An example of Oedipus making a clear personal choice that affects his life is after Creon returns from Delphi with news from Apollo. Creon suggests that he speak to Oedipus in private, and tells Oedipus “If you want

    Community is a group of people living or working together. The people who share the community should be united as one and work together to make their surroundings a better place.
