Storyboard Text

  • But I will begin afresh. I will bring it all to light You have done well, Creon, and Apollo has, too, to show this solicitude for the murdered man.-Oedipus
  • May Apollo, who sent the messages from his oracle, come as our savior, and put an end to the plague.-Creon
  • There is no way to count the pain we suffer. All our people are sick. There is no sword of thought which will protect us.-Chorus
  • I pray that the raging War-God, who now without shield and armor hems me in with shouting and burns me, I pray that he may turn back and leave the borders of this land.
  • You are praying. As for your prayers, if you are willing to hear and accept what I say now and so treat the disease, you will find rescue and relief from distress.
  • So I now proclaim to all of you, citizens of Thebes: whoever among you knows by whose hand Laius son of Labdacus was killed, I order him to reveal the whole truth to me.
  • And further, I pronounce a curse on myself if the murderer should, with my knowledge, share my house; in that case may I be subjected to all the curses I have just called down on these people here.
  • You have put me under a curse, King, and under the threat of that curse I shall make a statement.
  • I did not kill Lauis and I am not in a position to say who did.
  • What you say is just. But to compel the gods to act against their will-no man could do that.
