  1. "Oedipus The King" by Sophocles
  2. "Medea" by Euripides
  3. "Prometheus Bound" by Aeschylus

In Greek mythological tragedies, there is a persistent belief among the characters that a variety of gods control the course of events and the actions of men and women. The gods took a variety of forms in these plays, and they would often speak directly with human beings and inform them about various courses that they should be taking in life. If we analyze three plays from the time, this mindset and strong belief that gods are in control of everything that occurs is prevalent. In the plays "Oedipus The King", by Sophocles, "Medea" by Euripides, as well as in "Prometheus Bound" by Aeschylus a strong and persistent belief in various gods drives much of the action in the story and is an essential element in the lives of all the characters.
