Sophocles' drama is a perfect example of Aristotle's paradigm. Aristotle states that tragedy is "drama whose main characters are noble, and the chief point of tragedy is to show how a person's fortune can change because of circumstances that are-or may sometimes seem to be-beyond his or her control." After reading Oedipus Tyrannus it is obvious that all the above is followed. First of all, Oedipus and the majority of the characters are noble. This is so because when the audience sees that even the worse can happen to someone even in grand height and social stature then it can certainly happen to them too. The drama also has Oedipus fall be out of his control. He tried to control the situation by abandoning who he believed were his parents in order to prevent the prophecy of the oracle from occurring.
