Storyboard Text

  •  What you have said is most appropriate, for these men here have just informed me that Creon is approaching.  (line. 91-93)
  •  Lord Phoebus clearly orders us to drive away        the polluting stain this land has harboured….  banishment—      or atone for murder by shedding blood again (line. 113- 118)
  •  When the ruling king had fallen in this way,       what bad trouble blocked your path, preventing you        from looking into it? (line. 153-155)
  •   I do not fear the face of your displeasure— there is no way you can destroy me. I tell you, the man you have been seeking all this time, while proclaiming threats and issuing orders about the one who murdered Laius—that man is here.  (line 541- 546)
  •  Get out, and may the plague get rid of you! Off with you! Now! Turn your back and go!" And don’t come back here to my home again (line. 519-521)
  • So I say this to you, since you have chosen to insult my blindness—you have your eyesight....Those eyes of yours...will be dark.... So go on—keep insulting Creon and my prophecies, for among all living mortals no one will be destroyed more wretchedly than you. (line. 494-517)
  • You live in endless darkness of the night, so you can never injure me or any man" who can glimpse daylight. (line. 449-451)
  • You should not accuse a friend of yours and thus dishonour him with a mere story which may not be true, when he’s sworn an oath and therefore could be subject to a curse.  (line. 794-798)
  • I caught him committing treason, conspiring against my royal authority. (line. 779-781)
  • Let him go, then, even though it’s clear I must be killed or sent from here in exile, forced out in disgrace. I have been moved to act compassionately by what you said, not by Creon’s words. (line. 810-814)
  •   Oedipus, for the sake of the gods, trust him in this. Respect that oath he made before all heaven—do it for my sake and for those around you. (line.784-786)
  • Let me not prosper but die a man accursed, if I have done what you accuse me of. (line. 782-783)
  • You are obstinate—obviously unhappy to concede, and when you lose your temper, you go too far. But men like that find it most difficult to tolerate themselves. In that there’s justice (line. 816-819)
