Storyboard Text

  • The Oracle's Warning
  • He was murdered; and Apollo commands us now to take revenge upon whoever killed him.
  • Teiresias' Accusation
  • You yourself are the pollution of this country.
  • Laius' Death
  • Laius was killed by marauding strangers where three highways meet...
  • If Apollo had not cursed Thebes, then Oedipus would not have wanted to catch the murderer of Laius.
  • The Messenger's Truth
  • Polybos was not your father.
  • If Oedipus had not been accused by Teiresias of being the murderer, then he would not become more angry and truth-seeking.
  • The Story Unfolds
  • I, Oedipus, Oedipus, damned in his birth, in his marriage damned, damned in the blood he shed with his own hand!
  • If Jocasta had not retold the story of Laius' death, then Oedipus would not have noticed the connection between the perpetrator and himself.
  • Oedipus' Punishment
  • Exactly how she died I do not know... He struck at his eyes--not once, but many times and the blood spattered his beard.
  • If the messenger had not told Oedipus of his heritage, then Oedipus would continue to believe that Polybos was his biological father.
  • If Oedipus didn't realize that he was the child of Jocasta based on the mounting evidence, then there would be no tragic ending.
  • If Jocasta didn't die and Oedipus didn't blind himself, then there would be no tragedy.
