Oedipus Notes:
-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.
-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?
