*After watching the short video, draw the family tree of Oedipus.
Ismene(she is not mentioned in the video, but she is the daughter of Oedipus)
There are three instances of prophesy in Oedipus:
a.) The oracle tells Laius and Jocasta that their son will kill Laius and marry Jocasta.
b.) the oracle tells Creon that the plague will be lifted if the murderer of Laius is banished.
c.) Tiresias tells Oedipus of the same prophesy as Laius and Jocasta.
**This prophesy motif is prevalent in many Greek tragedies and reveals the theme of denial or blindness to the truth (symbolized by Oedipus gouging his eyes out at the end).
Create a simple drawing of your character chosen from the story (Oedipus,
Jocasta, Tiresias, Lauis, Creon, Antigone).
2. Label each sense – what the character may be seeing, hearing, saying, feeling,
3. These can be both physical and mental experiences (for instance, a person can
feel sad, but they can also feel the hot or cold of the weather depending on
Where the setting is).
4. You MUST use color!
I feel with my heart…
I feel with my hands…
I feel with my feet…
