Motifs: Oedipus Rex

Oedipus Rex

Sophocles, 430*
Famous for: Twisted family relationships and some stomach-turning eye-gouging.

In Oedipus, there’s a blind prophet who can “see” in a way that others can’t, and clear-sighted king named Oedipus who just can’t “see” the truth. What’s up with that? Check out Sophocles’ eye motif to see for yourself.
