My poor children, i know well.. Your pain is my priority. Have no fear, I am here. I will protect and find who committed such horrible actions.
King Oedipus! We are here gathered around praying. For you to save us from Sphinx and help find the murder of our fallen King.
Creon, my old trusted family friend,has secretly conspired to overthrow me
I will do anything in my power to heal this murderous wound with Apollo's help, don't stop looking!
You are all ignorant, I will not reveal what I have within me. You, You Oedipus are the reason! my silence, events shall unfold
In my anger I will not deal with this. You should know I get the feeling you played your part, as much as you could, killing him with your own hands. If you could use your eyes, I would have said that you had done this all by yourself.
No Oedipus! it isn't me or Creon. I tell you, the man you have been seeking all this time is you.
How dare you accuse me Oedipus, it is me, Creon, Your brother-in-law
Do not condemn me on an unproved charge. It’s not fair to judge these things by guesswork, to assume bad men are good or good men bad.
Have you grown so bold that you come to my own home, you are obviously the murderer of King Lias, a thief who clearly wants to steal my throne?
You're stubborn, unhappy to concede, and when you lose your temper, you go too far. But men like that find it difficult to tolerate themselves. In that there’s justice.
Oedipus, for the sake of the gods, trust him. Respect that oath he made before all heaven— do it for my sake and for those around you.
Let him go, even though it means I must be killed or sent from here in exile, forced out in disgrace.
