In Oedipus, read through line 793.

As you read, take notes–on paper or in your book–in response to this statement from the introduction: “One abiding question in Oedipus the King asks is whether Oedipus controls his own destiny or whether Apollo and/or a personal divinity, or daimon, does” (4).  In other words, how would you answer this question, given what you have read so far?
