    Memory is the mental faculty of retaining and recalling past experiences. A repressed memory is one that is retained in the sub conscious mind, where one is not aware of it but where it can still affect both conscious thoughts and behavior. When memory is distorted or confabulated, the result can be what has been called the False Memory Syndrome: a condition in which a person's identity and interpersonal relationships are entered around a memory of traumatic experience which is objectively false but in which the person strongl

    In Today?s American society we fail to address several issues that need to be solved. Unfortunately, child abuse is one of the major issues that our country is plagued with, yet we neglect to bring this to the attention of the entire nation.

To set the record straight there are four basic forms of child abuse: emotional abuse, neglect, physical abuse, and sexual abuse (ICAN).

In the book Understanding Child Abuse and Neglect (1993), the U.S. Advisory Board calls this problem “an epidemic in American society, one that requires a critical national emergency response” (p. 42).

    Aristotle was one of the first to assert that images which are found in a play, especially recurring and dominant ideas, are used to intensify the "basic metaphor, which is the plot itself" (Shields 64). Such an important and consistent image or idea like Aristotle spoke of, is that of sight and blindness in "Oedipus The King," written by Sophocles, a Greek philosopher and playwright. The use of sight and blindness imagery in "Oedipus The King" offers the reader knowledge through Oedipus, a character symbolic of humanity, that to see life visually is useless and unimportant if you cannot see a

This concept can be directly related to the story Oedipus Rex. Aristotle stated, “the tragic hero falls into bad fortune because of some flaw in his character of the kind found in men of high reputation and good fortune such as Oedipus.” Essentially, he is telling us that Oedipus has a flaw that, under normal circumstances, would be a beneficial characteristic, but in his case, causes his demise.

By the play’s end, the King of Thebes fulfills the oracle. This sentiment is supported by several examples throughout the tragedy, all of which are beyond the control of the poor King. His fall from grace is to occur regardless of his character or any outside intervention. Despite Oedipus’s physical ability to see, he is blinded to the truth because of his arrogance and character traits. This contrasts the prophet Tiresias, who is inherent

Fate by definition is: “that which is inevitably predetermined; destiny, according to dictionary.com” meaning that fate is events, life, and other issues, for which, it has already determined that they will happen. In Oedipus Rex, the idea of Fate shines through very clearly as Oepidus is unable to escape his Fate, partially as a result of the people around him acting upon it. It was predetermined that Oedipus would kill his father and marry his mother.
