i)Blindness
In the ancient Greek drama,
Oedipus the
tragic hero is convinced he can
overcome the Oracle’s predication
that he will unwittingly kill his
father and marry his mother. He
blinds himself in a fit of rage after
the prophecy is fulfilled.
ii)Hubris
Is the word given to the excessive
pride exhibited by the tragic hero
in
ancient Greek drama, which brings
about his downfall. It is hubris that
ultimately causes Bigger’s death.
Filled with excitement after
committing the
seemingly ultimate crime-killing
and decapitating a white woman-
Bigger puts aside his doubts and
his instinctual desire to run and
save himself and repeatedly
returns to the scene of the crime,
the Dalton house.

===================
6. The use of irony in the text is
called situational irony. Bigger has
always regarded every white
person as his mortal enemy and as
fake will have it,a white friend is
brought his way. To him, Every
white person is a symbol of
oppression. On the contrary. Many
Dalton is friend to bigger but
bigger is ready to exhibit his
disdain for white folks as the same
feelings is felt towards Jan too. On
the other hand, many and jam (the
two I white lovers ) shows him love
and friendliness which makes him
ashamed of himself. Both lovers
are closing so at the rock of
disapproval from their own folks.
The two parties are actually
operating in total ignorance of the
other hand situation , a condition
brought about by years of
unhealthy extreme opinion of the
other .
 It is ironical that jam,whom bigger
tried blame his murder of Mary on,
would later take step to free the
some bigger of culpability in the
crime. He is the one who brings
max to Bigger to act as his counsel
during his arraignment.
 Another ironic situation is noticed
with the respect of bigger is
freedom. While restricted to a cell
in prison , he feels free where as
outside he feel.
