Storyboard Text

  • Hamartia
  • How dare you try to run me off the road!
  • Anagnorisis
  • I am actually the son of Polybus, the guy that raised you, and your real father was Laius who left you for dead.
  • The only rational thing to do is gash my eyes out after you have proven my fate to be true and I find my wife/mom dead by her own hands
  • Hubris
  • I can't believe you thought you could get away with making me, Oedipus, angry.
  • *dead noises*
  • Harmatia is a character's tragic flaw that leads to his/her downfall. Oedipus' rash anger leads him to kill his own father at the crossroads. His temper got the better of him after a carriage ride goes sour and Oedipus decides to make them “pay in full,” (46). This unintentionally forfills his doomed fate.
  • Peripeteia
  • Anagnorisis is a moment in a play or other work when a character makes a critical discovery. At the end of the play a messenger sent to settle Oedipus' nerves ironically does the opposite and connects the plot together as Oedipus discovers that he is the son and murderer of Laius and the son and husband of Jocasta.
  • Catharsis
  • Hubris is excessive pride or self-confidence. Oedipus displays a heavy hubris personality by acting upon his hamartia, anger. Not only is he acting out of anger by killing his father at the crossroads, but it would take a lot of blind self-confidence to attack a running carriage solo.
  • Nemesis
  • See here Jocasta, Apollo must have failed since my father, the one I was destined to kill, has died of natural causes.
  • Peripeteia is a sudden reversal of fortune or change in circumstances. When the messenger pieces the plot together by revealing key details about Oedipus' past, Oedipus realizes that everything he once thought he knew was a lie, that he is actually the man who curses this land, and that the fate his parents tried so desperately to avoid had already happened.
  • I find my wife and my mother dead before me, killed by her own hands.
  • Catharsis is the process of releasing strong or repressed emotions.The prologue displays deep pity for the suffering population of Thebes and fear of the future for the people. The Priest describes death in the fields and pastures, and death caused by the plague which grips the city, but Oedipus claims he will find the man who curses these lands and revive his people.
  • My friend Creon brings news that there is a man who curses this land and needs to be brought to justice. I will find him rest assured.
  • A nemesis is the inescapable agent of someone's or something's downfall. Oedipus' hubris personality displays itself as his nemesis. He has the enough pride to believe that he can defy the fate that the God Apollo had destined him.
  • Why is there a big hole infront of us?
