Oedipus and a tragic flaw.....

It's the inevitability that is the real chill of the tragedy. That there is nothing that Oedipus, a good guy,
can do to change fate, a fate that has actually already been truth for about 20 years...and it's the realization with which a person cannot continue.

And with Oedipus, every action that the characters consciously do are actions attempting to make things better.
Even way back to the shepherd who finds the baby, who is clearly left purposefully to die on the mountainside.

Missing the mark.....trying to circumvent the fates and not hitting the self we are and the gifts amongst the curses.
