Storyboard Text

  • hamartia
  • Everyone here is ugly & feckless.
  • hubris
  • You're ugly.
  • No, you're ugly.
  • peripeteia
  • Who are my parents?
  • Haha, you need to go on Maury.
  • Oedipus' pertinacity is evident; a trait that a leader probably shouldn't carry. When addressing those now beneath his power, he takes little consideration from others and focuses on strictly getting his point across--if you ask me, this is probably out of his own self-doubt and insecurities. While I am sure that Oedipus is in a proper position to rule otherwise, his rash decisions will only come back to haunt him.
  • anagnorisis
  • Eh, incest isn't that bad.
  • Lol, that's your mom, dude.
  • Considering that Oedipus Rex is portrayed in the form of a play, dialogue is the only thing we have to analyze--therefore any interaction plays a huge role to both the plot and character development. From this, we come to learn how the amount of pride that Oedipus bears for himself; especially in his conversations with Tiresias and, at first, Creon.
  • nemisis
  • I told y'all to listen to me... Now look what happened. Uglies.
  • Upon speaking with a messenger in the midst of determining who is behind the death of King Laius, it becomes evident that there is more uncertainty to Oedipus' past. In specific, it is a mystery as to who are the biological parents of Oedipus. This idea almost automatically shifts Oedipus' focus on the death of the king to his own family tree--unveiling the rest of the plotline of the play.
  • catharsis
  • No, you're almost as dumb as Hunter.
  • As if all at once, Oedipus' world came crashing down as every lie he was ever fed was revealed. Those with The Oedipus Rex in their hands come to learn that Oedipus did, in fact, kill his father, King Laius, and he did, in fact, have relations with his mother, Queen Jocasta--his wife and mother of his children.
  • Oedipus' entire life has revolved around avoiding the prophecy regarding the death of his father and the lover of his mother. To be quite frank, the plan seemed to be thought out enough to alter destiny; that is, until the truth was revealed and Oedipus had come to the realization that he has done nothing but prove the predicted fate to be true.
  • In a, rather, dramatic fashion, Oedipus insists on being banished from Thebes; of course, this was done after he had gouged out his own eyes. While I can admit that Oedipus' plea to see his daughters once more before tending to his inevitable fate filled me with sympathy, it just wasn't enough. My, along with any other readers', sincere hopes go out to the daughters--for you must feel bad for their quagmire.
  • Feel bad for me!
