Personal Response: Oedipus The King

Oedipus the King is a book that found myself to really like, which seems a little weird to me because it isn’t the type of book that I usually read.

I think I liked it because of how the personality of Oedipus is presented. For me, it represents and identifies a lot of characteristics that people (including myself) normally have.

Another thing that I really liked about the book was that every time something happened to Oedipus or around him I became more and more intrigued, and I felt all this questions about the character and the story coming but as I kept reading those questions were being clarified, except two.

Is Oedipus a good person or a bad one and was he really capable to be in charge of his life or was it Apollo controlling it all along? This two questions raises my curiosity  about Oedipus, but I also feel like it’s this really good metaphor about people and our behaviors.
