Oedipus the King

Oedipus the King The purpose of an Interpretive Analysis Paper is to offer an intelligable, coherent, and sophisticated interpretation of a work of literature, art, or philosophy. Your interpretation must be original, and rely on evidence to support the thesis that you are arguing. Each paper must 4-5 pages in length, organized as an academic essay, double-spaced, with 1 inch margins. You must also cite your sources using MLA format. You must also include a bibliography containing a list of sources you explicitly or implicitly discuss in your paper, and sources you may have used in the process of research for the paper. In Classical Greece — as well as Western Intellectual history in general — writers and philosophers have often considered vision to be the privileged sense among the five senses. Vision is the sense that brings us closest to the truth of things: when we “see clearly”, or are “enlightened”, or our thinking is “cloudly”, or we are “blinded”. And this is especially true in Sophicles’ Oedipus the King. For this option, explain how vision (or the lack of vision, blindness) functions in the narrative, among the characters. Provide three examples of how vision functions in the story as a means or obstacle tor truth. You may also contrast Sophocles’ use of vision in Oedipus to Plato’s use of vision in the “Allegory of the Cave”.
