"For if you’re the one this man says you are you know your birth carried an awful fate"
OEDIPUS: "Aaaiiii, aaaiii ... Alas! Alas!How miserable I am ... such wretchedness ...Where do I go? How can the wings of air "weep up my voice? Oh my destiny,how far you have sprung now!"
In the story the Anagnorisis moment would have to be when Oedipus finds out the prophecy came true. Which he killed his father and married his mother. Along with, having children with her.
"killing him with your own hands.If you could use your eyes, I would have said that you had done this work all by yourself."
By the end of the play I felt the most catharsis. When Oedipus entered the bedroom. Jocasta had already killed herself. I felt fear and sadness. Along with, Oedipus shoving brooches in his eye socket.
"I tell him to avoid the danger of the major charged by speaking out against himself. If so,he will be sent out from this land unhurt—and undergo no further punishment."
The hamartia of Oedipus would be the lack of knowledge of his own origins. Along with his own actions , will, pride, and anger.
One example of Hubris in the play would be when Oedipus blamed Tiresias for the murder of Laius, however he himself is the killer.
"I say that you yourself are the very man you’re looking for."
Oedipus is a perfect example of dramatic irony. The entire play is focused on Oedipus who unknowingly knew he himself is the killer and unaware that the prophecy came true.
The symbolic in Oedipus, would be him that he is blinded by the truth along with being unaware he is the killer of Laius.
