  • HUBRIS
  • "Yes, you, you planned this thing, and I suspect you of the very muder even..." (Sophocles 20)

  • ANAGNORISIS
  • "Myself entwined with those I never could. And I the killer of those I never would." (Sophocles 67}
  • Oedipus doesn't believe Tiresias when he tries telling him the truth, so he accuses him and Creon of plotting against him. This shows his excessive pride because he refuses to believe the truth. 
  • CATASTROPHE
  • Oedipus is told by Tiresias that he is the killer of Laius.
  • CATHARSIS
  • Oedipus finally puts the pieces together and realizes his fate actually did come true, and is extremely upset. Jocasta doesn't know whether she should call him son or husband. 
  • Jocasta hangs herself with her robe because she is so horrified knowing the prophecy is true. Oedipus, finding her dead, pulls the pins off her robe and stabs his own eyes out.
  • The audience starts to feel bad for Oedipus when he talks to his daughters for the last time.
