  • Dramatic Irony
  • When Oedipus kills his father he completes the first part of the prophecy without even knowing. This is an example of Hamartia because this is something Oedipus did that led to his downfall.
  • Symbolism
  • How can we cleanse ourselves- what rites? What's the source of the trouble?
  • Oedipus is placing the blame on Tiresias for the murder of Lauis, not knowing he is the killer. The pride that Oedipus is in blaming Tiresias is an example of Hubris.
  • When Oedipus says whoever killed Lauis needs to speak up. This is an example of Dramatic irony becuase the audience knows who killed Lauis but the characters do not.
  • The plague is the symbol of a crisis that thebes is facing due to Oedipus fufilling the prophecy. This is symblosim because there are symbols to signify ideas.
  • Banish the man or pay back blood with blood. Murder sets the plague storm on the city
