In Greek tragedy, you can't go down crying,
Pathos would make you cry. It would enlist your sentiments. Pathos has those things as its end. They want you to feel emotions. The emotions rule. Tragedy doesn't think of those as its end. It's a big difference.
There's no free will here. Oedipus acts out the script. How can we blame him
It's pathos. Pathos makes us feel sympathy, horror. It appeals to our emotions. It can make us cry, it can make us feel sorry. On the other hand, it's very difficult to assess blame.
To be tragic, in a Greek sense, you have to have a choice, ... And you make the wrong choice. It's a flawed person caught in a bad situation. The protagonist realizes he's done something wrong and is willing to take the consequences. The attitude is, I'll take whatever fate has decreed.
