This thesis attempts to state the conflict as it is manifest in Sophocles' Oedipus Tyrannus; to indicate the nature of the hero and the absolute force opposing him. It also attempts to define, in terms of the play, the nature of the resolution of the conflict, and the underlying tragic view which demands this resolution.
