The paper provides answers to five questions about the play "Oedipus Rex," by Sophocles. The paper discusses the issues of hubris, fate, free will and also touches upon Freud's "On the Interpretation of Dreams."

From the Paper:

"Hubris is defined in The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language as over bearing pride or presumption arrogance. This term aptly applies to the character of Oedipus in the play "Oedipus Rex" because Oedipus is so full of pride that he is blind to the reality of his true identity and what he has done. Oedipus boldly declares that he will find his father's murderer, completely unaware that he himself murdered his father."
