Persecution

Rix, ''Was Oedipus Framed?'' -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

"Oedipus is held responsible for the plague that is depopulating the Theban city. And the expulsion of the culprit is the only way to salvation. In this way, the myth of Oedipus constitutes a classic story of persecution."

Rix's interrprutations of Oedipus were very interesting to me. I totally agree with him when he says Sophocles' play is a classic story of persecution. I never really thought of that specific point until I read it in Rex's academic atricle.
