A study in the tragic fulfillment of ancient prophecies, Oedipus the King (or Oedipus Rex) demonstrates the belief that humans cannot alter destiny or escape the judgment of the gods. Oedipus learns of his distressing role in events that have brought a plague to his city. The knowledge causes Queen Jocasta to end her life. In his agony, Oedipus blinds himself and is reduced to beggary.
