Oedipus Discussion:
  • We took a picture of the book
  • Every greek play has a story behind it that the audience know
Oedipus Introduction:
  1. Proficy said that the child born in the city of thebes will marry his mother and kill his father
  2. so the people’s plan was taking the child to the mountains and leave him there to die
  3. A shepard took the child to the mountains to leave him to die, but he couldn’t do it
  4. A Queen decided to take the child and name him Oedipus and consider him her own
  5. Oedipus ends up in Thebes after a long time, only to find a terrible plague at Thebes
  6. When Oedipus tried getting to Thebes some guy tried to stop him, so Oedipus killed him to get to Thebes. (That guy was the King)
  7. The plague would end if someone solved the riddle “Something that walks on four legs in the morning, two in the afternoon and three at night.”
  8. Oedipus solved the riddle(a person), he also got rewarded by marrying the queen(His mum), as her husband(The king) was killed awhile ago.
  9. They had 4 children.
  10. Thebes had another plague a while after, the only way to end the plague was to find out who killed the Old king of Thebes.
