Due to Oedipus’ blindness and ignorance, he is unable to see past the truth. His hamartia was his poor sense of judgement; he tried to go against his own fate by making decisions on his own. He was warned by many around him but did not seem to be more cautious or stop chasing a hurting truth. Oedipus was responsible for his own downfall, his constant persistence of going against wise people’s words and acting on the belief of his own intelligence ultimately led him to a path of destruction. In the end, he went from being known as the noble King of Thebes to a blinded man who has no point of living anymore.
