Storyboard Text

  • Polybus was nothing to you, that’s why, not in blood
  • Oedipus' fatal flaw is when he kills his father as the prophecy said. This event kills his father, eventually leads to death of Jocasta, and Oedipus stabbing his own eyes.
  • Why should I have eyes? Why, when nothing I saw was worth seeing?
  • When Oedipus hears about the prophecy, he does not want it to become true. His hubris allows him to believe that he can define the gods and their prophecy.
  • Oedipus is awaiting news from the messenger about his relationship to Polybus. The messenger instead reveals that the prophecy came true, causing a massive change in events.
  • What spasms athwart me shoot, What pangs of agonizing memory?
  • Oedipus discovers all the damage he has done when he sees that his wife/mother has committed suicide. In response to this discovery, Oedipus stabs his eyes out with the needle from a pin.
  • When Jocasta finds out that she is married to her son, she kills herself. This is a catastrophe because not only is it the death of Jocasta, but it leads to Oedipus blinding himself, leading to a new king.
  • Oedipus and Jocasta are shocked upon finding out that the prophecy came true. This is the catharsis because the audience becomes emotional, and this leads to a "rebuilding" of the kingdom.
