  • Hubris Oedipus views himself above the normal standard of men. He has a right to claim a certain degree of pride for his accomplishments, but has taken this beyond a reasonable level, even placing himself at a level only succeeded by the gods, showing defiance towards them.
  • "Here I am – myself – you all know me, the world knows my fame: I am Oedipus."
  • Peripeteia Oedipus is intially seen as a man of great stature who upholds high moral standards. A man of wisdom and leadership. This all changes when the messanger from Tiresias arrives. Oedipus once again has to confront his fate from which he was so determined to avoid.
  • "I have come from the Oracle of Delphi. Your prophecy will come true."
  • Anagnorisis Queen Jocasta realizes that she has had children with her own son.
  • Nemesis Oedipus cannot avoid his prophecy. He unknowingly marries his mother.
  • Will you marry me?
