In the 21st Century, mistaken identity is no less prevalent than in the time of Ancient Greece. Children become orphans and many are abandoned by their parents. Invitro-fetilization has led to a number of babies unware of their parentage. Thus, yes, when considered it is possible for readers to identify with his plight even today.
