    Sometimes life s a real bitch Fate is unavoidable in ancient Greek Tragedy Trying to avoid it will only lead to it, and doing nothing will lead you there too So if a God tells you that you will die at the hands of your son, and that he will then go on to steal your wife, you d best do nothing because it s going to happen anyway Any preventative action

    I d say spoiler alert but it seems ridiculous I ve taught this play for years, and I think this year I finally decided what makes this play great My students never feel sympathy for Macbeth, but they do for Oedipus, and that always used to bother me They whine in their teenage attitudinal voices, But he didn t know that was his father I always respond, So it s ok to KILL PEO
