The first example in Antigone is when King Laius, the king of Thebes, takes his son, Oedipus, to the oracle at Delphi. The oracle told King Laius that Oedipus, his son, would kill his own father and then marry his mother. King Laius thought he could change the fate if he got rid of his son. The King ordered his servant to take his son into the woods and kill him.
Sophocles does not provide background information as it would have been common knowledge. Prior to the opening of Oedipus Tyrannus, Oedipus has left his home and adoptive parents in Corinth in an attempt to escape a prophecy which declares that Oedipus will murder his father and marry his mother. Not knowing that his true parents are Jocasta and Laius, King and Queen of Thebes, Oedipus makes his way towards their city. Along the way, he kills a man travelling with a group who are later revealed to be Laius and his subjects. Oedipus continues and arrives at the Sphinx who has terrorized Thebes until someone solves her riddle.
Shakespeare puts us in a dilemma saying whether to live or not. That is the only imagery I could find in the whole speech. Hamlet delivers this speech when Polonius sends Ophelia to talk to Hamlet because he convinces king and queen that Ophelia rejecting his love is the reason behind Hamlet acting like a mad person. Hamlet delivers this speech to act like he is a crazy person to convince people that he is insane such that he can focus on revenge (killing Claudius).

Ironically, in seeking the truth, Oedipus incriminates himself, for he is the murderer of Laius. He is also presented with news that he is not the biological son of his parents in Corinth and vows to discover the identity of his real parents. Jocasta is the first to make the discovery that Laius is Oedipus's father, and she, his wife, is his mother. The shocking realization motivates her to discourage her son from making the discovery himself. Jocasta pleads “ Call off this search!
As more information is uncovered, Oedipus’ legacy is exponentially diminished as a childhood prophecy revolving around Oedipus, murdering his father and marrying his mother, is brought to light. Knowledge possesses the power to catalyse devastation in stages as demonstrated through Oedipus’ ignorance, his overwhelming curiosity, and his psychological anguish. From the beginning, Oedipus was raised in a legion of lies, believing Merope and Polybus to be his true parents. This cloak of ignorance not only shielded Oedipus from the knowledge of his biological parents, but allowed the prophecy to act as a catalyst for his fleeing of Corinth.
