Oedipus and Macbeth

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

"If we compare Oedipus Rex with Shakespeare's Macbeth, another play about the killing of a king, we find many parallels."

Way to go Kevin, nice comparison on Monday, I really didn't realize how much alike the two plays are until Kevin mentioned it, I believe on Monday. These plays have many similarities and were written nearly two thousand years apart.
