Storyboard Text

  • The parents of this baby don't want him and I'm not able to take him. Can you take care of him? I will give him for free.
  • Hamartia
  • Yub!
  • Hubris
  • See... I know that the oracles are worthless =P
  • The king died of old age!
  •   Peripetia
  • @@!
  • You bastard!!
  • The shepherd gives the baby to the messenger.  For the pity of the shepherd, he can't be indifferent to leave the baby alone; he decided to give Oedipus to the messenger of Corinth. On scene 4, for example, "... and I thought I could send it off to another country." After that, he becomes the prince of Corinth. This shows Hamartia because this is one of the causes that lead the hero's downfall.
  • Anagnorisis
  • WHYY?! WHY MEE?! SOMEONE, PLEASE GIVE ME AN ANSWER!!
  • For his excessive pride of thinking he is knowing his life better than the god does. this evidence shows the hubris of himself. For example, on scene 3, "The oracles, they are worthless." Oedipus believes that he can control his own life and despise the prophecy of the god. This shows hubris since he thinks he knows his own life better than the gods do.
  • Nemesis
  • HAHA! You deserve this!
  • Oedipus did not kill the unknown man. For the first time that he met his father. King Laius was insulting him of being a bastard, but Oedipus held his temper. For example, on scene 2,“... a drunken man accused me of being a bastard. I was furious, but I held my temper.” This shows Peripetia since he did not kill his father the first time. A luck for him that the prophecy didn't come so early!
  • Catharsis
  • The truth about Oedipus and his identity has solved and he realizes who he is. On scene 4 from the story, "O, O, O, Light of the sun, let me look upon you no more. Cursed is my life." This shows anagnorisis because he knows his real destiny came true and he makes a critical discovery about killing his parents at the end.  
  • There are some secrets has been showing up in the background of the story about his evil fate. He will kill his father for don't know who he is and has babies with his mother when he becomes the new king. That cannot be changed, even if he tries to stay away from it, he has actually come there closer. These are the fate that can't be avoided or nemesis.
  • THE END.
  • As a reader, I feel bad for him because he is trying to avoid his fate but he is going to the right path. He didn't do anything wrong to deserve his fate. He leaves Corinth for the purpose of not killing his own parents but it feels so bad for what is happening after that! This is Catharsis or the feeling of myself while reading the story.
