Storyboard Text

  • The Priest is looking on Oedipus to once again go out and save the city. It shows what confidence the priest has in Oedipus in asking him to save the city. 
  • Oedipus, greatest in all man's eyes. We pray, find your strength again and rescue our city.
  • This is the first time that the readers see Oedipus's pride. Also they first time we see an opening moment in witch we realize that the people of Thebes have to find out who the killer of the king is. 
  • I will bring this to light again, King Phoebus fittingly took this care about the dead.
  • The riddling Sphinx induced us to neglect mysterious crimes and rather seek solution of troubles at our feet. 
  • This is dramatic Irony because the audience knows that Oedipus is the actual killer. He is blaming Teiresias because he wont tell him who killed the king. 
  • For I would have you know I think you were complotter of the deed and doer of the deed save in so far as for the actual killing. Had you had eyes I would have said alone you murdered him. 
  • Oedipus says jealousy because he thinks Teiresias is jealous of him. An example of Hubris. Also Teiresias is trying to tell him that he is the murderer but he won't listen which makes Oedipus more mad and creates a big conflict between them. 
  • Great store of jealously fill your treasury chests. This wily beggar who has only eyes for his own gains, but blindness in his skill. 
  • Creon is no hurt to you, but you are to yourself. 
  • But I Came, Oedipus, who knew nothing, and I stopped her. I solved the riddle by wit alone. 
  • Oedipus is very prideful and is an example of hubris.  He is really considering that Teiresias killed the king. 
  • A deadly footed death, double striking curse, from father and mother both, shall drive you forth out of this land. 
  • Teiresias kicks Oedipus out of his house, and gives him sight into the death ot the king. And creates conflict for the kingdom and oedipus.
