In the chapter Greece: Oedipus the King I find it very interesting that at the end he stabs his eyes because he cannot bare to witness what he has seen or done. The part that stood out to me the most is when Oedipus says,
“I raised two hands of mine, held them above my head,
And plunged them down,
I stabbed out these eyes,
Why should I have eyes? Why,
When nothing I saw was worth seeing?
I found this to be the quote that was the most shocking when reading this chapter; I did not think this is how he was going to react. What was the most shocking part for you?
