Oedipus Rex/Oedipus the King When is his epiphany?

Oedipus seeks verification of the messenger's story from the very same herdsman who was said to have left Oedipus to die as a baby. From that herdsman, Oedipus learned that the infant raised as the adopted son of Polybus and Merope was the son of Laius and Jocasta. Thus, Oedipus finally realizes that earlier at the crossroads, he had killed his own father, King Laius, and as consequence, had married his own mother, Jocasta.

Who is Oedipus ? Did he killed his mother for his girlfriend ? Serious question ?

Oedipus was a prince of an ancient Greek kingdom. When he was born, his father took him to an Oracle, who said that Oedipus would grow up to kill his father, and marry his mother. Horrified, he placed Oedipus on the hill where they used to put unwanted babies so they would die and be eaten by wolves, but Oedipus was saved by a childless couple. They raised him, and he grew to adulthood. Then, one day Oedipus bumped into someone on the street, got into an argument with him, which came to blows, and Oedipus killed the man. He felt bad about it, so he married the man's wife. Turns out, that man was his father, and he married his mother. That's why when male children are attracted to their mothers at a young age, they call it an Oedipus complex. Still don't know what it has to do with politics, though.



Oedipus is a shining example of a man with great insight but with great ignorance of others and even his own insight. He would probably make a pretty good programmer because he's impatience and hubris.

Oedipus was the son of Laius. The Delphic oracle foretold that Laius would be killed by his son, so Oedipus was abandoned on mount Cithaeron with a nail through his feet. However, he was found by a shepherd and raised by Polybus. Hearing that he would kill his father, Oedipus left Corinth and met Laius on his travel. He killed him in an argument not knowing who he was.

Did Sophocles write more than one play on Oedipus?

I'm writing a research paper on the character Oedipus and I keep seeing titles like "Oedipus Rex", "Oedipus Tyrannus", "Odepius the King", and "Oedipus the Colonus" on the internet and I was wondering are these all different plays or are they all just different names for the one same play?

Oedipus the King, Oedipus Tyrannus, and Oedipus Rex are all different names for the same thing.

Oedipus the Colonus is a different play.
