Priest-There is a plaque that is killing our children, destroying our crops, and killing our cattle
A priest consults Oedipus about the plaque affecting Thebes.
Priest tells Apollo how to get rid of the problem
"Here is what I was told by the god Apollo. He ordered us, in clear terms, to drive out the thing that defiles this land, which we, he says, have fed and cherished. We must not let it grow so far that it is beyond cure"(9).
Oedipus- Whats Going On?
Call u pon the The Priest of Apollo
Oedipus calls u pon the the Priest of Apollo, Tiresias
Oedipus finds out how to get rid of the murder and curses him.
I have learned that the only way to get rid of this plaque is to get rid of the murder or murders of lauis. "As for the murder himself, I call down a curse on him. May he drag out an evil death in life in misery"(15).
"You are not aware of the one you live with"(20). For the murder is Creon
I call for the banishment of Creon
They find out the murder is Creon, through Tiresias.
If only i didn't kill Lauis, I would have never have gotten banished.
Creon is depressed because he got banished for thebes for being the murder
