Storyboard Text

  • Slide 3: Encounter with Tiresias
  • Enough! I won't listen to this sort of talk from you. Damn you! My curse on you! Get out of here, quickly.
  • Do you even know who your parents are? Without knowing it, you are the enemy of your own flesh and blood, the dead below and living above.
  • Slide 4: Accusations.
  • You! What are you doing here? Do you have the face to come to my palace-you who are convicted as my murderer, exposed as a robber attempting to steal my throne?
  • I have a suggestion. You in your turn listen to a reply as long as your speech, and, after you have heard me, then judge me
  • Slide 9: Oedipus' Fear.
  • I am afraid that Apollo's prophecy may come true.
  • You don't know what you are doing, if you are afraid to come home because of them.
  • Page 25 shows Hamartia by showing Oedipus' short temper and excessive hubris. Oedipus is too prideful to allow himself to hear Tiresias out.
  • Slide 10: Change of Ideals.
  • What? With a clue like this? Give up on the search? Fail to solve the mystery of my birth? Never!
  • Page 30 shows Dramatic Irony by allowing the reader to see a sharp change of Oedipus' demeanor from a reasonable hero to an angry, bitter, and paranoid man.
  • Slide 15: Blind now, Blind forever.
  • What use had I for eye? Nothing I could see would bring me joy.
  • How could you bring yourself to put out the light of your eyes?
  • Page 56 shows the concept of a Tragic Hero as Oedipus is shown to be fearful over the prophecy coming true; the prophecy being that he would end up killing his father and marrying his mother. This fear is what would end up being a key to unlocking the prophecy.
  • Slide 16: Sorrow.
  • O Cithaeron, why did you recieve me? Why did you not take and kill me on the spot?
  • Page 60 displays Peripeteia by showing a clear point where the main goal of Oedipus changes. It goes from "Who killed Laius?" to "How was I born? Who birthed me?"
  • Why ask who he means? Don't pay any attention to him.
  • Page 75 shows the concept of Motifs by constantly repeating the ever evolving idea of blindness within the story. First starting as Oedipus' blindness to the truth, it later becomes his downfall, as he physically blinds himself.
  • Page 77 shows Thought by giving the reader Oedipus' feelings of regret and remorse for his previously unknown actions. This truly emphasizes the pain and agony Oedipus is going through and allows the reader to think about that pain.
