Tieresias warns him, Jocasta warns him, and the old shepherd warns him, but he brashly ignores them all. It is not that he is a bad man; his motive is both self-less and selfish. He wants to save his city, but he also wants glory and vindication. He believes that he, one man, can be everything. Sophocles is pointing out that this isnt true.

And a good Protestant will feel a little anxious when Luther speaks of a "preparation" for righteousness, sometimes in connection with his idea of "humility" (which he seems to regard as, at any rate in part...

Ray Bradbury Hundred Fifty
1,539 wordsA common theme in science fiction is outer space. Many of Bradbury's stories take place there. As critic Wayne L. Johnson observes, For Bradbury, space is not merely a stage upon which stories of the future are played, it is what the Great Plains were to the pioneers, not just a frontier but a symbol of the future for the human race (49). If space serves as a symbol of the future for the human race, the story Kaleidoscope has a large amount of symbolism. In this story, the crew of a spaceship is...

Jesus Christ One Man
452 wordsHow Christian was Seneca? Seneca was born 4 years before Jesus Christ, so it was probable that the eventual teacher of Nero was influenced by the words of Jesus Christ.

He had experienced these games several times and found the blood lust hideous, to the point where h...
