  • Hamartia
  • Hubris
  • I'M LEAVING FOREVER SO THAT I DON'T MARRY MY MOM AND KILL MY DAD!!
  • Perepeteia
  • UM.. WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY? NO I MUST KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS
  • YOU'RE NOT REALLY POLYBOS'S SON... THAT'S NOT TOO BAD RIGHT?
  • His hamartia is his desire to know everything. he is too curious he sees too much though he is mentally blind. His ultimate downfall is when he physically blinds himself, he gouges out his eyes.
  • Anagnorisis
  • YOU ARE LAIUS'S AND JOCASTA'S SON! YOU HAVE MARRIED YOUR MOTHER AND KILLED YOUR FATHER... ON ACCIDENT.
  • Oedipus's greatest act of hubris is when he tries to deny his fate. His excessive pride cost him. Oedipus tries to change his fate by never returning to Corinth, where he grew up and never seeing his parents. Ironically it's this choice that results in his horrid fate.
  • Nemesis
  • I'VE MARRIED MY SON
  • I WAS MURDERED BY MY SON
  • In Oedipus Peripeteia happens when the Messenger comes from Corinth. The man tries to ease the King's mind by telling him that he's not really Polybos' son. Though the Messenger intends only good things with this information, it ends up being the thing that drives Oedipus toward his horrible fate. He is already too intrigued (fueled by his Hamartia) and he continues to seek information.
  • Catharsis
  • WE'RE THE PEOPLE OF THEBES. WE ARE IN A PLAUGE :'(
  • When the prophecy is revealed to have already come true. Oedipus is told who his real parents are. His wife is his birth mother and his wife's dead husband, his birth dad is Laius. He had murdered him before knowing that was his father.
  • In Oedipus The King, Oedipus faces his nemesis pretty much since the beginning. Since the day he was born, he was told of his life prophecy and his unavoidable fate; Oedipus would kill his father and marry his mother.
  • I'VE MARRIED MY MOM AND KILLED MY DAD
  • A cathartic moment in Oedipus The King would be at the end of this tragedy. The audience experiences an immense amount of emotion when Oedipus realizes his role in the plight of the people of Thebes. Oedipus feels great remorse and shame for what he has done: "When all my sight was horror everywhere." This is intended to get the audience to sympathize with Oedipus and it works.
  • IT'S BECAUSE OF ME THAT ALL OF THESE PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING. I FEEL GREAT REMORSE AND SHAME :'( BANISH ME!
