Analyzing Oedipus the King

Oedipus the King – Analyzing Dramatic Irony

Analyzing Oedipus the King

1. Oedipus
I know you are all sick,
yet there is not one of you, sick as you are,
that is as sick as I myself.
Your several sorrows each have single scope
and touch but one of you. My spirit groans
for city and myself and you at once. (lines – 68-73)

All of you are ill,
even as ill as you are, there is not one of you,
ill like me.
your grieves only have one focus
and touch yourself. I cry
for not only the city, but myself all at once.
