a hero. His story teaches that we all must do our best, but we cannot overcome the inevitable.
