  • Nemesis
  • Oedipus is told by Tiresias that he is the criminal of a prophecy. When Oedipus hears about his prophecy everything changes and he becomes very weak in his sense of leadership and priorities. He begins to search for his truth instead of solving the real problem.
  • Catharsis
  • Oedipus discovers that the prophecies are true, after he discovers this he begins to slowly deteriorate from the true leader he was before. Oedipus then blinds himself and slanders himself upon learning what evils he has committed upon the gods and people.
  • Oedipus questions the Herdsman to discover that he really did kill his father and lay with his mother. Oedipus finally learns that the prophecies are true and this really hits him hard.
  • The audience can learn that sometimes that in the pursuit of passion and what we love, we may find out more about ourselves than we want. The truth may hurt or strengthen our character, but we must remain strong to prevent any further mistakes.
