Oedipus Notes:
RECAP
-Oedipus keeps asking questions because he is trying to find an explanation about everything.
-Oedipus first thinks Jocasta is upset because she married someone that was not of noble status.
-Oedipus started putting everything together, and started realizing that he is the one that killed Lauis.
-Jocasta didn't say anything because she is realizing that Oedipus is her son, the killer of her husband, her new husband, and the father of her children.
THE END OF THE BOOK
-Oedipus blinded himself for all the wrongs she had done.
-Jocasta killed herself.
-Creon showed much mercy toward Oedipus.
-Before his girls come in Oedipus wants to be banished as soon as he can. But as soon as his daughters come in he doesn't want to leave them.
-He told both his daughters that they would have horrible lives.

A couple questions to think about:
Is there times in your life that when something happens you can't see it happening right in front of you?
What is a Hero? Why is Oedipus considered a tragic hero?
