Storyboard Text

  • Oedipus's flaw is his violent temper. He gets angry and upset very easily without knowing much information. He murdered a man (his father) because they ran into each other at a cross roads.
  • HAMARTIA
  • Oedipus's excessive pride led him to figuring out that he is Jocasta and Lauis's son. Jocasta kills herself because of this and Oedipus gouges his eyes out.
  • "'Wicked, wicked eyes ... you shall not see me nor my crime.'"
  • HUBRIS
  • Oedipus and Jocasta were trying to figure out who killed Lauis, when the old shepherd inferred that Oedipus is Jocasta and Lauis's son. He then realized he had murdered his father.
  • PERIPETEIA
  • ANAGNORISIS
  • Oedipus realizes he is the son of his wife and that he murdered his father: "Light of my days go dark. I want to gaze no more. My birth all sprung revealed from those it never should."
  • "'Lost! Ah lost!'"
  • CATASTROPHE
  • Oedipus's mistakes led to the death of both Jocasta and Lauis. They also influenced Oedipus to poke his eyes out and to go blind.
  • The catharsis in this play involves feelings of pity and terror. When Oedipus refuses to believe Teiresias's revelation that he murdered Lauis, the audience still feels pity for him. 
  • CATHARSIS
