Storyboard Text

  • No, wife! I will not give up until i know the whole truth of who killed Laius!
  • Oedipus's Hamartia, was his inability to see the truth even when it was right in front of him.
  • Oedipus, stop searching if you love your life, i beg you! you do not want to know the truth!
  • Tiresias! You are a liar, old man! Creon put you up to this didn't he? It isn't true, i would remember it if i did it, you lying old man!
  • It is you, Oedipus! YOU are the true murderer! One day you will be blind just like me, and everyone will hate you!
  • Oedipus shows his Hubris, by being disrespectful to his fate, and claiming the truth to be lies
  • Oh light! Old man, it is I who killed Laius. I am the murderer, raised by the wrong parents!
  • After talking with the Shepherd, Oedipus realizes that he is the murderer. This is his Anagnorisis.
  • Wife OHHH wife! Tiresias was right! I have been sleeping with my mother, and i killed my father and my mother! Oh what a terrible reversal of fate! I must be punished for the awful things i have done *stabs eyes out*
  • Oedipus's peripeteia is when Jacosta kills herself and he stabs his eyes out and his fate is reversed
  • Creon, you must exile me from the city to please the Gods. I will live in solitude in the mountains of kitheron, where i was left to die
  • This is Oedipus's nemesis. Exile is a punishment that he cannot avoid
  • we must first ask Apollo, poor brother
  • Catharsis is throughout the whole play. The audience knows things that Oedipus is too blind to see. They know all the evil things that he did, and his unavoidable punishment
