Storyboard Text

  • Hamartia
  • I am cursed. I am going to kill my father and I don't even know it .
  • Hubris
  • I fled from Corinth so I would never kill my father
  • Oedipus, I am your father
  • Peripeteia
  • Oedipus' hamartia, his flaw that causes downfall, is that he was cursed since before his birth. This curse is a prophesy that he will kill his own father. The problem is that he never knew his father.
  • Anagnorisis
  • Oedipus also displays acts of hubris in the novel. In order to avoid his fate, he flees from Corinth, never to return, in effort to avoid killing his own father. Ironically this very act leads him to his real father and mother.
  • Nemesis
  • Guess this one can't be avoided
  • Once the truth is revealed about the fate of Oedipus, Jocasta hangs herself and Oedipus stabs himself in the eyes
  • Catharsis
  • After his confrontation with the herdsman, Oedipus realizes he is the son of Laius and Jocasta. He puts everything together and he has fulfilled the oracle. He killed his father and he slept with his mother.
  • The entirety of his life, Oedipus had an oracle that he could not avoid. This is that he would kill his father. He tried to avoid it by fleeing the place where his adoptive parents lived, but he did not know of his biological father where he fled to.
  • By the end of the play, an audience can help but feel sympathy for Oedipus. He killed his own father, his mother/wife is dead, and he is blind and exiled.
