Storyboard Text

  • Hubris
  • "I came, Oedipus, who knew nothing... I solved the riddle by my wit alone" (435)
  • Catharsis
  • "madness and stabbing pain and memory of evil deeds I have done!" (1388)
  • Hamartia
  • "Once on a time Loxias said that I should lie with my mother and take on my hands the blood of my own father. And so for these long year I've lived away from Corinth" (1056)
  • When Oedipus spoke to Teiresias, the blind prophet that accused him of killing Laius, he spoke highly of himself and was very proud of his successes. 
  • Pathos
  • "these two girls...do not allow them wander like beggars, poor and husbandless" (1564)
  • Oedipus releases his emotions when he finds his mother, Jocasta, dead after discovering he was her son. He stabs his eyes because he can't deal with the guilt that the prophecy was fulfilled. 
  • Anagnorisis
  • Oedipus tried escaping the prophecy from the moment he heard it, and he escaped Corinth, but did not realize that he was actually a Thebian, and this led to his downfall.
  • Theme: Sight
  • "this wily beggar who has only eyes for his own gains, but blindness is his skill" (425)
  • Oedipus makes two requests to Creon, and what he asks shows more of his emotions. He wishes for his mother to have a proper burial, and wishes for Creon to look after his daughters when he's gone. 
  • Oedipus had a moment of realization after finding out the prophecy had come true, and he married his mother and killed his father. 
  • "May I be gone out of men's sight before I see the deadly taint of this disaster come upon me" (908)
  •  Although the prophet is blind, he has the ability to see what others can not. Oedipus was blind to the prophecy, and when it finally happened and he knew, he literally removed his sight.
