Oedipus Story

Oedipus Story covers the tragic fate of men and women who violate mankind’s most awesome taboos and must suffer the penalty both in the torments of their own souls and in the fearful punishments meted out to them by guards and men even if they were actually innocent of guilty intent. This specific situation involved in our study is so ancient that we refer to it by a term derived from the name of a Greek prince Oedipus who lived more than three thousand years ago.
