In the story Creon tells Oedipus that that he was born into this world to kill his father and marry his mother. Oedipus is ironically upset because it is unlike his human will to do this crime. Overall, the story demonstrates the theme human will vs. fate because it is Oedipus fate, not his will, to commit adultery.
