Personal Response

I was impressed, the play in general has a lot of explicit details but just when you thought that the story couldn’t get worse, it gets ten times worse. By explicit details I mean that we know that Oedipus was told he was going to kill his father and marry his mother, that alone is crazy but in the end he ends up gouging out his own eyes with his dead wife’s jewelry. After Jocasta’s death, three out of the fourth children of Oedipus have either taken their own life or killed each other. So yes, this was a very explicit but somehow interesting book which I liked.

  1. Hi Tiago! I was also surprised by the ending of the play, even though we already knew what was going to happen. I would like to hear more about your personal opinion about the play. Good job!
