oedipus

Storyboard Text

  • Hubris
  • "But I came, Oedipus, who knew nothing, and I stopped her."
  • "You have your eyes but see not where you are in sin, nor where you live, nor whom you live with."
  • Hamartia
  • Catharsis
  • "Darkness! Horror of darkness enfolding, resistless, unspeakable visitant sped by an ill wind in haste! madness and stabbing pain and memory of evil deeds I have done!"
  • Oedipus is talking to Teiresias, and shows his pride through this quote. He says this quote because he believes Teiresias is doubting his wit when he solved the riddle.
  • Sight
  • "I have a deadly fear that the old seer had eyes. You'll show me more if you can tell me one more thing."
  • In this scene, Oedipus aggravated with Teiresias and in denial because he does not believe that he has any wrongdoing. Teiresias is explaining Oedipus' flaws by telling him that he may have his eye sight, but he has no knowledge of who his parents are and that he is living in their house. Oedipus' lack of knowledge is proven to be a tragic flaw.
  • "O Oedipus, unhappy Oedipus! that is all I can call you, and the last thing that I shall ever call you."
  • Foreshadowing
  • Oedipus has realized that the rumors are true, and he is the one that he is trying to find. After hearing such news, Oedipus is releasing his emotions by saying this quote. Oedipus is demonstrating his sorrow and guilt, along with the pain he feels for being responsible for the murder of his own father, and fulfilling the prophecy.
  • Pathos
  • Second Messenger: "shrieking out such things as: they will never see the crime I have committed or had done upon me!"
  • After hearing about Jocasta's death, Oedipus could not handle his emotions. He showed his emotions by stabbing his eyes out because he could not control his emotions mentally. By doing so, he did not have to see any pain or crimes that have been done.
  • Jocasta tells Oedipus that the last thing she will call him is unhappy. This foreshadows her death because that was the last time Oedipus was going to talk to or see her before she takes her own life.
  • Although Teiresias is blind, Oedipus is learning that he is the one that is truly blind and unaware Oedipus begins to see that there is a possibilty that he was the murderer, as he learns about the death of Laius, and realizes that Thebans have been blind to the truth the whole time.
