Storyboard Text

  • Hamartia
  • I will say no more. Do as you like, build your anger to whatever pitch you please, rage your worst!
  • Not if you see things calmly, rationally, as I do. Look at it this way first: who on his right mind would rather rule and live in anxiety than sleep in peace? Particularly if he enjoys the same authority.
  • You -- here? You have the gall to show your face before the palace gates? You, plotting to kill me, kill the king--- I see it all, the marauding thief himself scheming to steal my crown and power!
  • Hubris
  • Now you have me to fight for you, you'll see: I am the land's avenger by all rights, and Apollo's champion too!
  • Courage! Even if my mother turns out to be a slave, and I a slave, three generations back, you would not seem common.
  • Nemesis
  • Your father killed his father, sowed his mother, one, one and the selfsame womb sprang you-- he cropped the very roots of his existence!
  • Peripeteia and Anagnorisis
  • O god-- All come true all burst to light! I stand revealed at last-- cursed in my birth, cursed in marriage, cursed in the lives I cut down with these hands!
