What are Oedipus accusations towards Creon?
Laius was the son of Labdacus. He was the father, by Jocasta, of Oedipus, who killed him.
Oedipus accuses Teiresias of “play[ing] [a] part” in the murder of Laius (line 414). He doesn’t appear to have any evidence to support this accusation; it’s just a “feeling” that Oedipus has (line 413).
What does Oedipus threaten to do? Oedipus threatens to punish Creon. Jocasta tries to assure Oedipus that he is not guilty of Laius’ death by saying no humans has skill in prophecy and tells him the story of the prophecy Laius received.
In Oedipus Rex, Oedipus blames the god Apollo for his fate, though he says that he alone is responsible for his reaction in blinding himself, which he does not regret.
Oedipus summons and questions a servant who escaped murder at the crossroads where Laius was killed. Oedipus tells Jocasta that as a child, a man once told him that his supposed mother and father (King and Queen of Corinth) were not his real parents.
Jocasta tells him that Laius was killed at a three-way crossroads, just before Oedipus arrived in Thebes. Oedipus, stunned, tells his wife that he may be the one who murdered Laius. Jocasta rejoices, convinced that Polybus’s death from natural causes has disproved the prophecy that Oedipus would murder his father.
How does Oedipus respond when Tiresias accuses him of killing Laius? Paying Tiresias to lie, and wanting to take the throne.
Creon says that Laius was killed by a gang of robbers. He also said that everyone else that was there was killed except for one person that ran away without being harmed.
Creon defends himself against Oedipus’s accusation by saying that Oedipus is not being wise by being stubborn and forgetting common sense.
Oedipus becomes very angry and insults Tiresias and claims that he must be involved in the crime and that he is conspiring against him. Tiresias finally tells Oedipus that he was the one who killed Laius.
Oedipus’ charge of treason against Creon is harsh and relentless. His tone is emotional, and he is focused on being right. In the play, Oedipus openly accuses Creon of conspiring with Teiresias to overthrow him.
Oedipus accuses Creon of trying to overthrow him, since it had been he who recommended that Tiresias come. Oedipus Accuse Creon Of A Conspiracy, Creon asks Oedipus to be rational, but Oedipus says that he wants Creon murdered.
