Storyboard Text

  • Conflict
  • Heroism
  • What is the creature that walks on four legs in the morning, two legs at noon, and three in the evening?
  • Man.
  • Foreshadowing & Dramatic Irony
  • Upon the murderer I invoke this curse-whether he is one man and all unknown, or one of many-may he wear out his life in miserable doom!
  • Here, we see Oedipus and his father, Laius, at a crossroad. When both of them don't move for each other, Oedipus kills Laius but does not know it's his father.
  • Sight
  • All of you here know nothing I will not bring to the light of day my troubles, mine-rather than call them yours.
  • Oedipus tells the Sphinx the answer to the riddle ending the plague that took over Thebes.
  • Foreshadowing
  • Yes, lead him off. So long as you are here, you'll be a stumbling block and a vexation; once gone, you will not trouble me again.
  • I have said what I came here to say not fearing your countenance: there is no way you can hurt me. I tell you, king, this man, this murder he is here.
  • This is an example of foreshadowing & dramatic irony because Oedipus is not aware that he is the murderer, and is stating his own demise to all of Thebes.
  • Dramatic Irony
  • The augur has spread confusion, terrible confusion; I do not approve what was said nor can I deny it. I do not know what to say;I am in a flutter of foreboding;I never heard in the present nor past of a quarrel between the suns of Labdacus and Polybus, that i might bring as proof in attacking the popular fame of Oedipus, seeking to take vengeance for undiscovered death in the line of Labdacus
  • This shows the sight or inner understanding that Teiresias has over Oedipus and how he knows all when Oedipus doesn't know that he is the murderer.
  • For God's sake if you know of anything, do not turn from us; all of us kneel to you, all of us here, your suppliants.
  • In this example Teiresias shows the true murder is among them and that Oedpius has stated his own demise within his proclamation.
  • Here we see that the strophe is stating that Oedipus could be the possible murderer.
